Enjoi

American skateboard company Enjoi specialises in decks, but also manufactures accessories and clothing. The company was founded by professional skateboarders Marc Johnson and Rodney Mullen in 2000 and is now part of the Dwindle Distribution family, along with Speed Demons, Almost, Blind, Cliché, Dusters, Darkstar, Tensor and Superior.

Johnson emerged as Enjoi’s first leader, recruiting friends to the company team including former Maple teammates Jerry Hsu, Louis Barletta and Dave Mayhew, as well as Bobby Puleo and Chris Cole. Johnson eventually left the company to join Chocolate, while Mullen went on to co-found Almost in 2004 with fellow pro Daewon Song. Skater Matt Eversole replaced Johnson as Enjoi brand manager, and he in turn was replaced by Barletta when Eversole left in 2013.

The current Enjoi team includes Barletta, Cairo Foster, Caswell Berry, Wieger Van Wageningen, Nestor Judkins and Jose Rojo, plus amateurs Clark Hassler, Ben Raemers and Zach Wallin. The latest addition to the team is Jimmy Carlin, a former rider for Jamie Thomas’s Mystery brand. Long-time member Hsu left in 2013, following the departure of Eversole.

Enjoi videos include 2006’s full-length Bag of Suck, which won the Transworld Skate Video of the Year award in 2007 – edited by Eversole and Kyle Camarillo, it featured the talents of Berry, Hassler, Jason Adams, Hsu, Rojo and Barletta. This was followed by the 2012 promo Tweak the Beef, directed and edited by Eversole and Carson Lee, and featuring music from Glass Candy, Freezepop and pro skateboarder Tony Manfre.
