About Us

Gabriel Steptoe and I met in 1998. We share a love for surfing, skateboarding and the art and lifestyle that it embodies. We poured all of that into KIST (KI: King, ST: Steptoe) a custom skateboard and surfboard manufacturer as well as apparel distributer. Normally the term "downhill" holds a negative connotation. Not to us. We're always headed downhill and we would not have it any other way. Feel free to contact us directly with any questions, requests or to just chit chat.
