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.
They say that if you can measure it, you can improve it – and these guys measure everything. The NHS research & development department is responsible for the engineering side of wheels, decks, trucks, accessories, griptape, etc. Tim Piumarta and his crew put the “good” in hardgoods for the NHS family of brands, including Santa Cruz, Flip, Creature, Ricta, Independent, MOB Grip, Krux, OJ and more.

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.
Crispy like fried chicken on a Sunday afternoon. Paul from North Carolina did it up proper with a Zero deck, Indy Trucks, Ricta Wheels, Bones Bearings and you know you can always count on Skate Warehouse for some solid grip and bolts. Paul’s friends are sure to have some serious board envy, and to be honest I wanted to take it for a quick spin myself. Luckily for Paul I was satisfied to snap a few photos and send this Crispy on its way. Get stoked to shred, welcome to this week’s Crispy New New!
Jo from Arkansas is ready to rip. Jo picked out a fresh new complete that I hope stokes him out as much as it stoked us out. Featuring a Baker board, Ventures, Rictas, Bones and topped off with Mob x Thrasher grip and Skate Warehouse bolts, this board is as crispy as they come. Also boasting a classic aesthetic with an emphasis on function, there’s no suspicions about the rad factor of this complete. Build your next Crispy New New HERE!
