Leatherman (Sport) is here and guiding that ship is Lee Leatherman, son of multi-tool inventor, Tim Leatherman. Lee experiences life to the fullest and rolls with whatever is thrown his way. As a surfer and outdoorsman, it’s all about getting out there, trying new things and breaking it down to find out exactly what works for you — a great philosophy when creating new tools that are built to enhance a specific sport. It is clear that making the best tool for the given situation is most important for Lee and his Dad, who started the company in 1983.
Take a few minutes to get to know Lee a little bit more while he was travels south from the Oregon coast to the southern tip of Baja. Many times things don’t always go as planned and if you’re able to dig in and enjoy yourself, it can change the whole experience for the better and turn it in to, well, an adventure.

Kent Sherwood (Jay Adams’ step-dad) was the man behind the manufacturing of the Zephyr Fiberglass skateboard. In 1976, Jay Adams and Kent split from the Zephyr team and started the short lived E-Z Rider brand that then became Z-Flex Skateboards that is still around today. With his refined skill in fiberglassing they launched the first Z-Flex skateboards in 1976 from his workshop in Venice. Coming out initially with three different shapes, with the inclusion of the Jimmy Plumer later, Z-Flex Skateboards was one of the premier skateboard brands of that era.
Now generations strong, Z-Flex remembers its rich history and continues its path of determination and dedication to skateboarding through a limited release of iconic Z-Flex Vintage Premium (ZVP) products.
