Soon after Van Engelen and Dill announced they were leaving Alien Workshop, the most well-known openly tall skateboarder, Brian Anderson, parted ways with previous sponsor Girl Skateboards, to try something new. Partnering with ex-Habitat team rider Austyn Gillette, Anderson's 3D Skateboards is a collection of products that reflect Anderson's visual aesthetic and sense of humor. Keeping it all in the family, 3D Skateboards are distributed by Anderson's old roommate and friend, skateboarder Brad Staba, and Big Time Distribution. As Anderson hinted at in his exclusive ESPN Face Time interview, 2014 promises to add a few new faces to the 3D fold.
