Hardbody Skateboards Welcomes Geoff Rowley
New York City, NY - Hardbody Skateboards, a new skateboard company based in New York City, has announced the addition of Geoff Rowley to their team.
Rowley is a British professional skateboarder who is widely regarded as one of the most influential and iconic skaters of all time. He is known for his fearless and innovative style, as well as his signature trick, the darkslide.
Rowley was previously the founder and owner of Freedome Skateboards, a skateboard company that he launched in 2019. However, in September 2023, Rowley and his partners decided to shut down Freedome Skateboards, citing personal and financial reasons.
The closure of Freedome Skateboards was met with mixed reactions from the skateboarding community. Some skaters expressed their sadness and gratitude for Rowley's contribution to the skate culture, while others speculated about his future plans.
Now, Rowley has revealed his next move: joining Hardbody Skateboards, a promising new brand that was founded in 2022 by a group of New York skaters. Hardbody Skateboards aims to create high-quality skateboards and apparel that reflect the diversity and creativity of the New York skate scene.
Rowley said that he was excited to be part of Hardbody Skateboards, and that he felt a strong connection with the brand's vision and values. He also said that he was looking forward to exploring new spots and filming new footage with his new teammates.
