Richard Novak Interview

Richard Novak Interview Thumb

You kids out there may not know the name but Richard Novak (and his partners Jay Shuirman and Doug Haut) literally created the skate industry that we know and love today. If it wasn’t for these guys pouring their blood, sweat and tears into the early days of 1970s-80s skateboarding—you might be holding a scooter right now. Inside of Rich’s brain is 40+ years of skateboarding’s entire history—take a peak behind the curtain and watch the interview!
