Knights of the Air

In 1903, the Wright brothers flew the first powered flight on a beach near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.  When the world went to war in 1914, powered flight was still a relative novelty - romantic and daring.

First coined in France, the title 'Knights of the Air' was given to the daring pilots who flew these early airplanes into combat.  Knights of the Air was more than a moniker as it embodied the chivalric code from medieval times.  This code of courage, honor and esprit de corps often defined the conduct of pilots even amid the desperation of aerial combat.

KOTA Longboards embraces the concept of chivalry forged in the air by these brave warriors.  We strive to bring you handcrafted longboards of the highest quality and sophisticated styling.  We're honored that you have an interest in our product.  Enjoy the ride!
