"At our core, we want to inspire you to get outside and find the same appreciation for the backcountry we have. We’re a small company with the mountains just minutes from our office. We test product in these mountains and make gear that you can trust when you’re out there.
We started Big Agnes almost twenty years ago without a real plan, but with a pretty good idea: to make the best gear possible to help folks like you get outside and chase your dreams. Respected industry vets told us we were crazy. The camping market was ‘too saturated,’ they said…We were driven to make better gear and be part of some really cool adventures, so we kept at it.
The Big Agnes System, our original concept of affixing a sleeping pad and bag in a simple way, was born and everything evolved from there. We believe that innovation is born from real-world product testing, and that gear should be pushed to its limits. The photos, product reviews, stories and crazy adventures you share from all over the world are what keep us motivated. You’re using our gear exactly as intended…hard, often, and in ways we never imagined."
Latitude 44 Sports is staffed by outdoor enthusiasts who strive to share the stoke of the great outdoors by helping customers sell and buy great gear at great prices. We’re product experts who are obsessed with offering a true customer-focused experience, connecting sellers to buyers and buyers to gear that will get them outside doing the sports they love. We promise to always provide consigners the best rates and terms in Central Oregon and to provide a fun, customer-oriented, and clutter-free shopping experience.
Founded in 2010 and based in beautiful Bend, Oregon, Stand on Liquid’s guiding principle is that there's a perfect board for every type of paddler.
We offer the largest inventory of paddle boards and board accessories on the West Coast, designing and selling the Stand on Liquid collection, as well as distributing nearly 60 other trusted brands of boards and accessories.
When we're not working with customers to find the perfect board, we love to spend our free time on the local rivers and lakes, as well as the cold waters of the Oregon coast (or the warm waters of Punta Mita, Mexico and Hawaii’s Kohala Coast). By doing so, we believe we've created a dynamic SUP development lab, obsessed with learning what resonates with customers.

We teach kids the joy of being active for life! Our coaches, program directors and board of directors are passionate about the organization and children. As an integral part of our community, we are parent partners and kid advocates who look after each other, cheer each other on and face adversity together.
Twenty-three years ago, passionate members of the local ski community came together to provide snow opportunities to members of the community with disabilities.
