Brand-X-Toxic Skateboards



From the Brand-X-Toxic website: "Founded in the early 1970s by Dorsey Truitt, Atlantic Skates was the world’s first skateboard distributor and supplier. In 1981, Atlantic Skates expanded into manufacturing for Kryptonics, establishing the High Energy Skateboards brand. Next, in 1986, Dorsey purchased Brand-X Skateboards from Bernie Tostenson. And, in 1988, Dorsey created Toxic Skates as a spin-off of the demo skate group, ‘Team Toxic‘ created by Norm Hamilton. Under Dorsey’s leadership and with the global manufacturing and distribution power of Atlantic Skates; Toxic, Brand-X and High Energy became major, global brands, and Atlantic Skates remained the largest skateboarding products distributor on the planet, through the 1990s. 30 years later, Dorsey’s son Patrick brought back Toxic, Brand-X, and High Energy under his company, Brand-X-Toxic Skateboards. Together with his partner Amy, they are revitalizing these much-loved global brands, using the only the highest quality, USA-made products, personalized customer service, and a true love for the industry and skateboarders worldwide." From the "Vert Is Dead" blog: "Toxic was a company based in Maryland who sponsored Dave Crabb, Bernie O'Dowd, Ken Fillion, Denny Riordon and a few others. Jim "Murf" Murphy rode for them after Alva fell apart, too. They totally played up the toxic image with bright neon colors and gross imagery. Even the wheels had names like Toxic Waste and Toxic Poison. Pretty clever." Instagram: @brandxtoxic
