Chocolate Skateboards is brought to us under the influential wings of Girl Skateboards which has been running strong for two decades now. Rick Howard and Mike Caroll are said to have been motivated to bring a new company in given that they had to leave their close friend and legendary skateboarder Chico Brenes behind on a tour because he was unable to fit in the tour van. Chocolate was what came from that inspiration and has been a strong staple in skateboarding ever since. Chocolate started with some very heavy names and has continued with that theme with riders like Marc Johnson, Jerry Hsu, Raven Tershy, and original Chico Brenes. They still continue to create some of the greatest skateboarding videos we’ve all come to love and will continue to do so for many years to come. Chocolate has a very blocky and clean appeal while also doing some of the best panorama skateboard series that we have ever seen. This is a company brought to us by skateboarders, run by skateboarders, and driven by skateboarders. They have had their losses and team changes over the years but we here at Daddies believe that given their background, Chocolate is a company that’s here to stay until the end of skateboarding. Which we all know is not coming any time soon. Cheers to a real skateboard company.
