Beginnings 2008, somewhere between the Whirling Dervish video, nightly skate sesh’s in my Laguna Beach neighborhood, and a morning shower the idea for Holesom came about. LBL was invited along for the ride and helped heaps. It took forever to prototype and produce, a solid 14 months, and in April of 2010 the first Street Sweepers were shipped. We sold 1000 of them by the end of the year.
Smell Yeah – By early 2011 we had 5 deck models and a warehouse full of bamboo sawdust. Making slide pucks was the furthest thing from my mind when, one day, I picked up a bar of surf wax, giving it the requisite sniff. I nose a good idea when I smells one, so 8 months testing 9 materials led to Holesom’s proprietary formula that changed the smell in our warehouse, and on your favorite hill, forever.
At the core of it all, our motto: Ride with smile and keep it Holesom, which is an inward steezyness rooted in gratitude, joy, and humility. – Holesom Rider
