Who is Noll Worldwide?

We’re glad you asked.

We are a dynamic company that holds the worldwide licensing rights for the Noll Family intellectual property and brands.

Greg Noll, surfing legend who rode to fame among surf circles in the 50s and 60s, is known for pushing the limits of physics and the human body–on a grand scale. In his iconic, graphic striped surf shorts, he stared down fear, achieved the impossible and became a legend. In turn, he inspired a new generation of surfers to get in the water.

Driven by Noll’s spirit, we make technically superior surf and activewear products that people love. Our gear performs, looks great, and will never let you down. We are where old school meets new wave, and at they very least, “it looks really good on ya”.

We’re also in the business of pushing limits, and showing people what they can achieve if they “take the drop”.

We believe in supporting those around us and doing the right thing. We respect courage, history, tradition and mother earth. We live for today while laying the groundwork for a better tomorrow. We believe there is wisdom in taking chances. We inspire people to create their own legend whether that be for their spouse, kids, friends or…themselves. So get out there and do your thing.

We live, we eat, we surf. We are Noll Worldwide.

Case Studies in Collaboration

Element
Irvine, CA
Category: Skateboards
Year: 2010

Element Skateboards and Noll Worldwide teamed up to create a line of custom skateboards.

The Travel Well Greg Noll Collection captured the history of the surf icon’s big wave surfing and innovative board shapes with five iconic boards shaped exclusively for Element, each representing a specific chapter in Noll’s history. Noll is famous for hand shaping and selling the first mass marketed skateboard from his Hermosa Beach shop in 1958, and all five decks display graphics that mirror iconic art from Greg’s storied past.

The Greg Noll Collection captured the artistry and spirit of Greg and Jed Noll, and cements their reputation as essential contributors to surf and skate culture.

"Greg Noll helped pioneer our industry. The Noll brand is an authentic reminder of that and his great contributions to both surfing and skateboarding." commented Johnny Schillereff, Founder and President of Element Skateboards. "We had a highly successful collaboration and showed the relevance and need of their story in the current market place. It was an honor to collaborate with the Noll family."
