About Pure Stoke®

We have been in business for 35 years – you may be familiar with us by our former name, 2nd Wind Sports! Pure Stoke® has evolved over the last 34 years into a 4-season premium outdoor retailer, equipping you with not just gear for the wind and not just 2nd hand gear. 

In the summer we feature everything you need for kiteboarding, stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing, camping, hiking and skateboarding as well as all the local knowledge and hands-on gear knowledge that you want to know!

In the winter we turn our attention to downhill skiing, cross-country and skate skiing as well as snowboarding and backcountry accessing gear with avalanche safety equipment, winter camping gear, snowshoes, and all the books.  

We will always do what we love, sell what we use, and do the research for you!
