With his step up from amateur ripper to the pro ranks with Santa Cruz, there’s been no shortage of Josh Borden coverage recently. Josh skates with speed, style and power and rips transition of any size with ease. Don’t let his tranny prowess fool you though, Borden is a true all-terrain shredder. Streets, ditches, backyard ramps… You would be hard pressed to find a spot Josh Borden shy’s away from. Congrats Josh! The pro board is well-deserved. Sit back and behold, Josh Borden Born-N-Bred.
If you ain’t backin’ Freddy, I ain’t backin’ you! Fred Gall is a real OG in the game and a living legend to those who know. Always found with a smile and a positive outlook, all skaters should be like Freddy. Get hyped then go buy Freddy’s OJ Wheels!
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 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 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!
