Coldwater Edits Volume III | The Forgotten Archipelago

Roark Revival has created a unique niche for itself. It’s entire foundation has been built on the premise of travelling to unique locations around the world, surfing new waves, experiencing new cultures, and bringing the feelings and ideas back from each of these trips to build their seasonal offerings. This one of a kind business model has created some of the most interesting and assorted offerings we carry, and each item certainly has a story behind it.

Roark’s latest adventure brought them to a remote and freezing corner of the earth, and together with filmer Ben Weiland, they created the short movie The Forgotten Archipelago. It does an excellent job of capturing the moods and the overall feeling of their trip, and reminds viewers of the well known fact to experienced travelers that it’s not just the destination, it’s the journey. While they didn’t necessarily score the most epic waves, they did get some good barrel time, and experienced a land few people ever will.

As with our other coldwater edits, we will be offering an extra special deal on Roark Revival gear through the weekend, just add any Roark Revival item into your cart and get an extra 10% off!! Expires 12/16 at midnight, and can be combined with any ongoing sales!

The Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic is on for the 23rd year! We are excited to be back with a live event after two years of virtual events. This year’s contest holds special meaning to the northwest surfing community as we will start off the event Friday evening with a paddle-out in honor of long time contest participant and avid northwest surfer, John Newman. We will also celebrate others we’ve lost in the last two years.
