The Bob Hat was created in honor of Truckee Flannel Company's good friend Bobby Minghini. All proceeds from the sales of the Bob Hat will go to the Bobby Minghini Foundation which provides funding and support for youth snowboard teams, clubs, individual sponsorships and scholarships.
If you knew Bob you would know that the ear flap hat was just his style. It was designed specifically in orange because that was Bob's favorite color and the only color he could see (he was colorblind). GDB. With love.
Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die. Bobby Minghini was born in Snowshoe, West Virginia on June 24, 1986. He moved to South Lake Tahoe, California in 2004 to attend college and pursue his dream to become a professional snowboarder.
Bobby lived to ride. He was a long-time athlete on the ISTC and proudly represented his country as a member of the US Snowboarding Team. He co-founded and operated Tahoe Wakebusters with his brother, Jarod. He brightened everyone’s day with his winning smile and genuine love for people, especially children. Friends always joked that all we need is to “Rent-a-Bobby”.
He said, “If I die tomorrow, I’ve lived the best life ever.” Bobby hadn’t done it all, but everything was on his list. “If your dreams don’t scare you, you are not dreaming big enough.”
