Top street skateboarder and U.S. Olympian Nyjah Huston famously rides his own custom-shaped board, originally created by Huston and legendary boardsmith Paul Schmitt. For years, skateboarders have asked Huston how they can get their hands on Huston’s preferred board shape—and now, with the launch of Huston’s own brand, Disorder Skateboards, they finally can.
Disorder Skateboards is meant to invoke the expressive, individualistic and rebellious nature of skateboarding. “As skateboarders, we’ve always been rebels,” Huston wrote on Instagram. “We see life and our surroundings in a different way.” Huston aptly named his brand after the individualistic and rebellious nature of skateboarding. “Skateboarding has been my life for as long as I can remember,” Huston said in a press release. “I’ve always had a dream of starting my own brand and the time has finally come.”
Huston, 26, had ridden for Element Skateboards when he was an amateur skateboarder—the company became his first sponsor in 2007—and returned to the team as a pro in January 2011. In January 2021, he announced on Instagram that he and the company were parting ways and that “new beginnings are in the works.” That led to months of speculation surrounding which company Huston would ride for prior to him announcing Disorder in late June of 2021. Huston actually launched Disorder Skateboards on June 25 with the “Apocalypse” graphic—and the boards were fully sold out within two hours of the launch.
Disorder Skateboards makes decks in four different sizes: 8”, 8.125”, 8.25” and 8.5”. Given the technical nature of his riding, it’s no surprise Huston comes down on the narrower end of the spectrum, riding an 8.125”, which he prefers for the balance between being light but also substantial enough for riding big rails.
The success of the brand has been wild, every restock so far selling out within minutes. Huston will be keeping fans posted on future restocks and drops on his Instagram. Reports Hypebeast & Forbes
