Since the origin of skateboarding the Pro-Tec name has been synonymous with board sports. Enabling legends like Steve Caballero and Christian Hosoi to push the limits of what was possible on a skateboard. That dedication and evolution transcended outward and onward to concrete slayers of all forms and shapes, both 2 wheels and 4. Naturally when Snowboarders took the surf skate approach to the mountain Pro-Tec was once again there to protect these pioneers, rebels, and rule breakers paving yet another path for a lifestyle we would adopt.
