REAL SKATEBOARDS: was originally started out in San Francisco, CA by skateboarding street pioneers Jim Thiebaud and Tommy Guerrero. … With all doors open for suggestions and ideas from the skaters, Real Skateboards quickly became a raw skateboard company with an unrelenting commitment to skateboarding.
Believing that performance and feel of your deck is important – duh- we set out to make the best boards for skateboarders. It was never about just one style board to fit all, but decks that would allow skaters to choose specifically for how they individually want to skate.
Unlike many companies, we don’t make special decks for our team riders and then sell decks of lesser quality. The same decks the team rides are the ones we sell.
