As creative professionals, we are naturally building decks for the style conscious as well as the performance seeker. Monarc prides itself on cultivating a visual language that sets itself apart from the crowd, crafting designs that look equally great going fast or standing still.
We believe that we can make it here and make it great.
All of our partners are other North Carolina small businesses.
THE STORY OF OUR NAME
B O L D D E S I G N I S A C O R E V A L U E
Monarc rebels against the idea that boards or board riders should look a certain way.
We believe that the skate deck has always been and will always be an incredible canvas for artists and designers to explore and for riders to celebrate as an expression of their individuality.
As such, Monarc products can be recognized by crisp, bold, and colorful graphic designs. Our aim is to proudly display an aesthetic that is modern, timeless and optimistic.
The name Monarc was derived and inspired from the latin “arcesso montis” meaning: “invite the hill”.
Our boards, from day one were designed to be superlative high speed downhill tools, so this meaning immediately resonated with everyone on our team.
As our mission and vision for Monarc grew, so too did our interpretation of the name.
To “invite the hill” meant building products that would inspire confidence among riders of all experience levels so that they could tackle their next ride with the best tool for the job.
To “invite the hill” is to accept challenge and celebrate exploring the unknown.
It was not long after that our motto: ROAM BOLDLY took hold as our mantra for what we wanted all of our riders and customers to accomplish with our products.
It's our hope that you invite the challenging hills in your life to change you. Explore your world and your limits and enjoy the incredible perspective that riding can provide.
