Zero skateboards was founded in 1996 by the legendary pro skater Jamie Thomas. Zero earned a great reputation in skate culture, not least through outstanding videos like 'Dying to Live' and an incredible pro team. The famous 'Skull' logo is also an unmistakable trademark of the company from Carlsbad, California.
All decks are produced at the Dwindle Premium Woodshop according to the single deck press technique. This guarantees highest quality materials and a consistent performance from deck to deck due to the individual pressing. Decks with R7 construction are glued with epoxy resin instead of conventional water-based glue. This results in a lighter weight and features a better and longer lasting pop.
Zero came to life at a time when skateboarding was feeling slightly stiff and preppy. Founder Jamie Thomas wanted to cater to the underdog, bringing back the raw and powerful ruggedness of skateboarding. With some of the most influential skate videos to date and a whole new take on graphics, Zero made it to the top of the line at the turn of the century. With a pro team that puts most other brands to shame, Jamie Thomas has been able to continue building and expanding his dream.
