During our tour of NHS Distribution we had the pleasure of interviewing the man, the myth, the legend himself, Jason Jessee. We talked skateboarding history, Jack Kerouac, naked celebrities, Converse and more. Check it out!
We had the chance to sit down with Emmanuel Guzman for a quick list of questions. We talked Santa Cruz Skateboards history, new upcoming board graphics and what it’s like to go from Local to Am to Pro in your own hometown. Check it out!
As part of our recent road trip to NHS Distribution we got a full walkthrough of the NHS Skate Museum and were guided by none other than CEO/President and former pro skateboarder, Bob Denike. There is so much history and so many artifacts on the walls of the NHS Skate Museum that even with all the informative captions and old school footage, you’re going to want a guide through this place—and Bob is the best!

We recently drove up to Santa Cruz, CA for a full tour of the NHS Distribution facility. This video is the first section of that tour, featuring longtime NHS graphics master Dave Freil. Dave demonstrated much of the printing process for skate graphics and talked about the evolution from original hand-printed screening to contemporary heat transfers and more. If you’re into skate art culture, this video will stoke you out!
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.
Steve Olson, Natas Kaupas and Lance Mountain were inducted into the Skateboarding Hall of Fame earlier this year. Each of these skaters has had a particularly strong impact on what skateboarding is today and things just wouldn’t be the same without them. NHS Distribution recently released a set of highly limited Hall of Fame Decks in their honor. Take a look at the Flip Lance Mountain, Designarium Natas Kaupas and Santa Cruz Steve Olson Hall of Fame decks and pick up your piece of skate history today!
