Heroin skateboards was founded by Burnley born Mark ‘Fos’ Foster back in the 90’s. Despite the controversial name, Fos doesn’t drink or take drugs, the name is more a reflection of skateboardings addictive nature. They’ve always focussed more on the fun and individual side of skateboarding and this is reflected in the companies video releases to date.
Fos currently resides in the States where he handles the artwork for brands including Altamont and Baker to name a few. The Heroin team is predominantly still UK based although they have international team riders from the States and Japan too.
The current team consists of: Gou Miyagi, Fos, Daniel Shimizu, Deer Man of Dark Woods, Chopper, Chet Childress, Rogie, Howard Cooke, Tom Day, Adrian Adrid and Stephen Malet.
