Endeavor was founded in 2002 by professional snowboarder Max Jenke. It was born out of a desire to do things differently. To create products like no others. Focussing on the rider, on design and the emotions that snowboarding evokes. As the brand turns 20, we reflect on our journey and the legacy we pass on to the next generation of Endeavor riders.
Collaboration is in our DNA, working with artists to create snowboard graphics since day one. Approaching our 20th year, we continue to build on the foundations of our ethos, uniting with creators in their own spheres to craft products that reflect our passions for architecture, design and art.
Endeavor’s sustainability strategy is focussed on a wholistic approach, not only protecting our natural environment, but also human and ecological health. In order to qualify for this commitment, our goal is to become a certified B Corporation. The combination of third-party validation, public transparency, and legal accountability help Certified B Corps build trust and value. B Corp Certification is administered by the non-profit B Lab.

We would like to acknowledge that Endeavor Design Inc. operates on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilwətaɁɬ), Skwxwú7mesh, and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) people, commonly known as Vancouver, British Columbia.
Our mantra is to “Always Endeavor” and our community involvement is based on the idea of bringing positive, measurable change to the communities in which we operate in. For us, this is the combination of geography and boardsports.
