Chuck Priest, Owner & Creative Designer
With more than 25 years of experience in the sport of skydiving, Chuck has contributed enormously with his designs and innovations to the industry.
A little history...
In 1996 he opened Da’Kine Rags Hawaii, a custom skydiving apparel
manufacturer creating highly sought-after styles. Chuck has designed and produced apparel for Warner Bros, Discovery, IMAX, Sports Illustrated, among others.
In 1998 he worked closely with Patrick de Gayardon in his test jumping of first generation wingsuit development. His first wingsuit flight was in a self-made wingsuit.
Between 1998 and 2008 he sponsored world champions including Oliver Furrer, Marcus Heggli, Vivian Wegrath, Knut Krecker, Eric Fradet, Hollywood videographer Tom Sanders, Joe Jennings, and other competitive teams and base jumpers.
Working close with industry leaders and pioneers, Chuck brings a fresh perspective to the sport, a recent example is the co-development of the soon-to-be-released 'BRS' -a new safety feature for the skydiving industry.
And now...
Chuck is the Creative Director for the Da’Kine Rags Signature Series line for Tony Suits in Zephyrhills, Florida.
