Vice President of NHS, Inc., Jeff Kendall is celebrated in Santa Cruz and beyond for his radical style and approach to skateboarding. He grew up in Indianapolis, where he discovered and embraced the sport in the late 70’s. Seeing more opportunity for growth and travel among the Northern California skate community, he made the decision to ride for Santa Cruz Skateboards (NHS) in 1985 and turned pro soon thereafter, competing on the circuit until 1992.
