Creature Skateboards

Creature Skateboards was originally created in 1993 by visionary Russ Pope and NHS artist Johnny Mojo. The idea of the brand was simple, with an image steeped in horror films and racy imagery, they presented themselves as the "Darker side of skateboarding." The original incarnation of Creature lasted until roughly 1999 when the team and infrastructure disbanded and the brand was extinguished. Fast forward to 2005 when then Santa Cruz art director Lee Charron and original Creature team rider Darren Navarrette made a plan to resurrect the brand. The original ideals of the brand remained the same and Creature offered the skateboard industry a much needed dose of dark ideas and imagery. Original team riders Al Partanen and Sam Hitz also came along for the ride, rounding out what would be known as the "Hesh Crew." Today Creature has progressed into one of the largest skateboarding brands in the world.


Balancing the veterans on the team, Creature added pros David Gravette, Taylor Bingaman, Stu Graham, and a cast of younger fiends that have continued to push the ideals of Creature forward. Working with some of the most cutting-edge artists, both visually and musically, Creature has constantly redefined itself as a taste maker for true skateboard enthusiasts. In most cases when Creature has been asked to define itself, Creature tells a story of a group of cavemen that were frozen in ice and later thawed out to create a horde of skateboard maniacs that leave a trail of their signature black and neon green in their wake. Well, most of that is true... minus the caveman part. After surpassing Creature’s original stint, the brand is stronger than ever, with four full length videos under its belt, and a strong base of adamant fans, there’s no sign of Creature slowing down.
