Who are Enjoi Skateboards?
Enjoi, primarily a skateboard deck manufacturer was established in 2000 by professional skateboarder Marc Johnson. Marc wasn’t alone. He had help from Rodney Mullen. Marc revealed that the name and panda logo came from a dream he had.
Following the establishment of the company Marc started to grow the team. Inviting friends that he skated with to join. Both Louie Barletta and Jerry Hsu were the first recruits. Louie has continued with Enjoi since this point and is now the team manager.
Eventually, in 2010, Marc left Enjoi to Join Chocolate Skateboards. He was tired of double-checking every brand decision and pretty much just wanted to be a pro skater.
Since 2010 the company has seen different managers come and go but one person has been there through it all. Louie, now Louie is everything Enjoi stands for. Fun, outgoing, quirky, and just an outright skate rat!
So now we know where Enjoi started what about their wood?

Enjoi & The Regrowth Programme
Since 2018 Dwindle has developed the REgrowth programme. Partnering up with the National Forest Foundation. Plain and simply 3 trees are planted for every 1 used to make skateboards. This is to help replenish the wood used to produce skateboards and create a sustainable life cycle for skateboard construction.
The Dwindle factory also reduces the wastewater and pollutants. All the water used throughout the manufacturing process is filtered for solids and dyes and then reused again and again. Also, all the furnaces are filtered to reduce pollutants.
Dwindle really is pushing the sustainable side of their production.
