Where We Began ...
AWOL Founder Kayleigh Dickson found a love of snowsports whilst studying for her Masters of Architecture at the University of Westminster, UK. The course was intense, therefore snowsports became her mental and physical escape, however it was once she graduated with honours, that she realised that sitting behind a desk wasn't for her. AWOL was founded on a gap-season, whilst Kayleigh was training for her BASI Snowboard Level 2 exam, now we are working with some rad skiers and snowboarders.
AWOL Snowsports are a small team of snowsports and climbing professionals, who all share a passion for being in the mountains. Currently we are designing apparel, which are all organic, recycled or sustainable products for the snowsports and rock climbing industries.
When designing our clothing we wish to remain true to our ‘all inclusive’ values, designing for men and women equally, skiers and snowboarders alike.
Since establishing AWOL, this shift in the industry has seen snowboarding become as respected as skiing at an international level. Free-skiing and snowboarding are now a World Cup sports and freestyle for both disciplines takes centre stage at the Winter Olympics; terrain parks are dominated by young riders and the emergence of backcountry freestyle for the UK shredders has been remarkable.
Are We All About Snowsports?
Hell NO! We share a love of being in the mountains, whether that is on a snowboard, pair of skis or scaling a rock face. From winter to summer at AWOL it is all about being within the mountains, exploring new territories.
Ethically sourced organic cotton from farmers in the the UK allows us to support the local businesses and communities.
