SANTA CRUZ – ON A ROLL SINCE 1973
The oldest brand in the business! Over 45 years ago, Richard Novak, Doug Haut and Jay Shuirman founded Santa Cruz Skateboards. Little did they know, their brand would go on to shape the history of skateboarding and skate culture! For decades now, Santa Cruz has set the industry standard for premium skateboard decks, original artwork, and authentic streetwear.
ONLY THE BEST IS GOOD ENOUGH
A classic seven-ply deck made with premium 100% North American maple or a deck with the latest-and-greatest technology - which will you choose? You'll find both from Santa Cruz Skateboards!
The longer you slide, the more fun you have! Anyone who's skated an Everslick deck will confirm this is true. Everslick decks have a traditional seven-ply maple construction as well as a thin protective coating on the bottom of the deck. This coating provides effortlessly long slides on ledges and rails.
If it's more durability you're looking for, forget chipping up your nose and tail with a Powerply deck! These decks feature two plies of super-strength reinforcement material in the nose and tail. Not only does this increase the deck's resilience, it gives it stronger and longer lasting pop!
Some skaters require the best of the best - look no further than the Santa Cruz VX deck. Arguably the ultimate skateboard deck on the market, VX decks are constructed with five plies of maple and two plies of patented Quad-X technology. Stronger and thinner- VX decks are the next generation of skateboarding.
A HISTORY COMMITTED TO TRADITION
Whether it's their long list of legendary team riders or their iconic artwork that has become synonymous with skateboarding, Santa Cruz has undoubtedly shaped skate culture today. Lucky for us, Santa Cruz still produces many of their classic decks as reissues! So, keep an eye out for special reissue releases of your favorite old school boards - just like you used to skate back in the day! Many of the decks feature original artwork from famous Santa Cruz artist Jim Phillips, whose art not only shaped the Santa Cruz image, but skateboard graphics as a whole.
ICONIC STREETWEAR AND AMAZING COLLABS
The legendary Santa Cruz "Screaming Hand" and "Classic Dot" have been icons in the skateboarding community longer than most brands have been around! The Classic Dot was created in 1978 and the Screaming Hand in 1985, both by Jim Phillips. You will find this artwork on many Santa Cruz t-shirts, long sleeves, hoodies, sweatshirts, caps, socks, and of course, Santa Cruz skateboards! These classics are often reinterpreted by skateboard artists for new SC graphics or integrated into many of the special collaborations that Santa Cruz is known for.
