Naked was a company that sold blank decks in a variety of shapes. They were based out of Colorado and Maryland. Their premise was higher quality boards without graphics at a cheaper price, hence the name Naked. They also sold uncut blanks that could be turned into a high school shop project. Their ads alternated between product photos and submitted photos. Sometimes there were credits to go with the photos and other times you got an unidentified ripper with a frontside crail at China Banks. It also looks like Naked might have been one of the first companies to make a slick bottom board.
