Lenny Rivas Gets a Signature Board From H-Street

Published

on

If you would have told us 10 years ago that H-Street would be back in business in 2021, and Lenny Rivas would have a pro model for it, we likely would not have believed you. But here we are. The groundbreaking company from the late ‘80s made the announcement yesterday. And the boards should be available in the coming weeks.

Lenny Rivas grew up skating in National City, just south of San Diego, in the 90’s era of super progressive street skating and had a lengthy career, riding for some of the top companies in Southern California.

During his younger years, he taught himself math, artistic lettering. After watching Chad Muska draw on his griptape, like many skaters have, he started his on style of griptape lettering for himself and his homies and it became Lenster Grip, a custom griptape company.

Lenny skated all over So Cal, mostly in LA and all his local spots and parks around National City, like Memorial Park and the Chula Vista park.

At one point, he had a spoofie tribute graphic of Matt’s classic Street Swinger graphic for his Pro Model. So when Lenny showed up on H-Street, we thought that’d be a good start. We called up Bob Hickman for the task of creating a way better character for Lenny and we are stoked to introduce the first of two Pro Models for Lenny Rivas, who also drew the typestyle for the top logo.

Lenny’s first model is available to Pre-Order at the all new H-Street online store in four sizes. We should be shipping this in 4-6 weeks. Stand by for intel on Lenny’s other model in a day or two.

Wonder who will get on next?
