G&S was founded by Larry Gordon and Floyd Smith in the 1950s. Originally a surfboard company, Gordon and Smith agreed to expand into skateboarding products in the 1970s. G&S manufactured the first foam core skateboards for the market in 1975. As skateboarding exploded in popularity and became mainstream, G&S sold 500 Fibreflex skateboards per day with six months worth of back orders. G&S is no one-hit wonder, however--these overnight sensations continue to be a driving force to this day! With strong roots in the San Diego skate and surf scene, G&S has turned their attention to designing longboards that are fun and built to last! Are you passionate about longboarding or interested in trying? Look no further than G&S longboard decks! With wood cores of Aspen and Mahogany sandwiched between layers of fiberglass, their Fibreflex decks are a favorite among pros around the world. Even skaters that rode on their models back in the 70s still choose G&S to this day. These longboard decks are lightweight, extremely flexible, and very responsive. They can withstand the toughest abuse and ride smoothly over any surface. They’re not the longest longboards in the market, which makes them easy to carry around. G&S decks also have an adjustable base to move your skateboard trucks and to increase or decrease the flexibility. You are going to love the balance and control you have on these decks, whether you’re cruising downhill or cutting tight turns. Make G&S your brand and watch your riding reach new levels!

A tribute Riley Hawk deck to his father Tony Hawk aka The Legend Baker Skateboards is an American skateboarding company founded in 1999 by professional skateboarder Andrew Reynolds. The company's main products are skateboard decks, soft goods, accessories, and wheels. In 1999 Reynolds left Birdhouse Skateboards and started Baker Skateboards along with other professional skateboarders from Stereo, Zero, and other companies.In 2007, Reynolds provided a detailed account of the company's beginnings:
Well, I was living in Huntington, riding for Birdhouse. We just thought to ourselves, all these companies are really lame. Like, Birdhouse doesn't promote piles, you know what I mean? Like, Zero's [skateboard deck brand] not promoting, like, what we're all about. You know, we met up with Jay Strickland, we started telling him about our ideas, like, "We wanna do something. We wanna do a company." And we're, like, "All of us, together.", you know? It was just, like, a big mess, you know? I went and talked to Tony [Hawk] and Per [Welinder]—"It's either, I quit, and take a bunch of guys and do something, or, you guys help me start a company, you know?"The skateboard deck brand signed a distribution deal with Blitz Distribution, the company that, at the time, was distributing Birdhouse and other brands, such as Fury and Hook-Ups (Blitz had originally been formed by Per Welinder and Hawk to distribute their own products). As of 2008, the brand was the top-selling brand under the Blitz Distribution umbrella. In regard to the original Baker logo, Reynolds has credited the design to Strickland and stated that it represented a motley company that consisted of talented skateboarders. For more go Google it
