Carve It For Life!

CIFL! is a 501c3 (pending) post traumatic stress healing program for veterans, first responders and their families.  Through CIFL, KOTA is committed to helping those who serve on the front lines, – overseas and here at home – find a lifelong path of healing by enjoying the freedom, community and recreation of longboarding.

Veterans with their longboards

Our freedom is fragile, protected daily around the world by warriors who put their lives on the line in service to our great country.

Serving Our
Servicemen and Women


KOTA Longboards includes Army, Navy and USAF tactical aviation veterans and graduates of the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN). Our combined tours include several trips to Iraq and Somalia.

KOTA actively supports veterans groups such as the Navy SEAL Foundation, Danny Dietz Leadership & Training Institute, the Wounded Warrior Project, Little Warriors: A Brian Bill Project and many others. Our intention is to show our appreciation for the service and sacrifices of our warriors in every way we can.

The greatest wound for a warrior is being ignored and forgotten. KOTA remains true to our brothers and sisters in arms.

We ride with you.

Planet 720

PLANET 720 refers to a callsign and a date – enough said.  It’s our way of remembering fallen comrades and a reminder to all KOTA Longboards enthusiasts that we dedicate a portion of our profits to veterans support causes.
