Accel. Moves to Giant Skateboard Distribution

16571 Gemini Lane
Huntington Beach, CA 92647

After seven years of free wheelin’ independence, we at Accel. have finally decided to settle down. I know it sounds sudden but when it’s right, it’s right, and this is so right that we’re moving in! I know, crazy huh? Sure it’ll be weird at first. I mean, you have to get used to their little quirks and stuff. But that’s the fun part right? Wait...this sounds weird. What I’m saying is that Accel. Wheels is moving in to Giant Skateboard Distribution.

It truly is a perfect fit for us. Accel. has always been dedicated to making the best possible products for skateboarders and to creating a team that feels more like a family than employees. We’ve also tried to remember that, above all, skateboarding is supposed to be fun. It just so happens that the fine folks at Giant believe in that same philosophy and want us to help them spread the word.

Making the move will be Brand Manager and ex-pro Jason Rothmeyer. Jason has been at Accel. since 2001 doing everything from sales and product development to team managing and marketing and has a great hold of the brand. Accompanying Jason will be longtime artist and pro team rider Stacy Lowery. Along with being one of the original riders of Accel., Stacy has been doing all of the artwork and catalog layouts for Accel. since day one.

In addition to a whole new line of wheels for the fall, in the following months you will be seeing new team riders coming (Chad TimTim, Evan Schiefelbine among others), expanded advertising and a fresh new look.

It’s good to be home.

Stacy Lowery, Danny Montoya, Chad Tim Tim, Kyle Berard, Kristian Svitak, Steffan Attardo, Jesse Fritsch, Charlie Wilkins, Anthony Furlong, and Jason Taylor (Jub).
Evan Scheiefelbine, Jake Duncombe, Rick Eusey, Steve Fauser, Willy Akers, Michael Tubbs, Scott Christiansen, John Rademacher, Kendal Cordova, and Josh Perkins.
