Skateboarder and designer Nicholas Tershay, a.k.a. Nick Diamond, created a skateboard bolt company in San Francisco to furnish the local clientele. In 2000, he moved to L.A. and started building Diamond Supply Co. in the renowned Girl Skateboards distribution house.
Soon after, a full range of hard and soft goods were created, including skateboard bolts and bearings, t-shirts, jeans, jackets, accessories, hoodies, boardshorts and many others. The skate and street fashion communities quickly accepted the brand thanks to its visually strong designs and high-quality products not to mention the strikingly powerful logo and brand name which resonates with seriously high end goods.
In 2005, Nick was asked by Nike Skateboarding to design a signature skateboard shoe. The "Tiffany" Diamond Nike SB Dunk sneakers became one of the most hyped and sought-after trainers in the history of Nike. Fans from across the globe camped out in front of Nike boutique stores for days prior to the release of the Diamond SB Dunk. Even respected publications and collectors have hailed it as one of the all-time greatest Nike SBs.
Like many of today's skate wear and accessories brands, Diamond Supply has collaborated with dozens of artists, musicians, designers and other brands in order to create unique and stylish goods for their avid supporters.

L.A.'s Hazard Park in Boyle Heights is home to the Diamond Supply Co. Public Skate Plaza. It was officially opened in July 24, 2014 for avid skateboarders and fans to enjoy. Skate sessions, anniversaries, and #DIAMONDLIFE picnics are always held at the park which also serves as a community meeting place for skateboarders and their supporters.
The skate plaza came into fruition after The California Endowment was approached by the Street League Foundation in 2013. The latter presented the idea of working together to build healthy and sustainable communities by constructing legal, safe and accessible locations for everyone to skate. Diamond Supply Co. kindly donated matching funds to help turn this dream skate park into reality.
