About Us

A Long Proud Tradition
Kurt and Sue Larsen established Larsen Sails in Santa Cruz, California, in 1972 and changed the name of the company to Larsens Inc. in 2009. Throughout the company’s history, the Larsens have based their success on innovation and service. All of us at Larsens pride ourselves on building long-term relationships with each of our customers. And we’ve brought to those customers a wealth of innovation. We spearheaded the development of printable, fire retardant fabrics, and we were the first to offer canopies with graphics printed directly onto the canopy fabric. We even introduced quick set rafters with spinnaker ends. The innovations the Larsens introduced have made mobile canopies lighter, stronger, fire retardant, printable and much easier to use.
