Etnies has announced the addition of Andy Anderson to its skate team.
“I’m affiliated with etnies because it was the first skater-owned shoe company. It doesn’t get more OG than that,” said Anderson.
Not only can Andy hop onto a 32-stair handrail and handle massive transitions, he has an unmatched imagination for how to skate whatever he sees thanks to his foundation in freestyle.

“It is uncommon to cross paths with a young skater whose talents range from freestyle, street spots to transition that can bring it all together. Andy skates it all and appreciates all types of skateboarding roots,” said Pierre-André Senizergues, owner and CEO of etnies. “Andy skates with the highest level of trick difficulty! We are proud to welcome him to the etnies team.”
Due to the long harsh Canadian winters Andy grew up in, he turned to freestyle to satisfy his appetite for inventive skateboarding. Being anti-ollie in his early days, Andy’s trick selection is as unique as they come, blending an almost forgotten style of board control with a modern eye for where to ride.
In addition to joining the team, he also runs the Etnies REBEL SPORTS collection, which was born out of the rebellious culture of 80s skateboarding. This product collection is inspired by etnies 80s products, and it is available now at etnies.com.
