History: G&S was set up by Larry Gordon and Floyd Smith in the 1950s. It was originally a company that made surfboards. Gordon and Smith agreed to migrate into skateboard products in the 1970s when the craze exploded. G&S manufactured the first foam core skateboards in 1975. As skateboarding increased in popularity and became mainstream, G&S sold 500 Fibreflex skateboards every day with a few months of back orders too. These overnight sensation skateboards continue to be a driving force today. With strong roots in the San Diego skate and surf scene, G&S has now turned their attention to designing longboards that are built to last and have a great ‘feel’. With wood cores of Aspen and Mahogany sandwiched between layers of fiberglass, their Fibreflex decks are a favorite among pros around the world including Dogtowner Steve Cathey.
