In 2010, “FB Agency“ was born, a multibrand agency created by Jochen Botte (former, CEO O’Neill Belgium/France) en Mario Fagel (former, Sales-Manager O’Neill Belgium/France).
We succesfully started representing Dakine as mainbrand, and Brunotti on concultancy base in the Belux. Due to our extended network and after 2 succesfull years we expanded to the Benelux and added Holland, Werner van Zomeren (former, Sales-Manager O'Neill Nederland) represented "Fb Agency" in the Dutch market. In 2012 we became “Dakine BeNeLux“. Another 2 years later, 2014, Brunotti finally jumped the leap and joined our ranks! A no brainer deal and great add value for “FB Agency“!
2015, was the year to move-on and move to our brandnew 600m2 showroom in Melle.
Since then "Fb Agency" is on the roll, so other brands started knocking on our door! Brands such as Nomad (a renomated technical outdoor brand), Van One (the original Volkswagen clothing label) and Dita (worlds oldest hockey brand) are/were under our wings!
As markets shift, brands will always come and go (Dita), and they will create new opportunities!
In 2020, after a long time gone, we are back where it all started! O’Neill has joined our line up again...!
There’s no place like home...
FB Agency proves that “being actual present” as a brand in these times, small markets as Benelux can lead to revenue retention and even volume increase... For example, Dakine “Benelux” is ranked 3rd on the European market, due to our presence, professional approach and appealing showroom!
"The warm welcome in the spacious showroom
creates a positive mood."
"The personal contact, tailored product advice
and relaxed vibe is crucial."
"Professionals, with a heart."
"FB Agency, a long-term relationship."

A history of innovation.
Founded in Hawaii in 1979, by Rob Kaplan and now located at the base of Mt. Hood in Hood River, Oregon. Dakine builds high quality backpacks, travel bags, accessories, outerwear and clothing for people who love to surf, snowboard, skateboard, mountain bike, ski, windsurf, kiteboard and travel. There are plenty of problems that waste precious mountain or water time right now. And the best way to find them is to get out on the mountain and in the water yourself. Live it. Build it. Test it. Improve it... Then do it all over again next season. We are Dakine.
No matter the conditions. We are ready!
1979, Italian windsurfer Claudio Brunotti started his own shaperoom in Scheveningen, Holland, after being infected by the great surfing conditions.
