During our recent excursion to Santa Cruz we got an inside look at the NHS Research & Development Lab led by none other than head skate scientist Tim Piumarta. If you haven’t seen or read Part 1 of this article, be sure to go back and check that out! Watch, read and learn how hardgoods are rigorously tested for Santa Cruz, Flip, Creature, Ricta, Independent, MOB Grip, Krux, OJ and the rest of the NHS brand family.
Skate Warehouse is pleased to briefly stock the Creature Rumble Series by Chris Burney. All decks and 1,000 puzzle pieces glimmer in the dark, bringing a little spookiness into a black world. Put your car insurance on layaway this month because this is a one time series and sure to be history soon. Only 500 of each of these boards were made.
If you haven’t heard of The Muscle Hamster yet, it’s time to open your ears. Chris Russell is gnarly, and at the ripe ol’ age of 17 you can be sure to expect big things from him in the future. You don’t get on Creature for no good reason. Style, power, speed and rad trick selection—this dude’s got it all. You can catch him crushing a backyard pool or destroying the big walls at your local park, just look out ’cause there ain’t no stopping Chris Russell, “American Psycho”!
Skate Warehouse took a trip to Santa Cruz, California to spend a day at the NHS Fun Factory, home to brands like Independent Trucks, Creature, Santa Cruz, Ricta, OJ Wheels and many more. We got a full tour of the warehouse and NHS skate museum, we watched mad skate scientists in the R&D lab, we saw tons of vintage product from years past and we even got a sit down interview with Jason Jesse and Emmanuel Guzman. It was a really good day.
This weeks Crispy New New comes via Alexander from Norway and it’s one crunchy cruiser.

With the combo of this rad shaped deck and some nice cushy wheels, Alex is gonna be cruisin’ in style on a real all terrain ripper. Set up your next Cripsy New New HERE!
This week’s Crispy New New is a bit more gooey than your average. With such a sick setup, Suzanne is gonna be slashin’ and thrashin’ in style. We’ve got a Creature Deck, Thunder Trucks, OJ Wheels, Diamond bearings, Mini Logo hardware and Skate Warehouse grip in full purple and green glory. Fiends, creeps, heshers, goons; lurk with us!
