It’s always an exciting time when your favourite brand drops a brand spanking new line of clothing or hardware. Even better when it’s a collaboration with another brand or franchise. 2019 has really spoiled us so far with some amazing collabs and here at SkateHut we have been compiling our top ones so far.
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea and now on a skateboard under your feet? SpongeBob SquarePants that's who! When Mob dropped this collab of amazing skateboard grip tape, our Instagram blew up. The premium graphics featuring SpongeBob and Patrick on high quality MOB tape have been a huge hit!
Santa Cruz never disappoint when it comes to their collabs. The reception to their collaboration with my childhood faves the Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles was so popular it came out in two waves. On the fashion front there were some amazing tees and long sleeve shirts.
On the skateboard side there were some amazing decks, wheels, grips and speciality cruiser decks, shaped as the cover of the original TMNT movie poster.
The Kitten Queen of kawaii, Hello Kitty, happens to be the second highest grossing franchise of all time!

Herschel's collab with Hello Kitty has resulted in a stunning range of bum bags, backpacks and even a duffle bag, all decked out with Hello Kitty's signature red bow!
