2. How was Stoned Skateboarding born? How did you start?

I started Stoned Skateboarding 4/20/2017, that’s right 4/20! The perfect date to launch the brand ๐Ÿ™‚
The idea came up when I was 35 years old. I have been skating since I was around 12 years old. When getting older and having 2 beautiful kids, I felt it was hard to keep up with skateboarding, less time and more injuries. I really wanted to stay connected to the scene.. so I decided to start my own skateboard brand. Iโ€™ve also been an MC for over 20 years and rapped a lot about the cannabis culture.
This was the perfect way to merge those 2 together. Stoned Skateboarding was born!
The brand started out really small, I ordered 2 designs 30 boards each. Putting a small team together was the next thing I did.. I actually couldn’t afford it, but that was the only way to do it the right. Times were hard but eventually a few skate shops ordered some boards and started selling the brand. I was really stoked and never stopped the hustle.
I always liked brands that bring out different drops a year, that’s the reason why I’m dropping new designs every 3/4 months. I feel it’s a fun way to keep my customers excited for what’s coming up next.
I specialize in hardware (skateboards) but every now and then I drop some apparel. It’s dope to see my riders ride in some stoned clothing ๐Ÿ™‚

3. What makes Stoned Skateboarding different? Can you explain your products with details?

The boards I sell are always fun, lot’s of colors and happy vibes! I remember being a kid and stepping in my first Skateshop, it was like a candy store for me! I want people to experience that vibe when they check out my boards. I also drop teamboards specially made for the team. I dream about getting recognition from skaters all around the world. The more the brand grows, the more skaters I can support and sponsor. I do it for the culture , I want to give back to the thing that made me who I am today! Skateboarding saved my life, the only place where I felt home as a little kiddo ๐Ÿ™‚
Seeing my riders skate my boards just gives me the best feeling, when they drop a part I’m proud! I love every skater in my team, it’s all about them and that’s where I get my energy from ๐Ÿ™‚
Our skateboards are 100% maple wood for the best quality and pop!
The prints are digitally printed on heat transfer sheets, they get pressed with a heat transfer machine on the boards.
We also have a topprint on all our boards , which has become a standard/recognition for the brand.

4. What reactions do you get from your clients? Do they love your products?

I have been running the brand for 4 years now, I gained over 15000 followers on instagram.
The customers are stoked, they appreciate the extra love I put into the brand!
I give free stickers & griptape with every order, I also repost customers pics (when they tag me) in my stories!
I also try to communicate as much as I can with my customers, I answer dmโ€™s and help the scene everywhere I can help.

5. What are the advantages of Stoned Skateboarding?

Everything goes back to the skaters, the more the brand grows.. the more skaters I can help and sponsor!
