Carlsbad Loses Snowboard Clothing Company

by The Editors on February 28, 2008

Holden Outerwear, a snowboard clothing company that has been operating as part of the Carlsbad-based K2 Sports for nearly seven years is leaving Carlsbad for Portland, Oregon.

The company has had its design, marketing and some of its production business in Portland since it launched in 2001. But the company had a license agreement with Carlsbad, Calif. company Earth Products for sales and distribution. . . The parties announced Wednesday that they’ve decided to end the agreement.

So long, Holden.

I always wondered why someone would build a snowboard company in Carlsbad California. After all we never get any snow. How do you test the product out?

BTW – Cool picture of Carlsbad Beach with both the Sea Wall and the Encina Power Plant. A great North County surf spot.
