REAL SKATEBOARDS - A SKATER-OWNED COMPANY
Real is one of the oldest skateboard brands in existence today. This rock of a company, headquartered in San Francisco, dates back to a time when skateboarders didn't have much of a say in the industry. Above all, the decks had to sell, and it wasn't about pleasing the skaters. This is exactly why Tommy Guerrero and Jim Thiebaud decided to go against the grain in the early 1990s.
When the two of them saw their time at Powell-Peralta coming to an end, they took matters into their own hands and founded a company that would reflect the real, raw nature of skateboarding. With the help of skateboarding legend Fausto Vitello, who is, among other things, the father of the famous magazine Thrasher, Real Skateboards was able to establish itself in a short time.
REAL SKATEBOARDS - KINGS OF INNOVATION IN THE SKATEBOARD INDUSTRY
Real's main message is not only reflected in the products, but also in the brand videos. Over ten strips, filled with incredible skateboarding, should at least convince you that Real Skateboards knows what they're doing, just like the team that represents Real on the streets around the world.
Here, true legends such as Keith Hufnagel (RIP), Max Schaaf and Dennis Busenitz tear it up, as well as Ishod Wair, Mason Silva, Jack Olson, Chima Ferguson, Kyle Walker, Zion Wright, Harry Lintell, Nicole Hause, Tanner Van Vark , Patrick Praman and Hermann Stene.
With their timeless graphics, Real Skateboards also impresses with new decks every year. Models like the "Oval" have been part of the catalog for years and have definitely earned their place. Additionally, some of Real's deck builds give you features to give you advantages on the board.
Boards with the Heavyweights construction, for example, have thicker cross-bonded layers that make these boards stiffer, ensuring long-lasting pop. Just Real Skateboards - been pushing skateboarding since day one!
REAL SKATEBOARDS, SUPPORTING THE GOOD CAUSE
Since 2010, Real Skateboards has been supporting non-profit projects and foundations inside and outside of the skateboarding scene. A portion of the profits from the sales of Action REALized games are donated to various projects, such as children's hospitals and the Red Cross. With the purchase of one of these decks, you not only get a 1A treated board, but you also give back. It doesn't get better than that, does it?
