High Tide mfg is Akasha Weisgarber, Gabe Langois and myself. The idea began over drinks with Gabe and Akasha to build a canadian snowboard brand that designs and builds boards in the mountains of British Columbia. The first step was a snowboard press which was built in the fall of 2013. The prototypes from the press were nearly a immediate success, my first board was an early model Hippy Slasher that I instantly fell in love with. Akasha and Gabe offered me the opportunity to join the crew in spring of 2014.
