Santa Cruz Skateboards is one of the one of the most recognised brands in skateboarding. The company was founded back in 1973 in California by Jay Shuirman, Rich Novak and Doug Haut with artist Jim Philips onboard who created some of their iconic logos and graphics like the ‘Screaming Hand’. Santa Cruz is possibly one of few skateboard brands that has never really gone away, with a strong team of new and veteran skaters they are one of the foundations of skateboarding.
Santa Cruz Skateboards have been around since 1973. A staple in skateboard shops all around the world for over 40 years, their Screaming Hand and Classic Dot logo's are instantly recognisable. In recent years they have produced some great limited collaboration projects with the likes of Star Wars, The Simpsons, and Stranger Things. They also produce limted runs of reissue old skool skateboards from their back catalogue a few times a year. Look out for those and grab one while you can as they are limited!
