Pat Langley

Pat Langley founder of Vaikobi. After a successful career building a large Sailing technical apparel brand, Pat decided to strike out on his own and address what he saw as a big gap in the paddle sports market: designing technical apparel for the paddle sports athlete. Pat recognized that most of the major brands were focused on either white water or touring gear and no one was serious about developing clothing that was optimized for paddle athletes pushing their heart rates to the max on the water.
