A History of Aguaglide

A passion for all things water led owner/founder David Johnson to relocate his business, North Sports, Inc. to White Salmon, WA in 1995.

In addition to building Aquaglide, Inc., North Sports has grown to handle the distribution for several of the largest brands in the windsurfing and kiteboarding industry.

The small town of White Salmon, located at the heart the Columbia River Gorge, is an outdoor sports mecca. The average summer day in ‘The Gorge’ finds hundreds of colorful kites and sails enjoying warm winds and clear water. When the wind is not blowing, the water is typically flat-calm, perfect for wakeboarding, waterskiing, towing, paddling, or just lounging in the sun.

It is for this reason why the Aquaglide brand was created in 2001.

From it’s first product, the sailing inflatable Multisport, the brand has grown steadily over the past 10 years to encompass a complete line of watersports products, including:

International distribution is expanding rapidly, currently covering over 35 countries. Naturally, the staff has grown as well, from three to over thirty.

However, despite this growth, several things have not changed. First and foremost, Aquaglide products are a direct result of the company’s passion for the water. Nearly everyone working at Aquaglide Inc. is there because they love the lifestyle and enjoy the products. This enthusiasm is shared by tens of thousands of Aquaglide customers around the world.

The Aquaglide slogan ‘All About Water’ is a statement about this shared enthusiasm, and has come to represent a connection between the company and it’s customers. Secondly, the Aquaglide brand continues an ongoing commitment to quality, innovation and service.
