Creature Skateboards was founded out of NHS Inc. Distribution in 1994 by Russ Pope. NHS was forced to put Creature on the shelf in the late 1990's but revived the brand under the leadership of Darren Navarette and Lee Charron in the mid 2000's. Their current team includes David Gravette, Willis Kimbel, Jimmy Wilkings, Cody Lockwood and Milton Martinez.
