HUF and REAL Skateboards are proud to present ’25 Years of Falling Down’, a collaborative apparel collection celebrating Keith Hufnagel’s 25-year career of makes and slams as professional REAL team rider since 1993. Taking inspiration from 90s-era skate culture, the capsule reinterprets REAL’s iconic “Oval” and “Hydrant” logos across a range of outerwear, fleece, tees, hats, socks, and stickers. VHS cover art and freeze-frame visuals from REAL’s 1997 cult-classic Non Fiction video adorn long and short sleeve tees, while special-edition photo tees (shot by Gabe Morford) showcase Keith from memorable REAL ads over the years.

HUF is proud to officially welcome Justin Drysen to the team. “Justin’s one of those rare examples in skateboarding, way ahead of his years,” said Keith Hufnagel. “He skates super fast, is always improvising with quick feet, and somehow does it all with style and control—that’s exactly what HUF’s all about.” Stay tuned for his full part in the forthcoming ‘HUF 002’ video releasing soon.

This Fall, HUF is pleased to announce the launch of its Dolores Collection, a new apparel capsule of women’s clothing. Named after Dolores Park in San Francisco, the dynamic collection is a nod to the brand’s roots where the first-ever HUF Boutique carried men’s and women’s garments, skate goods and collectible sneakers.
Integrating seamlessly with the clean and classic aesthetics upon which the brand is built, the Dolores line translates staple pieces from HUF’s Tokyo-inspired Fall 2018 Collection into comfortable, contemporary women’s clothing silhouettes.
Coming off the heels of the HUF x Peanuts drop and in conjunction with the New York concept store STORY and the Peanuts Global Artist Collective, HUF presents a series of limited-edition skate decks featuring artwork by Charles Schultz that has been reinterpreted by seven select Peanuts Collective artists.
The artists – AVAF, FriendsWithYou, Kenny Scharf, André Saraiva, Nina Chanel Abney, Rob Pruitt, and Tomokazu Matsuyama – offer their own creative take on Schultz’s iconic art and characters, giving each deck an original and contemporary twist on the Peanuts gang.
AVAF works in a vast array of media, including painting, drawing, installations, video, sculpture, neons, wallpaper, decals, and often confronts gender, politics, and embedded cultural codes through pop imagery and neon colors. The duo brings a passionate collaborative spirit to every aspect of their work—from conceiving projects in tandem, to employing an extensive range of references and materials, to executing large-scale installations with expert, animated, diversely talented teams.
FriendsWithYou is the fine art collaborative of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, working collectively since 2002 with the sole purpose of spreading the positive message of Magic Luck, and Friendship™. Known for immersive installations and interactive artworks, FriendsWithYou invites viewers of their work to reconnect with and reinterpret their lives through communal experiences.
Kenny Scharf is an American painter and installation artist, born in 1958 and currently living and working in Los Angeles. He is associated with the Lowbrow movement, and best known for his visually dynamic work inspired by comic books and pop culture.
Graffiti was the first way André Saraiva made his mark on the world. He was born in Sweden, and grew up on the outskirts of Paris tagging his name on the neighborhood’s walls as an urgent declaration of his existence. His works have been shown in museums and contemporary art galleries around the world, with a monumental wall of tiles installed in Lisbon in 2016.
Combining representation and abstraction, Nina Chanel Abney’s paintings capture the frenetic pace of contemporary culture. Broaching subjects as diverse as race, celebrity, religion, politics, sex, and art history, her works eschew linear storytelling in lieu of disjointed narratives.
