Unveiling Santa Cruz's Exciting Summer Blind Bag Skateboard Drop
This summer, Santa Cruz is set to thrill skateboard enthusiasts and collectors alike with another captivating blind bag drop. For those unfamiliar with the concept, a blind bag is essentially a non-transparent bag that conceals the skateboard deck you're about to purchase, making the unboxing a delightful surprise.

Diving into Santa Cruz’s rich history, there have been several memorable blind bag editions. One that stands out prominently is the Natas Blind Bag. This particular edition gave skateboard aficionados the golden opportunity to possibly snag a unique 1-of-1 Natas original deck. Among the offerings were nine distinct variants of Natas's SMA panther decks, each with its own allure.
Remember the adrenaline rush of unboxing Pokémon cards, not knowing what might be inside? This summer promises to evoke that same exhilarating emotion but with Santa Cruz Skateboards. Picture this: a blind bag skateboard, each with diverse designs and some even flaunting holographic decks, concealed in a bag, echoing the unpredictability of Pokémon card packs.
Here’s what to anticipate:
Santa Cruz Skateboards is rolling out 20 distinct variants of a random 8" deck, each adorned with a unique Pokémon character.
Of these, 15 will be holographic decks, shimmering in silver metallic and prismatic foil.
Gold Foil Variants
For those with a penchant for the ultra-rare, watch out for the 5 gold foil variants. These are especially limited, with only 50 of each variant available globally.
Exclusive Apparel Capsule
Complementing the deck release, Santa Cruz will introduce a capsule collection comprising a t-shirt, hat, and socks, each imprinted with signature designs.

The Pokémon blind bag decks were gone in minutes. Some individuals even camped outside the door prior to the shop opening. Also with any/ limited drops the flippers and resellers were out in force. Some people tried or wanted to purchase 10 decks at a time. Of course we didn’t let that or any foolishness go down. We tried to take care of those whom consistently support Amateur Athlete Skate Shop. So it pays of to support and show love to AA, rather than only calling when a sick limited drop is out. Cross your fingers in hopes that more Pokémon skateboards will be dropped in the future. If that indeed does happen you know what favorite skate shop in Bethlehem Pa to hit up.
