GEAR REVIEW: EyeShaka Apparel

EyeShaka Thank You T-Shirts Hats

 

Our friends over at EyeShaka Apparel sent us some sick new gear to sport and show off to the paddling community in Vermont.

We love the T-shirts and Trucker Hats!!!

They also sent us some really cool Shaka stickers which we placed in a few paddling spots around the Stowe area. Find one of them, snap a photo, send it to us and you may just win something for your participation.

“The shaka symbolizes a lifestyle and way of thinking that we as owners embrace everyday. The sign of the shaka originated from Hawaii and is universally known in the action sports world, in particular those based around the ocean.

That’s what it’s about. That stoke.”
