Founded in 1973, Santa Cruz is the oldest continually active hardgoods company in skateboarding, and their decks are responsible for catapulting countless skaters’ life-long obsessions. Of the numerous influential board designs, there are three that truly left an indelible mark in the ’80s when skateboarding was experiencing a crazy boom: Jeff Kendall’s ‘Pumpkin’; Corey O’Brien’s ‘Reaper’ (famously referenced by Neil Blender); and Eric Dressen’s ‘Roses.’ The brand has reissued these decks, with original concaves and specs, and are available now at the NHS Fun Factory site. Get nostalgic and grab one today! (Also available: Rob Roskopp ‘One.’)
