ABOUT BEAR WALKER

MY ALARM DOESN'T GET ME UP IN THE MORNING. THIS DOES.

Every day I'm ready to push boundaries that keep art and innovation separate.
I'm a builder of legacy, and committed to respecting the old-school craftsmanship and culture of skate. I'm going to make dope shit that hits you in the gut and that makes you remember those times as a kid when you were so proud to own something that you made it your own. You're a part of my artistic vision. And that shared feeling, that vibe that has brought us together, is what Bear Walker is all about.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY.

What happens when you mix a college art project with passion, hard work, and a desire to build my own vision of what a skate board could be? You get Bear Walker.

From a tiny room in a warehouse in South Carolina, to a room in a barn on my family’s farm in Alabama, what began as Locamotiv in 2013 grew to be able to kill my day job remodeling houses, and in 2016 morphed into Kodiak Boards. From there, and a lot of sleepless nights fueled by ideas and stoked with passion, I broke ground on Bear Walker Industries in 2017.

Together with a friend from my skate community who became my business partner, we are on a mission to make the best products in the world that stay tru to my original vision of what art and skate could be.

BEAR WALKER.
MY NAME IS MY PROMISE.

I only make things that I'm passionate about. And everything I make is built to enjoy the ride. I want you to have fun using products grounded in authentic skate traditions, but customized with art and pop-culture references unique only to my work. You'll find a killer attention to detail and innovation in my materials and techniques that you should expect with every product, whether you have it hanging on your wall or use it for an easy cruise down the block.

I MADE THIS. FOR YOU.

Just you. Only you. Everything I create has you in mind, because I know you value artistry and innovation and can tell when something doesn't feel authentic or world-class. I know what it means to make a purchase that expresses your hard-earned work too. I share that passion and commitment. It took me 5 years of testing to perfect my signature patented grip, 3 years to get the Hyberium wheels just right, and even more time is in store for what I have up my sleeves. But you'll know it when you see it, because it was created with you in mind.
