WHY RiiN?


 

RiiN launched May, 2016 when ocean advocate and artist, Dylan Trumbull, felt it was time to lift the “Brain Fog” from a critical brain surgery that required the removal of an invasive tumor at the end of 2014. RiiN started out as a project that served as a recovery tool, and has evolved to what it is today. Despite the balance of recovery and bringing vision to life, Dylan stayed true to persistence in getting through the roller-coaster ride. Using his passion and love for the ocean, Dylan contributes his entirety to creating RiiN as a direct extension of himself.

We ask you to join our RiiN family! The two i’s in RiiN represent community, an indicator that there is no “i” in a team.

RiiN isn’t just another board short company, but rather takes an approach to being mindful in a way to make sustainability fashionable. All boardies and RiiN product incorporate a piece of recycled sail in a unique way. Each sail has its own story, and as a member of our RiiN family, you become a part of this story.
