Birdhouse was founded in 1992 by Tony Hawk and Per Welinder. Originally named Birdhouse Projects, it was founded on the premise that, if you love something, you support it and and nurture it. Twenty four years later, Birdhouse is still thriving, with one of the best teams in skateboarding. Their current squad includes Jaws, Ben Raybourn, Lizzie Armanto, and David Loy.
