Royal Trucks is part of Crailtap Distribution, which oversees the production and sales of Girl Skateboards, Chocolate Skateboards, Fourstar Clothing, Lakai Footwear, and Royal Trucks. Royal was started in 1999 by Rudy Johnson and Guy Mariano. Since then, Royal has steadily built up a reputation for dependability and developed a style synonymous with the rest of Crailtap’s brands. The loyalty and family connectedness of Royal Trucks appeals to most skateboarders because it remains true to one of the best parts about skateboarding: skating with your friends. And that’s all Royal Trucks and Crailtap companies are, a crew of friends who created a family of skate brands. It’s every skate crew’s dream.
