The name LYNX, originally was nicknamed in 2004 from a body of water in Virginia Beach called Linkhorn Bay, which is a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. The concept came from a group of close friends that spent every day they could wakeboarding and wakesurfing on this body of water. After competing in tournaments they became known by others as the “LYNX Crew.” Lynx then became known as the company Lynx Shreds as some of the best athletes in the country in other sports joined the team. Their affection for the water later evolved into more of a passion for not only the culture and lifestyle around their sports, but also for respecting our oceans, bays, and environments.
Our desire is to protect these enviroments we love. That is why we now donate a portion of all the proceeds from every Mid-Atlantic sale to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and a portion of every national/international sale to the Surfrider Foundation.
