About Crayon Skateboards
Matthew ‘Dykie’ Ryan
Right, it’s been almost 4 years now since we started this thing, so far so good! We’ve got a proper good team including 3 Pros now, some cool web edits, boards that I am very proud of and hopefully a video coming soon. Here’s a couple of people that have helped out the most so far…
I have known Nat for a long time now, my earliest and fondest memories of him are skating the blocks in Cardiff many years ago doing crazy combo tricks that really shocked me. I don’t know why he ain’t in my early welsh vids but I wish he was.
These days he can found working incredibly hard on Independent & Santa Cruz lines and his other recent work off the top of my head can be found in Kill City, Sleep when you’re Dead and Globe including Pritchard’s shoe which a few years back was Globe’s best selling shoe.
My working relationship with Nat started with the underexposed videos and he has been here with me at Crayon since the start, designing the Logo and the very first board and has always been looking over my shoulder with some friendly advice, so thanks mate! You’ll be seeing some good lines from Nat with Crayon in the very near future.
Original webmaster, Videographer and Editor
I’ve only known Nick since the start of Crayon, I was looking for someone to put the original site together and can’t remember how Nick was there but he got on it and I’m very glad he did. He has also been by my side the whole way working on some cool tour edits and now progressed into very professional done HD edits and generally just helped me out when I’ve been stuck; good work Nick!
Philip Morgan - illustrator, deck designer
A good friend for many years from skating, Phill entered our deck competition a couple of years back (being new to the art world). Although he did not win, his entry had lots of attention and we later decided to have the deck produced. It was so successful we then put it into Crayon’s first artist series of decks, ‘The Wilderness Series’ and later put his famous boxman character onto a Crayon deck. Phill has been a great help all round with Crayon producing posters and postcard artwork also.
Tom Hobson - deck designer
Tom is an amazing skater and amazing artist and is an original member of CSC which made the perfect choice of person for Crayon’s first artist series (the Lumberjack board still being one of my favourites so far and always get tempted to re-issue it).
