We are super excited to be the first UK suppliers of Kold’s amazing new Polar range of kitesurf kit! Kold are a brand close to our heart as they are all about sustainability and their absolute passion for keeping our waters clean. Set up by Mario Rodwald, who has been riding since the age of 10, the Kold team are all about boards and accessories of the highest performance and quality that have been made in an eco-friendly process. Rodwald has grown up competing and designing his own boards, so he is an expert in what makes the best kind of board. He was inspired to start Kold after travelling and being horrified by the increasing amounts of plastic and pollution in our world’s waters.
The Kold team have since made a documentary about plastic pollution which has shaped the philosophy of their company. They use zero-plastic packaging with their boards and try to use as much reusable material as possible to avoid wastage along the way. Based in Germany, Kold only use production partners in Europe to minimise travel pollution, which also means it is speedy for designs and ideas to be transported. They use ARKTIK technology to offset the minimal carbon footprint that is picked up along the production line, meaning all of their products are carbon neutral. We love Kold because they are made up of a tight-knit team of friends, much like Coda, who share their love for the sport and for our planet. This is an incredibly exciting time for them as a brand, so we are stoked to be bringing them to the UK. If you want any more details on the Kold team and their awesome products, just give us a shout.
