Quasi's start came from the downfall of Alienwork Shop after its last full length Mind Field. Former Team Manager Chad Bowers set out with up and comers at the time Jake Johnson and Gilbert Crockett to at first start Mother Collective. Due to some rights issues the name was changed to what it is now Quasi. The name its self inspires their artistic creative outlook towards their decks, apparel and videos. Overtime Quasi has put together one of the most solid line-ups in skateboarding today with Tyler Bledsoe, Al Davis, Dick Rizzo, Justin Henry to join alongside Jake Johnson and Gilbert Crockett.
