“In 1996, Biker decided that it was time to do something with the notoriety he was gaining, with his antics at the events and the TV coverage that came from winning races. Dregs® Skateboards was founded in San Diego that same year.”
In August 2013, Dregs® Skateboards co-founder Biker Sherlock, with his new partner Antics Intl and their design & development team is bringing you a re-launched version of the original classic that started back in 1996. Dregs® is a little bit different. It’s unique. Dregs® is about making the best longboards on the market. Whether you are racing at Maryhill, bombing your local freeride spot, cruising to the liquor store or skating to the beach for a surf, we have a board for you.
In the 1970’s & 1980’s a group of friends congregated in San Diego in Southern California to surf, skate, party and listen to music. The tunes playing in the background was more often than not, was the southern rock/bluegrass band, the Dixie Dregs. As the years went by and the group grew, they saw themselves as the guys that really didn’t fit in anywhere…….and became known as Team Dregs.
Biker Sherlock certainly fit the mold and in the early 90’s, he moved from his home town in Jersey and quickly became part of the Dregs crew. With a history in vert & pool skating and courage to burn from surfing big waves and jumping sand dunes on motorcycles, it didn’t take Biker long to become a leader in the emerging downhill racing scene. But being someone who likes to push the limits, Biker also got involved in running events and was pivotal in boosting the hype around longboard skateboarding in the X Games. He would end up winning a bunch of medals and causing havoc along the way. He certainly stood out!
In 1996, Biker decided that it was time to do something with the notoriety he was gaining, with his antics at the events and the TV coverage that came from winning races. Dregs® Skateboards was founded in San Diego that same year. Biker put together a team of the best skaters from the Dregs crew and they continued the tradition of causing havoc and winning races. Along the way, Biker and his team helped refine longboard technology and were always pushing the sport forward. They are attributed with discovering the legendary Maryhill spot and organized the first three races there. Nearly two decades in the industry, Dregs® continues to leave a lasting impression.
After a few trying years, Dregs® & Biker now have a new partnership with Antics Intl, based in San Diego, California. The heart and soul of Dregs® lives on in every product we make.
