25 Artistic Skateboard Designs

From Swanky Wooden Skateboards to Scandalous Skateboard Decks

— August 19, 2015 — Lifestyle
The world of skating has an association with individuality and that is epitomized in these artistic skateboard designs.

Ranging from works like Nicolas Obery's surrealist interpretation of Disney characters to Ai Weiwei's collaboration with Sk8room to create luxe skate decks, each skateboard shows the varying personalities that are associated with skate culture. The culture is extremely polarizing and the identity of being a skateboarder is associated with being an individual. Some may identify with the hedonistic values accentuated by the HUF x Todd Francis collaboration, or may appreciate the intricate artwork used in the medieval artworks recreated by Boom Art.

As far as the movement goes, the young male and growing female audience is known to stay very much ahead of the curve in terms of fashion and culture outside of just skating. These designs show the expression of an ever-changing culture that continues to adapt.
