We are thrill seekers, veterans, pilots, skiers, bikers, athletes, outdoors nuts and, of course, longboarders. We love having fun, going fast, the wind in our face and challenging gravity. Carving on a high performance KOTA longboard is like flying a fighter jet on a low level through the mountains – thrilling. We know, ‘cause we’ve done it!
What else revs our engines? Making high performance longboards with a refined style. At the apex of performance and style – that’s KOTA. It’s your life, carve it.
Our team includes a number of military aviators who flew everything from Navy F-14 Tomcats to USAF F-117 Stealth Fighters to Army Blackhawk helicopters. We know precision power combined with innovative design leads to superior performance. That knowledge drives us relentlessly at KOTA.
Our legal disclaimer is borrowed from the U.S. Navy LSO School, ‘Rectum Non Bustus’ – which loosely translated means, ‘Don’t Bust Your Ass’. Ride hard, have fun, be safe.
Our freedom is fragile, protected daily around the world by warriors who put their lives on the line in service to our great country. 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, Veteran’s Passport to Hope and the Wounded Warrior Project. 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.
