Olympic Champions/Co-Owners David Wise & Julia Mancuso

Built with Champions

David Wise

David is the most decorated halfpipe skier of all time, a father, and Co-Owner at AKOVA | SHRED DOG.

He joined SHRED DOG as he saw a lack of availability for high quality, high performing children's gear. And now, with AKOVA, he has helped design the perfect men's kit.

"Even on the best powder days, kids can't have fun if they are cold. AKOVA and SHRED DOG gear increases our family time outside."

Julia Mancuso

Julia is the most decorated American Olympic female alpine skier, mother, and Co-Owner and Head of Industry Development at AKOVA | SHRED DOG.

She was drawn to SHRED DOG to provide clothes that make her kids' lives on and off the slopes easier and more enjoyable. And now, with AKOVA, she has helped design the ultimate women's resort kit.

"Kids need to have fun memories of skiing to get back on the mountain time and time again, which requires staying warm with proper gear."
