Natas Kaupas


We sat down with legendary skateboarder and artist Natas Kaupas in his Santa Monica studio and talked about his childhood, art, and the potential of skateboarding. “It’s such a simple tool, right? It’s a piece of wood with four wheels, and it’s wide open, it’s like a pencil or pen—it’s really up to you what comes out of it”, he says.

Coinciding with the release of the video, Natas also launched his shoe collection with Lakai. The Natas Kaupas Collection retails from $70.00, and is now available at selected retailers worldwide. In celebration, we helped Lakai launch the shoe at General Admission in Venice, where Natas exhibited a small collection of hand drawn nautical flags. Below for the wrap.
