The Girl History
"Part of the reason why we launched Girl was so pro skateboarders would have a future. Take Royal, for instance. When Guy Mariano and Rudy Johnson's legs don't work anymore, at least what they've done for skateboarding and their ideas can continue with something they can fall back on. All the Girl Distribution companies are based around people who have helped Girl get to where it is today."

The Girl Skateboard Brand
Girl Skateboard is among the top brands in the skate industry. We stock a wide variety of Girl Skateboards and Girl apparel. The founding members of Girl Skateboards are Rick Howard and Mike Carroll and they created the brand in 1993 after leaving their previous company, Plan B Skateboards. They grabbed the opportunity to start their own brand and sought the help and talent of various pros in the industry to establish Girl Skateboards.
Originally, the company had lined up some serious talent by acquiring such pros like Guy Mariano, Jovontae Turner, Rudy Johnson, Tony Ferguson, Tim Gavin, Jeron Wilson and Sean Sheffey. Of course grabbing all the best performers in the skating industry and having them team up in one company caused a significant stir in the skateboarding industry because such a combo definitely made a powerful company.
In addition, to these pros, the founders also involved the Spike Jonze, now a renowned filmmaker in Hollywood, and Megan Baltimore in the running of the brand Girl Skateboards. Girl Skateboards became even more powerful and legit in 2003 with the addition of Brandon Biebel and Rick McCrank to the Girl brand team. Girl Skateboards later acquired more credibility in the industry by adding Jereme Rogers, Mike Mo Capaldi, Alex Olson and Sean Malto. These were renowned names in the skateboarding industry and they also added to the legibility of the company.
Evidently, Girl Skateboards has amerced a large team of legendary pro skaters. And the Girl brand has gone further and added to its brand Girl Skateboard Decks, which have become widely known in the market for their characteristic high level of input from various artistic forms. The Girl Skateboard Deck brand works closely with various nationally acclaimed artists like Kevin Lyons, Geoff McFetridge and Evan Hecox in its ‘Art Dump’ department to come up with highly inspired and appealing Girl Skateboard Decks.
The Girl Skateboard brand’s main goal is to give pro skaters a future and give them options for when things do not work normally as they used to. For example, it has given a future to Rudy Johnson and Guy Mariano who are unable to skate. Contributing to the Girl Skateboard brand through their ideas has given them something to fall back on.
