Launching in March of this year with the bold tagline ‘no more corporate blues’, Quasi Skateboards began life as Mother. The idea for the company came after Alien Workshop’s shutdown the prior summer with the former Workshop riders and Sect member Chad Bowers taking a year off to before putting plans for the company in motion. The brand’s announcement surprisingly shut down frequent rumors of jumps to various other board companies from Gilbert Crockett, Jake Johnson and Tyler Bledsoe; despite all being spotted riding an assortment of Polar, F.A. and Krooked boards over the previous twelve months.
The initial run of Mother decks flew off skate shop walls prompting another two releases of the graphics in new colours. However, during these early days Bowers received a cease and desist letter from another company who had already trademarked the word ‘mother.’ Dismissing it, as the reality of trade marking such a commonly used word seems insane, the company was soon hit with a case of the corporate blues they had only just shed; choosing to change to company name rather than call it quits so soon. Discovering that no variation of ‘mother’ or ‘mom’ could be claimed either, after running it by the team, the name Quasi was settled on.
Jake Johnson is currently filming for a GX1000 project and Tyler Bledsoe is working on separate sections for both Fourstar Clothing along with a debut part for HUF Footwear. Quasi’s video debut came with a much anticipated solo part from Gilbert Crockett in October while Bowers has made it clear there are plans to work on a full video (likely including the new amateur members of the team joining Crockett, Johnson and Bledsoe at the time of writing). Keep an eye out for the latest offerings from Quasi at your local skate store.
