Skateboarding has always been in a state of progression, which means skateboarders, people associated with it and the companies that are the staple of our scene must progress to, if they have any chance of surviving in the mish mash world that we find ourselves living in. It seems that there are brand new companies popping up almost every month or so, the current companies then battle for space and eventually push the older companies into the abyss and out of business. There are those companies which have been there and stood the test of time and been with skateboarding through thick and thin and now have firmly put their footprint into skateboarding history. Etnies was founded in 1986, originally as an offshoot of a French shoe manufacturer. It was called Etnics. It was Pierre André Senizergues, a skater from France, who, alongside Don Brown, a skater from England, took the brand to America. 30 years is a long time in anything, but as they say, the rest is history!
