Sandbox was started by Kevin Sansalone almost by accident. Whilst growing up in Vancouver, Canada Kevin became immersed in the world of snowboarding. Caught up in the whirlwind that was the growth of the industry he became a sponsored rider entering competitions, riding for magazines and producing Sandbox Films. This led to the creation of Sandbox helmets which are totally rider inspired and developed. Sandbox continues to create products which defy the norm including their famous peaked helmet. The Sandbox mission always has and always will be to produce tough as hell helmets that people will actually want to ride in.
