As a newer brand with many years of skateboarding experience among us, we’re stoked to make it widely known that Lifeblood skateboards are produced in North America by PS Stix. Over the past twenty-five years lifelong skateboarder and master craftsman “Professor” Paul Schmitt has constructed superior skateboards for numerous premium brands and his proprietary designs have directly affected millions of skateboarders throughout the world.

As you might already know, I’ve personally skated, tested and endorsed Paul’s skateboards since my years as a professional with his original Schmitt Stix brand. PS Stix decks have been performance-proven over the past two and a half decades and have unquestionably established a benchmark of quality craftsmanship by which all other manufactured skateboards are measured.

If you regularly skate the streets, the skateparks, ledges, rails, gaps, pools, pipes, ditches and assorted terrain like we do, then you’ll probably dig our board sizes, shapes and concaves. Lifeblood skateboards aren’t necessarily “one size fits all”, but our wider shapes tend to allow you to skate all sorts of spots with one set up. Simply put, we don’t feel that a board width measuring under 8 inches wide can properly handle it all. We’re truly committed to deliver quality skateboards and offer soft goods that fit the lives we live and yours as well.

Our Spring 2013 line of skateboards are here and it includes two sick new Kevin Kowalski pro model boards illustrated by Jeremy Barber, Mark Scott’s Big Red pro model deck and Bryce Kanights’ original BK Graffiti model (with a larger 15′ wheelbase) with assorted color veneers. The Love Gun is the newest shape added to our line of skateboards and it also features a longer 15” wheelbase for a more stable ride on bigger transitions and general all terrain use.

Our Consumer Gals series was illustrated by Casey McKinley and offers up three glorious ladies paired up with a twist upon everyday products. Our Lifeblood Logo boards have rolled out in a brick red and yellow colorway and are available in four sizes and widths. For the young guns with shorter stances, our popular Mini-Shred deck has a new colors and proves to be a great entry-level board to get those first grinds. And last, but not least, our very own Coffee Cruiser graphic has been updated. It’s a lifer’s favorite for a quick cruise around town.

Cheers to the longer and warmer days ahead. Skate everything!
