“I feel incredibly blessed to remain immersed in my deepest passion at this stage in my life, with my family by my side,” says Schillereff. “My calling has always been to mentor, inspire and empower the youth through skateboarding and art. We are excited and proud to be expanding our reach to make skateboarding more inclusive, affordable and accessible - and get as many quality complete skateboards under kids’ feet as possible. By doing so, we increase the ability to nurture our team, grow skateboarding participation and give skateboarding to kids in need. More kids on skateboards indisputably sparks prosperity for our industry at large and all skateboarders alike. ‘Give Skateboarding’ is more than our mantra, it is our call to action.”
The collection will start with a limited-edition release available for presale, onlyonline. Each skateboard ships in a customized box with official Heart of Gold membership certificate of authenticity, autographed by skateboarding Olympians Jagger Eaton, Heimana Reynolds and Schillereff.
Additionally, The Heart Supply will be opening their first philanthropic skate-park in the town of Xala, on the central coast of Mexico this summer.
“We are proud to partner with Johnny and The Heart Supply to bring this great collection of quality complete boards with Pro and Team graphics,” says Craig Drobis, senior vice president, marketing, Jakks Pacific. “The Heart Supply mission comes with the amazing philanthropic mission of #giveskateboarding and the vision to make skateboarding more inclusive and accessible. Jakks Pacific cannot wait to be a part of the movement to get more skateboards under kid’s feet.”
The Heart Supply complete skateboards line will launch this July, with special edition board drops exclusively online.
