TEAM Lakai is proud to be endorsed by some of the skate world’s most legendary athletes. Comprised of skateboarders from all over the world and every corner of the sport, our team of pros and amateurs represents Lakai’s commitment to creating skate gear that’s unique and designed for real skaters. The members of this crew have helped us create standout styles, like the shoes developed for Vincent Alvarez’s fast, aggressive skate style (see: Atlantic). Each product in our lineup was inspired, tested and approved by some of the best riders in the world. Our company was founded in Los Angeles back in 1999 by skateboarders Rick Howard and Mike Carroll. Now, the Lakai team is professionally represented by pro skaters Vincent Alvarez, Stevie Perez, Riley Hawk, Simon Bannerot, Tyler Pacheco and Yonnie Cruz as well as amateurs Griffin Gass, Jimmy Wilkins, Cody Chapman, James Capps and Nico Hiraga. These boundary-pushing riders wear Lakai on the street, in competition and in our epic skate videos. Whether you’re in search of time-honored classics or something inspired by our team riders you’ll find it at Lakai.
