Northcore™ is a British based European surf & board riding company that's all about innovation and design. They offer fresh, practical, quality products designed to meet a need for surfers and adventure sports. Northcore also strives to maintain a socially responsible company ethos, with the long term support of environmental and recycling initiatives central to its outlook.
Recently Northcore approached us to design a bespoke collection of board bags for The Northcore Collective, a unique initiative through which they work with real craftsmen, creating classic pieces made to last a lifetime. In their own words, The Northcore Collective enables them to create the kinds of pieces that "we love to own."
Of course it's always a good time working with like-minded people and companies so not only were we flattered by the invite but we were more than happy to jump on board. For The Northcore Collective Chapman at Sea has created two board bags. They're modeled after our best selling bag, The Sailor, but in a special selection of colors and with a few details exclusive to this collaboration. There's also a bit of hand drawn artwork on each bag.
Like every Chapman at Sea board bag, these are designed to last a long time. They're available through Northcore only in both classic shortboard and retro shapes and they should be out for the 2015 holiday season. Visit Northcore for more info and while you're there check out all of their beautiful photos and films as well.
