WHO

TONIC Supply Co was founded by Mark Rothwell, a graphic designer and ex 90’s pro snowboarder from Scotland, in 2020 during the global lockdown. Fueled by his lifelong passion for board sports and adventure, the lockdown provided the perfect timing for fulfilling a creative dream that has been years in the making. After all, right now more than ever, everyone’s in need of some TONIC!

One day, two friends turned up at a local BMX Halfpipe bearing new four wheeled, wooden toys, covered in skull stickers, from a state side trip to Delmar skate ranch-and his love of skating was born. The freedom, attitude and creativity that came with being a fully committed sideways cowboy left the regimented evolution of BMX in the dust. The obsession was transferred from 2 wheels to 4 and he lived and breathed skate culture from that day on.

Then, in the winter of ’88, a good friend lent him a snowboard to try at Glenshee ski resort and he never looked back! He spent the next 4 years throwing himself down the side of an icy unforgiving mountain on a wooden plank with no flex, no give, trying to replicate skate tricks in the snow. Despite the pain, duct-taped equipment, and poor conditions, he still couldn’t get enough. His love for BMX and skateboards never waned, but they took a backseat to this weird and wonderful new world of snowboarding.

TODAY

Today, Mark’s passion for skating, surfing, snowboarding and adventure are ever present; he still skates/snowboards/surfs whenever he can; escaping in his T4 camper van to the coast with his girlfriend when there’s waves or to the mountains when it’s dumping. Anywhere else there's an adventure to be shared he’s in. He’ll never stop riding for the pure love of it, just for fun and for the feeling it gives – it’s his TONIC. 

You can’t, you won’t and you don’t stop…
