In 1991 Real Skateboards was born. Brought to the surface, stripped of all the unnecessary baggage that had been tagged on over the years by outdated skateboard companies. The idea would be simple and perfect in simplicity. A genuine skateboard company run by skaters to forward the progression of Real skateboarding for Real skateboarders. With strong individuals in the front that dream was realized by such skaters as Tommy Guerrero, Jim Thiebaud, James Kelch, Salman Agah, Max Schaaf, and Keith Hufnagel, passed in to the future with skaters like Dennis Busenitz, Ernie Torres, Peter Ramondetta, and J.T. Aultz. Our strongest tradition, integrity in what we love most skateboarding. Real is designed with skateboarding in mind.
