Blast Skates is a skate equipment company that specializes in street art skateboards like these. Designed and founded by Matthew Bromley, the company is known for custom and visually striking boards that are more reminiscent of decor than they are of sporting equipment.

After working as a freelance-illustrator, the British artist began by making customized stickers and statement tees before venturing in the custom skateboard design direction. These modern art skateboards are made in England and are showcased in designs that feature playful graphics and vivid hues. These illustrated skateboards merge together different interests of those who are familiar with skateboard culture. The sporting equipment products are widely influenced by street art and will appeal to the graffiti art enthusiast.
