TRAVEL BACK TO THE 80'S WITH SANTA CRUZ
Ah, the ‘80s. Everybody was Wang Chunging. The Brat Pack ruled Hollywood. And skateboarding was on the rise. Santa Cruz has been around forever as a brand. In fact, they predate the ‘80s, having been founded in 1972. That makes them true old-school legends in skating, and also the oldest active hardgoods company out there. The ‘80s were a good time for Santa Cruz, and 2020 can be a good time for you thanks to some old-school board designs that have been re-released.
Santa Cruz has had many classic board designs, but the three they have brought back from the dead are among the most iconic. Eric Dressen’s “Roses” design, which is a real beauty, especially for the type of skater who is also a Grateful Dead fan. Next up is Jeff Kendall’s “Pumpkin,” which you can skate on even when it isn’t Halloween. And there is no look more metal and goth than Corey O’Brien’s “Reaper.” Lastly, there is Rob Roskopp’s “One.” It certainly is not least.
If you are in the mood for one of these retro board, why not buy one today? All the designs really stand the test of time. What’s old is new again. Just look at Rob Lowe. Dude hasn’t aged a day.
