Rising from the ashes of Underworld Element Skateboards, Element formed in 1992 under the protection of Johnny Shilleriff. Shilleriff had a rough start to his own life and decided that Element Skateboards overall contribution to skateboarding would be a positive one.

With slick, fresh artwork and graphics, and a team that included Mike Vallely, Ray Barbee, Bam Margera, Bucky Lasek, Darrel Stanton and Jeremy Wray, Element managed both commercial success, a credible rep and sound ethical values. Not an easy combo, but one that helped Element become a key player in skateboarding.
