Analog Clothing – A snowboarding and skateboarding clothing heaven

 “It’s written in our DNA. It’s woven into the fabric of our constitution. It was in Trevor Andrew’s first Analog I-Pod jacket and it’s scratched on the bottom of Nathan Fletcher’s 4-fin. It’s the ultra-thin thread that ties together surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding. It’s the fearless voice calling you to Liberate, Unify, Mobilize and Resolve. It’s non-digital, low-technology. It’s the new elitism. It’s Analogic”.

Since the beginning of the action sports market, influential kids have gravitated towards progressive and creative movements within snowboarding, skateboarding and surfing. Analog is a clothing company born in outerwear, raised at the beach and entrenched in cities everywhere. Analog is an invitation to take a stand, make a point, challenge a value and open a few minds.

Hardcloud dream team – surfing and snowboarding fashion

Hardcloud is UK’s answer to online surf /skate and music inspired fashion.  The brand is a true reflection and belief of the people involved.  That means Ian, Roger and the rest of the ever expanding team!

“Surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, bmxing, mountain biking, moto-x, drinking, listening to music, lifestyle and action sports…we all do at least three of these things each, and that is what Hardcloud is about.
We wear what we sell.

As surfers and all the rest of it the things that influence us in everyday life are pretty simple, listening to a new track for the first time, surfing at our local break (Wittering rocks!), going out with our mates. These are the things that help us decide what kind of clothes to offer”. Quote Roger.

Anyway here’s the dream team…

Ian Madden (Big E)
12 years experience in surf/skate/snow retail. Founder of the first proper action sports website…got bored. Surfs (badly), wakeboards (less badly) used to skate Southsea in the days of the Abrooks, likes holidays to hot places. In summary – athletic (skinny), nose 80% of total body weight, funny (yeah right)

Roger Moon (Scrawn)
10 years abusing computers, 5 years in the surf/skate trade. Founded the first proper action sports website with Ian a few years ago, now seeks new challenge! Surfs too much (poo stance), hates snow! Well known for wearing elasticated waist cargo pants well into his twenties but thankfully now cured. In summary – funny, has upgraded to a house with stairs, is worried about hair loss.

Clive Milverton (Lofty)
Likes going naked fishing with his brother, surfing, mountain biking, motorbikes and birds (feathered variety). Hard working and conscientious he is a solid fixture in the team. In summary – doesn’t like dwarf jokes, strong, short legs.

Jonny Day (The Airedale)
7 years experience in the watersports industry also loves kitesurfing and surfing. Has tried London life but has returned to his passion of the action sports industry and the coast. Has also spent a good few years abusing computers and works on our online marketing as well as a bit of everything else we can throw at him! In summary – fields different facial hair weekly, likes a laugh, loves holidays.

Tony Gainsbrough (Big T)
After running his own radio station for 4 and half years, our very own resident music man DJ Tony SlackShot joined the ever growing cloud. Likes music a lot and his brain is better than any Wikipedia discography, likes kayaking and the sea, hates being cold and always wears a jacket in doors! In summary – never makes tea, loves food and enjoys the quiet life in his castle.

Duran Searle (Duranoff, D-Ran, Duuran)
Trained in England and refined in Australia, our travelling graphics genius is also head of the graphics team. Likes to see Friday 5.30pm and an evening out with the boys planning there next adventure, occasionally has meetings with hard inanimate objects. Super hardworking and always delivers on time. In summary – bit of a joker, has plenty of stories and wants to be a surfer really.

Chris Moore (Jedward)
Chris is a longstanding member of the team and we are glad to have him on board. The full time graphics maestro and computer nerd knows what needs to be done. We have learnt that this one is a sarcastic genius and waits until you least expect it to drop in some comedy gold. In summary – Doesn’t like wearing shorts, enjoys kick dancing

Dave Robertson (Big Dave)
Dave is the newest member at the cloud working under the watchful eye of Duran/Chris as our graphics junior. Loves kitesurfing (he’s good), his car and also enjoys an evening on the Xbox with wittering crew. In summary – Likes biscuits, will be surfing by the time we have finished with him!

Akoo Clothing Website or the new Collection?

Which one is better, the Akoo Clothing website or the new collection?

Akoo Clothing Website Interface

Akoo Clothing Fall Collection

We have concluded that the clothing range gets plenty of press bigging up the shirts, tees, polo shirts, bottoms and jeans.

Akoo Clothing Wesite Interface

However, a few words of appreciation should be shown to the website design, the buffalo and the deer. Yes, it takes a minute or two to load and its a little disjointed when you start clicking on things but when it crawls to a flashy stop it feels good and somewhat satisfying.
