Santa Cruz Skateboards and Cruzers. Dig deep into the history of skateboarding and Santa Cruz™ skateboards was there. In the '70s, it was born from a simple idea to manufacture boards for the up-and-coming skateboard craze that was sweeping surf-starved communities across the coasts. In 1974, Jim Phillips, now a legend of the skate industry, joined the ranks and created the basic graphics that would adorn Santa Cruz boards for decades to come.
In the '80s and '90s, Santa Cruz began to produce legendary boards, designs that would help usher in a new wave of popularity for skateboarding. In 1985, Phillips drew the Screaming Hand, which not only became an iconic Santa Cruz image, but an image that would become nearly synonymous with the entire skateboard industry. To this day, the Screaming Hand can be found on Santa Cruz decks, nearly untouched from when it was first created.
