Godzilla has partnered with Santa Cruz Skateboards for a collection of skateboards, apparel and grip tape featuring reimagined artwork based on the originals by Jim Phillips.  

The limited-edition line will include eight skateboard deck designs, including an 11x 32-inch deck that is the largest skate deck Santa Cruz has ever made, complete with a unique texture resembling Godzilla’s skin. 

For the collaboration, Santa Cruz tapped artists to reimagine the classic graphics of Corey O’Brien, Tom Knox, Rob Roskopp and Natas Kaupas, based on the original artwork by Jim Phillips, in a variety of iconic styles inspired by iterations of Godzilla through the years, from Shin Godzilla to Mechagodzilla and more. 

The collection has a selection of apparel, including T-shirts, hats and hoodies, plus a sticker pack with the skate deck artwork in sticker form. The full product line will hit retail in November, in time to celebrate Godzilla’s 70th anniversary and Godzilla Day.
