Coincidence or meant to be?


Recommended Posts

Huh, I've always liked the birds (I actually really like the whole topsheet on the MK! :-), but I hadn't noticed that. You may have to contact Joe Hodnicki (http://sharingthestoke.com/post/148376727312/here-is-my-donek-snowboard-in-the-running-for) to ask him!  (Don't know if he's a BOL member, or not...)

"People often ask where the name Donek came from. When we began making boards in 1987, a friend was breeding Donek Yugoslavian acrobatic pigeons. These birds dive doing an axial roll and fly faster than a peregrine falcon. Their speed, flight, and freestyle nature made the name Donek an obvious choice."

The name of the pigeon "Donek" apparently comes from turkish and means "turning and dropping down from the sky", so there's that.

Also, the pigeon's wikipedia page has a link to a disambiguation of Donek Snowboards, whose page doesn't exist. This shall be changed.
