In 1996 Jamie Thomas started a company named Zero. Zero is originally a clothes store and through the years became a Skateboard store. At the time the store opened Jamie Thomas was a professional skater and was sponsored by Toy Machine. When Jamie Thomas left his sponsor, he went skating for his own company. The switch to his own company was a great decision. Because of the switch, Zero became a successful business.
As the company grew, several skaters joined the company. (Adrian Lopez, Ryan Smith and Lindsey Robertson). In October 2003 Jamie Thomas started a different company with Adrian Lopez, Ryan Smith and Lindsey Robertson. After the opening of their company “Mystery”, skateboarders Adrian Lopez, Ryan Smith and Lindsey Robertson were also declared professional skaters.
