HAWAIIAN ISLAND CREATIONS // HIC


In 1971, brother Stephan and Jimmy Tsukayama opened Kailua Bike Shop on Uluniu Street. A year later, the infamous Energy Crisis was upon us. Bike sales soared and with the additional capital the company expanded into the wholesaling of packaged plant items. To appeal to the tourist industry, "Hawaiian Island Creations" was composed in 1972 and Paul Ichimura was commissioned to create the present distinctive symmetrical logo.

In 1974 marked the relocation to the present Kailua store on Hahani Street. Surf accessories and "Kailua Surfboards" were introduced. A year later, a full-scale skateboarding department was added. The opening of the board of water supply products, one of the first surfboard manufacturing factories soon followed.

Hic's reputation of warm and friendly personal service influenced the management of Ala Moana Center to a rare invitation to HIC to open a bike and surf shop. By the summer of 1980 the HIC flagship store opened as Hawaiian Island Sports. Five years later HIC Bike and Surf opened in the Pearlridge Shopping Center. The same year, the wholesale division and board of water supply products were closed so emphasis could be placed on the growing retail division.

In October 1995, HIC opened in Haleiwa Town on the North Shore of Oahu. The next few years brought dramatic changes to the make-up of the company. HIC's first Japan Addition opened in the city of Chiba In April 1997. Presently Coral Head in California is the national HIC clothing licensee and CDR is the surfboard licensee. Internationally, HIC has licensees in the USA, Europe, Australia, Brazil, and Japan.

"In 1991 Coral Head, Inc. became the domestic clothing licensee and handles all manufacturing for the United States.

Finally in 1999 Coral Head, Inc. purchased the
tradename & trademark
for the the United States."


In engem Kontakt zur Muttergesellschaft auf Kailua Hawaii ist seit Jahrzehnten ein Image von Hawaiian-Island-Creations entstanden, das kompromisslos und ehrlich für Qualität, Funktion, Authentizität dieser Coremarke gerade steht.
Nicht zuletzt durch 3 Weltmeistertitel, die wir mit Andy Irons unser eigen nennen dürfen, hat Hawaiian-Island-Creations Weltweit unter Beweis gestellt, wie wertvoll es ist, seiner Philosophie treu zu bleiben. Sowohl bei der unschlagbaren Qualität seiner Surfboards als auch der Mode und Accessoires setzt Hawaiian-Island-Creations Zeichen.
Hawaiian-Island-Creations = Enjoy the ride
