Hard Luck was started after a long time friend of Jason Jessee’s, Mark Gonzales, drew a skull with a pen and wrench on an envelope and told Jason he should turn it into a company.
In the beginning Hard Luck was exclusively available in Japan and offered as a wheel and clothing company. The company has since grown and is now available world-wide with the launch of the Hard Luck bearing line. They have assembled a team of the raddest and fastest dudes in skateboarding who were in need of a high performance bearing which could handle their caliber of skateboarding and would withstand all weather conditions. Hard Luck bearings are made for skateboarding (not car engines) by skateboarders. Come ride with Team Go Fast.
Team Go Fast consists of Jason Jessee, Sammy Baca, Wes Kremer, Figgy, Nick Trapasso, Scott Kane, Ronnie Sandoval, Nuge, Frecks, Picola, Jordan Taylor, Kenny Anderson, Fred Gall, Mark Gonzales, Slash, Alex Horn, Jon Dickson, Collin Provost, Raymond Molinar, Julian Davidson, Emmanuel Guzman, Jimmy Cao, Greyson Fletcher, Omar Salazar, Mike Anderson, Riley Hawk and Jake Johnson.
