How did the Dead Kooks vs Attaquer collaboration come about?
With a passion for cycling and background in triathlon, Eden of Dead Kooks wanted to marry his passion for the sea with his other love of the road. While at the same time the boys from Attaquer were looking for a way to combine the joy of surfing, with their all consuming love for cycling.
Dead Kooks and Attaquer respect what each other are doing in their field, and have a mutual admiration for one another’s products. Both labels enjoy the sports of cycling and surfing, so it made sense to work on a project which could combine some of these things, With Dead Kooks making boards for any of the top Australian triathletes this collaboration brings it all together.
This collaboration carries on the values of creating a distinctive aesthetic while offering a product of the highest quality, integral to Both the Dead Kooks and Attaquer labels.
