evo is the business equivalent of the garage band that made it big. In 2001, Bryce Phillips and a friend started selling skis and snowboards online and shipping them from his garage, making sure they finished their work before ski season. More than ten years later, evo is one of the biggest—and coolest—action-sports retailers in the state. But it's not just about the gear – it’s a lifestyle – and their Fremont store (read: hangout) is proof.
There is music, art, photography and an anything-can-happen vibe that encourages loitering (the good kind). evo feels like the ultimate board sports’ enthusiasts dream garage, because basically that is what it is.
