About Zero Skateboards
Zero Skateboards is a skateboard company located in Carlsbad, California, United States (US). The brand was founded by professional skateboarder and entrepreneur Jamie Thomas, and distributed by his Black Box Distribution company. In late June, 2014, Thomas announced that the brand will be distributed by the Dwindle Distribution company, based in El Segundo, California, US.
The Zero brand was originally a clothing company, formed in 1996, and subsequently evolved into a skateboard company, with Thomas leaving Toy Machine to become Zero’s first professional team rider.
In early 2003, Thomas opened a plant in Tijuana, Mexico, named “Edieth and Osuna”, to manufacture the skateboard decks of the Black Box brands. Zero team rider Chris Cole was a shareholder of the company from 2011 to 2014.
The company has released seven videos, with the premiere of the latest release, Cold War, occurring on November 8, 2013. The premiere was held at the La Paloma theater in Encinitas, California, US and Thomas invited every Zero rider, former and current, onto the stage prior to the showing of the 40-minute video.
