Santa Cruz's "Til the End" Premiere Photos

Santa Cruz skateboards has been around since 1973, when the skate industry was still in its infancy. The brand has sponsored hundreds of riders, many rising up through the ranks and becoming top-tier pro rippers. This latest offering from the ‘Cruz features a new crop of ams who’ve scoured the world on the Red Circle’s dime, searching out terrain to terrorize for this vid, proving yet again that Santa Cruz is down for skateboarding Til The End. But I got a feeling this is just the beginning for these new SC riders. —Joe Hammeke
