List of products by brand Santa Cruz
SANTA CRUZ is a mythical skateboard brand founded in 1973 in California, in the city of the same name.
For more than 40 years, the brand has been particularly known for its cult designs, including the famous "Screaming Hand" designed by Jim Philipps. Certainly one of the logos with the strongest image in all of skate culture.More
SANTA CRUZ has often made it possible to innovate to make skateboarding evolve. By creating its Road Rider Wheels in particular, equipped with precision ball bearings, which definitively changed the world of skateboarding and gave SANTA CRUZ the means to achieve its ambitions. First in slalom skateboards, then in trucks (Independent in 1978), SANTA CRUZ then invested in the creation of a new kind of deck, with concave, a first of its kind! The Team of Pro SANTA CRUZ skaters obviously becomes the reference with boys like Rob Roskopp, Jeff Grossso or JeFF Kendall.
But its immense notoriety with a large public, SANTA CRUZ owes it to a man: Jim Phillips. This genius graphic designer is the originator of most of the brand's designs and in particular the famous Screaming Hand, still used today, and known throughout the world. One cannot think of the drawings on the SANTA CRUZ skates without thinking of Jim Phillips whose history is inseparable from that of the Californian brand. It is also worth remembering that Phillips is also responsible for many illustrations in the world of skateboarding (Logo Independent Trucks for example), as well as incredible pieces of art.
Throughout its history, Santa Cruz has always been intimately linked to art, street art and many of their collaborations with artists like Johnny Mojo, or Nathan Carrico are today today considered as iconic objects, which go far beyond the borders of the skate universe.

Today more than ever, Santa Cruz is a must-have brand in the skate world, especially for its decks and its super original range of clothing! But it doesn't stop there.
Santa Cruz Skateboarding is also cruisers, wheels and complete skates in addition to t-shirts, caps, shorts, socks and other accessories. Santa Cruz offers a whole series of Old School boards, reissues of the legendary skates of the 80s, with Pro Models like the Natas Panther, the Roskopp Face, the Jessee Neptune or the Salba Witch Doctor.
The masterminds at Santa Cruz Skateboarding are paying homage to a band of legendary Team Riders that included names like Rob Roskopp, Eric Dressen, Natas Kaupas, Jeff Kendall, Jason Jessee and Christian Hosoi, pioneers in their genre.
The brand is now part of a large group, NHS, which distributes brands as essential as Creature skateboards, Independent Truck Company, Bronson Speed Co., or even Mob Grip! Just that !
Even for the uninitiated, the Santa Cruz logo necessarily evokes something, that is to say the influence of the brand over the years on skate culture, and pop culture in general...
