California-based skateboarding company Santa Cruz has been supporting skaters since 1973. Known as an epicenter for skate and surf culture, Santa Cruz is still a memorable brand for extreme sports enthusiasts today.

Santa Cruz skate decks are known for being outlandish, graphic and vibrant. To pay a tribute to days of 80s skate deck styles and their collaboration with Slasher magazine, Santa Cruz released re-issues of the 80’s Slasher, Keith Meek’s pro model, and the Rob Roskopp Target 1 deck. The eccentric skateboards feature stunning graphics done by illustrator Jim Phillips. The decks are offered in pink, green, yellow and black.

If you have a passion for the rich and lively history of skateboarding culture, then this series of decks by Santa Cruz is for you. Stats for Retro Skateboard Revivals Trending: Older & Average
