Santa Cruz Skateboards and Clothing returns bigger and brighter than ever this summer. The latest collection reminds us why it was one of the most prominent skate brands of the 80s with a tropical retro colour blend, bright enough to inspire the summer in anyone.
The brand was founded by surf/skate artist Jim Philips in 1973, who originally focused on surfboard graphics. Following the mainstream boom of skateboarding in the 70s, he changed direction and the fusion of these two surf and skate in Santa Cruz’s design remains evident.
Not for the faint hearted, Santa Cruz Skateboards and apparel celebrates skate culture with pride. Embrace its acid-bright California style and check out our latest hits from the brand below:
Santa Cruz T-Shirts: we’ve seen a few 80 California-inspired tees on the high street of late, but this is the first and best version we’ve seen from a brand with genuine CA 80s heritage. Santa Cruz cool at its finest.
Santa Cruz Board Shorts: Santa Cruz knows bright is best when it comes to boardies. Their tropical colour palette runs strong throughout this summer’s collection, so man up and embrace the pink, yellow and blue!
Santa Cruz Accessories: sticking with the colour cocktail, the latest Santa Cruz accessories are pretty fierce. A good way to add some retro cool to your wardrobe if you don’t want to go for full body brights.
Santa Cruz Skateboards: 2013 is all about the cruiser. These retro skateboards have got us dreaming of west-coast riding, all we need now is some California sunshine…
