Schillereff founded Element Skateboards in 1992 and built a world-renowned brand known for manufacturing high-quality skateboard decks, apparel, and footwear. After reaching more than $200 million in sales, he sold Element in the early 2000s. Now, along with his family, Schillereff has launched a new brand, The Heart Supply, and seeks to #GiveSkateboarding to kids around the world. The Heart Supply also boasts its own skateboarding team which includes Tokyo Olympics medalist Jagger Eaton.
On the show, Albritton and Schillereff ponder “Are skateboards toys?” and discuss The Heart Supply’s new deal with Jakks Pacific and Target and how it will help power the company’s mission to give back to kids around the world.
