The GLOBE Skateboarding company was founded in Australia in 1985 in the city of Melbourne, by the Hill brothers.
Former skateboarding champions Peter and Stephen Hill, along with their brother Matt, created the Hardcore brand in the 80s to fill the lack of quality boards they needed for their personal use.
Very involved in skate culture, they import US brands to Australia, organize Tours, contests and shoot videos. Quickly, Hardcore became very popular in their native land and in New Zealand and the Hill brothers embarked on the business of wear with the company Die Hard which would later become Globe International's Streetwear Division.
Recognized as one of the most influential companies in youth streetwear, Globe moved to the USA in 1995 to blend into the American skate subculture.
In the 2000s, Globe acquired Dwindle distribution (founded by Rodney Mullen) thus bringing together in the same group brands as famous as Enjoi, Blind or Tensor. Globe International becomes for the occasion one of the largest skateboard companies with products covering the entire range, from boards to accessories, and clothing to shoes.
GLOBE moved to Europe in 2003, to Hossegor. The brand has its own production plant and retains Rodney Mullen who collaborates closely in the development of new products.
If the company parts ways with Dwindle in 2019 (Almost, Blind, Dusters), Globe Int. continues its development in the following years by acquiring brands like Cliché or Salty Crew or by creating Impala. The brand is also taking the longboard and cruiser bandwagon perfectly by launching a wide range of complete boards for beginners and progressers.
Throughout its history, the Team Globe has counted among the most influential skaters of all time such as Rodney Mullen, David Gonzales, Mark Appleyard or more recently the Frenchman Vincent Millou.Less
