Professional skateboarders Anthony Van Engelen and Jason Dill set off an industry-wide domino effect of professionals quitting their sponsors and starting their own board brands with their abrupt departure from their longtime board sponsor, Alien Workshop. The dynamic duo have recently begun making decks under Jason Dill's longtime F---ing Awesome clothing imprint, following the legendary brand Supreme's blueprint for small, limited and exclusive runs sold only at select skate shops. As expected, the brand was an instant hit.
