Yvon Chouinard was born on November 9, 1938 in Lewiston Maine. From Spain, his family moved to Southern California where his passion for rock climbing started to emanate. Later on, he founded the Southern California Falconry Club. His quest for falcon aeries significantly aroused his passion for rock climbing. So as to save lots of money for his hobby, he became a blacksmith to make his own rock climbing tools.

After buying a second-hand coal-fired forge in 1957, he started manufacturing hardened steel-pitons which became a massive success down the road. This resulted in the founding of Chouinard Equipment, Ltd. After decades of being in the business, Yvon Chouinard held for bankruptcy. The hard assets of the business were eventually got by the workers and employers. Later, Chouinard Equipment, Ltd was re established as Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd. Chouinard is also known in garments and clothing sector. Patagonia, his second company, is known for its broad choice of hardy technical clothing. The company started doing so nicely that he established a tithing system inside the organization that will go towards environmental activism. Collectively, the couple has a daughter named Claire, and son, Fletcher.
