Small town Indiana boy makes good.

Jeff Kendall

Jeff Kendall is the new Vice President of NHS. That means he’s the guy who is actually responsible for making sure Santa Cruz and it’s related companies stay in business. If you had to guess 20 years ago, which Santa Cruz pro would end up actually running Santa Cruz, it would have likely been Rob Roskopp. Check out Jeff Kendall’s humble beginnings on former Transworld Skateboarding editor Britt Parrott’s MESS (Mid-Eastern Skateboard Series) tribute site. I just ran in to Britt at my neighborhood grocery store a couple days ago, where he threatened to come session with us again. Let’s see if he Googles his own name.


  1. we heart jeff kendall. he also has a baby skate clothes company, littleruler dot com or something like that?

  2. Biggest asset: he’s a Replacements fan

  3. worst asset: he’s a kook

  4. Bummer. Jeff never sent me his info for the site, which I haven’t worked on in five years. I am thinking about having a 25-year MESS reunion next summer. Maybe I can get some updated information.

  5. Jeff sent me his updated info. Maybe now I’ll get back to working on that site and get a domain for it.

    Jeff Kendall rules ! Possibly his biggest contribution to the world was as a drummer for the legendary San Jose band, “Boo Boo Squad”

    Congratulations and best wishes going forward Jeff !
