Kyle Jensen's Skateboarding prowess and selfless loyalty to our crew is the physical embodiment of the Seven fold Movement. To celebrate the great day that gave birth to our man Kyle, we have released his What?! part on itunes.
Chris Opilla, owner of Seven Fold Skateboards has come a long way since first earning his graphic design degree in 1999. After playing around with shirt designs and such for a few years until a few crew members starting asking about decks. Chris then looked around at a bunch of manufacturers and settled on a great wood factory in the Southeast who had made decks for a friend. In 2004, Chris moved to LA, and I ended up taking a job with Element Skateboards which “took up a ton of time. I kept involved with the team and consulted with my former partner while I was living the corpo life at element.” Seven Fold put out our first full length dvd in 2005 called, what?!, which was a killer video from what I saw in the promo. “About a year ago things started going real sour at Element real quick, a bunch of my close friends got fired or quit,” so Chris left back to the East Coast to start up Seven Fold Skateboards again. “It’s been an amazing 6 months, and the company has already turned around so quick and we are making a new promo video to drop soon, and working on a full length for 2009. We are expanding our clothing line and keeping it all made here in the USA.”
