Element Skateboards was established in 1992 by Johnny Schillereff, in California. Created with the intention of producing high-quality skateboard decks, skateboard wheels, hardware, and clothing inspired by the environment, art, culture, music, and skateboarding. Over the years a host of iconic names have been part of the Element Skateboards pro team, such as Nyjah Huston, Bam Margera, Ray Barbee, Chad Muska, and Mark Appleyard, Chad Tim Tim. The current crop of Element pros is just as impressive, with a line-up including, Jaako Ojanen, Brandon Westgate, Phil Zwijsen, Ethan Loy, Madars Apse, Nick Garcia, Tom Schaar, and Sascha Daley. In addition to Elements' contribution to skateboarding, the brand has always been socially active and community-minded, with initiatives including the Elemental Awareness Foundation and Conscious by Nature, as well as partnering with the Harold Hunter Foundation.
