RICHARD and TOMAS ÖHMAN
Founders and Managing Brothers, Tomas and Richard Öhman , have always had a passion for the outdoors, the ocean and the mountains, designing and building their equipment. Avid sailors, they built their first boat at the age of 12 and 13. The brothers continued to combine their passion of designing, building and riding. They shaped their own surfboards and windsurfing boards back in the early eighties, travelling around Europe, the US and Africa riding and gliding.
The Point 65 team was strengthened in 2004 by living paddling legend Nigel Foster. Nigel did not only bring his legacy to Point 65 but also the history of modern paddling.
His international reputation is built on his designs (he has designed six sea kayaks), his numerous books and articles, his teaching, his instructional videos and DVDs, and his expeditions. Nigel Foster is an international kayak teacher and has become an icon of modern sea kayaking. Nigel is the designer behind the Point 65's Whisky 16 and Double Shot as well as the Point 65's Nigel Foster paddle and the Explorer PFD.
