For the past 25 years, everything at Real Skateboards has been about one thing and one thing only: skateboarding. That is the recipe for success for this brand, which has been an integral part of the scene since 1991 and it isn’t likely to change in the years to come. Next to a team practically overflowing with high-class skateboarders, Real has been bringing it since the very first day with top-quality skateboard decks. Of course, you can get decks, complete boards and streetwear from Real Skateboards in our skatedeluxe Online Skate Shop. Roll forever!
Independent and determined right from the start - Real Skateboards
Real is now one of the oldest existing skateboard brands. This rock of a company, headquartered in San Francisco, dates back to a time when skateboarders did not have much say in the industry. Above all, decks had to sell, and it wasn’t about trying to please 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 things into their own hands and founded a company that would reflect the real and raw character of skateboarding. With the help of skateboard legend Fausto Vitello, who is, among other things, the father of the world-renowned Thrasher Magazine, Real Skateboards was able to establish themselves in a short period of time.
Real’s main message is not only reflected the products, but also in the videos from the brand. More than ten strips, fully packed with amazing skateboarding, should at the very least convince you that Real Skateboards knows what they’re doing, much like the team that represents Real on the streets all over the world. Here, true legends such as Keith Hufnagel, Max Schaaf, Peter Ramondetta and Dennis Busenitz tear it up, along with the likes of Ishod Wair, Jake Donelly, Chima Ferguson, and Thrasher’s 2016 Skater of the Year, Kyle Walker.
With their timeless board graphics, Real Skateboards also impresses with new boards every year. Designs like the "Oval" have been part of the catalogue for years and have definitely earned their spot. In addition, there are some deck constructions from Real that offer you features to give you advantages on the board.
Decks with the Heavyweights construction, for example, have thicker, transversely glued layers that make these boards stiffer, guaranteeing a long-lasting pop. Just Real Skateboards - pushing skateboarding since day one!
Skating for a good cause - Actions REALised
Since 2010, Real Skateboards has been supporting non-profit projects and foundations inside and outside of the skateboarding scene. A portion of the profits earned from sales of the Action REALized Decks goes to various projects, such as children's hospitals and the Red Cross. With the purchase of any of these decks, you not only get a 1A processed board, but also give back. Doesn’t get any better than that, does it?
