We here at Rayne believe we do a hell of job making quality, performance, rider driven skateboard products and want to focus on what we do best. With 40 years of skateboard experience, NHS Inc., the parent for brands like Road Rider, Independent, Santa Cruz, Flip and Creature, will take over servincing Rayne's USA wholesale accounts and help deliver the exceptional service our retailers deserve.

All Rayne Longboards will continue to be made in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in our Alley Factory. All Canadian and International sales will remain the same and are welcome to contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Rayne Longboards to be distributed in the USA by NHS, Inc.

NHS is proud to accept the USA distribution rights for Rayne Longboards, starting January 2014. The Rayne spring product launch will take place at Agenda-Long Beach and Surf Expo-Orlando tradeshows in both the Rayne and NHS booths.

Partnering up with NHS in the USA is a great opportunity to continue Rayne’s success and growth,” says Graham Buksa, President of Rayne. “It allows us to put more focus on what we do best; product design, community building and marketing as we tap into NHS’ core strengths; ease of ordering, on hand inventory and customer service. We are excited and honored to work with such a well-established and respected organization as NHS.

Rayne Longboards first and foremost have a great product offering and are a great group of guys.” says Bob Denike, CEO and President of NHS. “They remind us a lot of the early days of NHS, where it was all about product innovation and passion for going as fast as possible and bombing hills. When you add the amazing group of team riders, differentiated marketing, consistent quality and a high performance product offering, it truly is a complete high end package. We are excited to be working with Rayne and look forward to helping them grow in the USA.

Also joining NHS as Rayne Longboards Sales Rep is top pro downhill racer Kyle Wester. Kyle will work with the existing NHS sales team to ensure a smooth transition of distribution with a focus on customer service. Kyle is also a pro rider for Rayne, Road Rider Wheels and Mob Grip.

I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with two solid companies while also balancing it with my pro career,” Kyle states. “I think the vision and values of both companies complement each other and I look forward to applying my product knowledge and sales expertise to help grow this brand and product.
