change the game!

Anticonf is the abbreviation for "anticonformiste" meaning "against the standard" in French. Since the inception of the first products, back in 2007, our main driver was to challenge the status quo and the established rules. 

 

We think ouf of the box, we develop new ideas, we limit our ecological footprint. Our objective stands in three simple words:

 

CHANGE THE GAME!

the rest is history...

The first "Anticonformiste" longboards were developed in 2007, using advanced materials and technologies. The green transition occurred in 2014. From then on, the brand renamed "Anticonf" would only produce high performance gear that are among the most sustainable on the market.
