Veteran - Owned, Gold Star - Employed
DJ grew up skateboarding locally and had plans to move to California to turn Pro.... After September 11th, he decided he needed to join the military at 17. He graduated high school a year early and joined the next month. Due to his aggressive skating style and the profession he chose in the military, DJ was forced to hang up his skateboard for the rest of his career for risk of being injured and possibly missing a deployment.
As retirement was rapidly approaching, DJ thought it was time to get back to his roots and refocus his passion on what he loves... skateboarding, art, an aggressive, active lifestyle, and last but not least, supporting veteran and Gold Star families. In the last 3.5 years, DJ and Cole have been able to combine these passions and create a successful company entirely employed by Gold Star family members. The crew also works with other non-profits who support Gold Star families and veterans transitioning out of the military.
From selling cool merch and amazing one of a kind custom skateboards made in the U.S.A, we are able to support and give back to our community in a handful of ways.
