As a small independent skateboard brand with many years of skateboarding experience among us, we’re stoked to make it 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 Fall/Winter 2015 line of skateboards features the work of several amazing artists. Once again, Jeremy Barber illustrated Kevin Kowalski’s new Northwest Totem pro model board tying in the Kowalski family’s wood carving heritage along the central coast of Oregon.
The Toxic Beauty series was illustrated by Casey McKinley and features a three-board illustration to highlight his exceptional skills with the micron pens. Our Lifeblood Logo boards are available in four sizes and widths mixed between two colorways available. These bright contrasting color combinations of light blue and brick red will surely stand out in any skating environment.

These shorter and colder days are just upon us for a few more months, but at least there are some warm or covered spots remaining to shred with friends. Skate everything!
