Encino Skateboarding is a local skateboard brand located in Las Vegas NV. The idea of Encino actually goes back 20 years in the outskirts of Mexico City, where I grew up. It was the name of the street me and my buddies used to skate. My best friend designed the leaf you see in our logo. Because Encino is a tree, and all the streets in our neighborhood were named after trees, it made sense to us at the time and was the foundation of our ideas. Those memories never went away and even though I moved to the United States years later, skateboarding and the idea of Encino stayed with me. After all these years I am finally able to embark on this journey. I want this brand to represent friendship, family, and good times. Through skateboarding I learned to overcome fears, and most importantly to never give up. That’s what I had growing up and that is why I want this brand to connect with people of all ages and walks of life. I appreciate the support and encouragement from family and friends through this process, and no matter which way this goes I'll never forget. With all that being said, the most important reason why I wanted to do this, is to give back to skateboarding and leave a mark. So if you're reading this all I ask of you is to believe in us, believe in yourself, and never give up. Thank you.
