Started in Summer of 2015, Akquire is the result of two passions, graphic design and extreme sports. I have been involved in extreme sports for over 20 years starting off with skateboarding, then moving onto skiing then snowboarding, dirtbiking and finally wakeboarding. Some of my most fond memories growing up took place in skate-parks, lift-lines, fields and docks. When not participating in those sports I was heavily involved in various types of art as well as Graffiti. Graffiti has always had an influence on my art and this can be seen in many of the styles Akquire offers.
Akquire isn’t just a style, its a way of life. A way of life that inspires you to seek greatness, both in yourself and in others. We share this inspiration in mediums we love and understand. The scrape of a deck on the concrete, the crunch of groomed snow under your board, and the feel of the wind in your face as you carve across the wake.
Our mission is to provide eye-catching clothing, accessories and hard goods to those who seek greatness in their chosen medium of street, snow, or water.
