Santa Cruz Skateboards was founded in 1973 by Rich Novak, Doug Haut and Jay Shuirman. Santa Cruz also employed legendary artist Jim Phillips to create most of the brands early graphics, most notably their iconic "Screaming Hand" graphic. As one of the oldest skateboard brands in existence, Santa Cruz draws from a wealth of experience in skateboarding to bring you a range of top-quality boards. Along with their trademark line, Santa Cruz also offers a broad range of boards in varying shapes and sizes.
Support is what Kyle needs to keep progressing. Support can come in many forms, but for Kyle, what matters is the long-lasting and enduring type of support that comes from the skate community, and it’s this same kind of durable support that he’s modeled his new signature shoe after. Featuring the revolutionary Wafflecup construction that offers the support of a cupsole without sacrificing any of the grip or boardfeel of a traditional vulcanized shoe, the all-new Kyle Pro 2 also includes new enhanced sockliners that deliver superior cushioning and impact protection, and DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high wear areas for unrivaled durability. It is made with sturdy suede uppers and hook-and-loop closures.
