LIVE AND SHARE THE GOOD LIFE
COPSON is transcendent.
It's taken us a while to figure out why we live the way we do, why we create the things the way we do, why we express things the way we do. When people ask what COPSON is, we've never ourselves even been too sure.
After skimming through Glen E. Friedman's iconic book on the birth of skate culture in the ‘70s, that 'thing' I'd been searching for to explain this rampant and unexplainable vision finally clicked.
“Speed, concentration, and commitment leading to a new horizon of sensory and spiritual awareness.”
Nostalgia. Desire. Freedom. Romance.
Ultimately they all provide the same thing – that moment of escapism, a brief step into something else, a moment that you can’t describe, something abstract. Our logo embodies that moment: when the sun goes down over the sea horizon.
Our roots were planted in lazy and long days skateboarding under the sun, but as we grow, and you grow with us, we want to provide you with that feeling, whatever it may be.
"ecstasy ˈɛkstəsi/Submit noun 1. an overwhelming feeling of great happiness or joyful excitement. "there was a look of ecstasy on his face" synonyms: rapture, bliss, elation, euphoria, cloud nine, seventh heaven, transports, rhapsodies; More 2. an emotional or religious frenzy or trance-like state, originally one involving an experience of mystic self-transcendence."
Follow your joy, if you lose it, do the things you need to do to rediscover it; then everything else falls into place.
Whether it’s love drugs, skateboarding, raving, or a kundalini yoga class - the feelings mutual.
Good life used to be skating and drinking street beers under the Barcelona sun, now that escapism and hedonism perhaps has turned into a more inward benevolent approach. To live a truly good life, we believe that materialism combined with a deeper exploration of yourself, is where true self transcendence can lie.
Lets take it higher. Join us. This thing is timeless.
