Hello from Tom and Allison Carter!
We both were fortunate enough to grow up at the beach and raise our wonderful kids in Dana Point, CA. We have always been drawn to the beach but also had a mutual love and desire for the country life. We quickly realized that there are so many people with these same interests, that when we connected with award winning artist Robert Pace Kidd of Longboard Cowboys, it was as if we were meant to team up.
30 years ago, 6 cowboys were sitting around in the Descanso Town Hall, working on tri-tip and tequila. One cowboy was a horse trainer, another a bit and spur maker, one a leatherman, one a rancher, one a legendary surfboard shaper and another an artist. After talking, they put together that they all surfed up and down the coast into Baja in the '60s and '70s and cowboyed by the sea. This is when our business partner, Robert Pace Kidd, Artist/Founder and one of the original cowboys, coined the phrase "Longboard Cowboys". We felt compelled to carry on this legacy and have since taken Robert Pace Kidd's artwork and created, Longboard Cowboys.
Longboard Cowboys is more than selling merchandise, it is a sense of community and family. We take our passion and stories and bring it along to each rodeo and surf event that Longboard Cowboys is a part of.
The Longboard Cowboys Lifestyle is about appreciating and respecting God's beauty of the sand, sun, ocean, mountains, meadows and ranch life.
