Earthwing Skateboards started in the mid 90’s while founder Brian Petrie worked at PSNY Skateshop in 6th and west 4th in NYC. The idea started by shaping broken shop snowboards into little slalom, sprinting, and carving decks. He wanted more options and styles and more than just wood. Brian’s war was on. his first Earthwing was made in April of 1998. It was a carver wrapped in s-glass, Baltic birch top and bottom veneers, v-lam balsa core, and even some thin woven stainless steel fabric of all things.
Through the years, Brian researched, executed, refined, built, and collected more tools, designed tools and presses etc… He ended up turning his tiny Brooklyn apartment into a small working factory and spent all his money on skateboard production. It was bananas in there. D.I.Y If you want it bad enough, you will figure it out. Whatever works.
That ethos and all the blood, sweat, and beers that went into the Earthwing of old, has now been revitalized with new, younger blood. Taking the reigns from Brian out East, Californian David Townsend, has brought the heart of Earthwing to SoCal and is mixing the old with the new. Still D.I.Y., still Skater or Die. Earthwing remains true to its roots, but is ready to take on new life for the future.
