Since the early days of tshOtsh, we have taken inspiration from the core freestyle and wakestyle aspects of kiteboarding, that have no boundaries or rules, other than going for it !
Therefore we have always been focusing more on what is going on aside from the mainstream competiton scenes, since we believe this is where it all happens.
If we had to name one of the most influential and active riders in this scene it would, without a doubt, be 26 year old Californian Eric Rienstra! He is constantly adapting new tricks and wrecking his body to take slider and kicker shredding to the next level.
Today we are proud to announce that Eric and his dreads have joined the tshOtsh crew for new adventures and rad fashion !

The origin of tshOtsh ®
The name tshOtsh® sounded rapidly as obvious to us. Indeed, on our Kite bars we have this small connecting piece called the donkey dick. In France we call it the "tchoutch". It sounds different however the purpose is the same, connect the rider to his Kite as tshOtsh® connects us to our passion !
To make the technical term tchoutch more, original and memorable, we decided to keep only one vowel "O" and create symmetry with "tsh" on each side.
Decoding the Logo B.O.B "Brotherhood Of Boardriders"
If the DNA for tshOtsh come from kiteboarding, we keep in mind that we are at first Boardriders, constantly in search of adrenaline and contact with the elements, whether we are in town in the mountains, on a lake, or at sea.
Therefore we wanted our logo, to be a tribute to the 9 major Boardsports of our time and the symbol of the emergence of new generations of riders.
The Boardsports are showcased in historical order of appearance in an "S" form and symbolized by identical dots grouped in square formation. kiteboarding comes as last at the top right shifted position, to highlight the innovative aspect and the amazing 3D possibilities it offers !
People from all over the world protest naked because they can't find boardshorts with pockets and zipped flies to be comfy and stylish beyond the beaches...
