Skills or Skulls Skateboards

View all 7 Photos

Skills or Skulls Skateboards are handcrafted in limited runs in Amsterdam. Inspired by street surf cruisers from the 60s and 70s, the boards have solid decks of oak or hard maple. The wood comes in a variety of shades and is finished with a clear varnish. Each design is fitted with five-inch trucks in streetlight red and features Skills or Skull’s signature bronze inlay. Unabashedly plain in a world of maximalist skateboard designs, the cruisers embody classic design and fine craftsmanship.
