“Death Skateboards was started in London in 1998. We are skater owned and run. The name is in reference to the fact that mainstream media proclaimed that skateboarding was ‘Dead’ at the end of the 1970’s. We follow our own direction, not trends or fashion.
Death was not created to please everyone. But it was created to have longevity and exist whether skateboarding remains popular or not. We take pride in making the highest quality products, but selling them at a fair price.
DEATH FOR LIFE.”
– Nick Zorlac, founder of Death Skateboards
