Independent Clothing by KICKZ

Independent, or the Independent Tuck Company to give its full name has been producing skateboard parts and clothing since 1978. Based in Santa Cruz, California, the company originally began as its name would suggest manufacturing trucks for skateboards. At the time, it was the opinion of its four co-founders Richard Novak, Jay Shiurman, Fausto Vitello and Eric Swenson that there was a lack of quality in skateboard trucks and they sought to do something about this. The company has steadily grown over time and now offers Independent clothing, trucks, bearings, as well as other hardware and accessories.

Specialists loved by the pros

Just as the brand offers a quality and crucial component to the skateboard, Independent clothing has become an indispensable part of the skating world. The number of signed professionals is almost limitless with the company having had notable collaborations with huge names such as Andrew Reynolds, Eric Koston, Chris Haslam, and Geoff Rowley. Whilst the link may seem tenuous it was in fact Pope John Paul II who provided inspiration for the logo when he was featured on the front of Time magazine wearing the Alisee cross, which features front and centre on most Independent clothing. Raglan t-shirts are just one part of what Independent clothing has to offer at KICKZ so check it out for yourself today!
