Here at Teva we have a lot to be thankful for: Water, waves, trails, snow, sun, soil and just about every natural element under the sun! We truly feel blessed to have turned our passions into our profession; in fact, you’d be hard pressed to find a line between our work and our personal lives. We love what we do, as do our athletes who shared similar sentiments and appreciation this season for friends, family and a life well-lived.
