Considering he’s one of the most recognizable skateboarders on the planet, a Muska board company is long overdue. Earlier today, Chad teased a new project via Instagram that we can collectively be excited about. Given his creativity and legacy, Muska Skateboards has the potential to be something great. Check the first tease below.
UPDATE 08.06.20: Muska’s first drop goes live at midnight PST, and looks to be the start of something good. Get some if you can.

Tonight the journey begins. – 12:00am PST / LINK WILL BE IN BIO – One hundred hand signed MUSKA SKATEBOARDS – SIZES – 8 + 8.25 – Fully dipped white then tail dipped red. – $99.99 – US / CANADA ONLY FOR FIRST DROP (working on rest of world asap like Rocky) – This is a small start, but I promise there are some great things coming soon, I have the vision. – I want to thank every single person who has ever supported me over the years, I have learned so much about business, marketing and creativity through a unique perspective and I look forward to applying this knowledge to my first completely independent project. – Although MUSKA SKATEBOARDS is the name of this first release, I want to say from the beginning that as of now it will not have a traditional “team” like in the past, it will mainly be an outlet for whatever I can imagine. Clothing, Art, Video, whatever. – No limitations, no holding on to things that are not working, time to rethink, rebuild, connect and unify our skateboarding and street wear community globally, celebrate our differences, do not allow them to divide us, the future is up to us, I see a better one, I know that this is just an idea, but ideas can go a long way with a lot of effort! – Enough rambling, I have to finish this website!!! – P.S. I want to thank @professorschmitt and @tinyavenger72 for making these beautiful boards come to life!!! They skate as good as they look but not sure how many will skate this first batch? – Thank you to @chrizlee3000 for the skilled illustrator work! Also for always keeping my dreams alive via social media! I appreciate all your dedication to skateboarding and my era. – I also want to thank @chrispastras and @primewood.la for initially giving me the courage to drop some boards a few years ago. – Shout out to @brooklyndom1 and @brooklynprojects for always having my back and also being a big encouragement for me to do this. – So many people to thank I’ll get to you in another post! But also @jamiethomas is going to be bringing me boxes and packing this order personally with me for you guys! 🤣 – It doesn’t get any really than this! – MAJOR SHOUT OUT TO @shortysskateboards for the blessings on this!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Nothing is something because it is a place to start! – Come on computer Muska!!! You can build this website!!! You can put out products on your own!!! You don’t need a middleman that takes it all!!! You can design everything!!! You can create the marketing assets!!! Photography, Video, Editing, Graphic Design, Sound Design!!! You can do all these things yourself!!! You can build manufacturing and logistical relationships, you can rethink every business step you ever made leading up to this point and design this business accordingly. You can be afraid of failure, but don’t stop. You can do this, I believe in you. – THIS MORNINGS MESSAGE TO MYSELF!!! – Hopefully good news tomorrow morning if all goes as planned!!! – Doing this solo, just like I build my walls!!! But have already had @jamiethomas giving me some great guidance, encouragement and help on this venture! – 30 some years in the making! I will finally release my first completely independent project. More info to come tomorrow.
