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 Fall 2013 line of skateboards includes two separate colorways of Kevin Kowalski Logo decks along with his Ouija pro model board. Mark “Red” Scott’s Duty Now pro model deck is a guaranteed rip ride and Bryce Kanights’ retro Gargoyle model (with a larger 15′ wheelbase) is offered in three choices of stained veneer. Our Bastard series illustrated by Peter Whitley offers up three notorious dictators for you to properly abuse with boardslides and more right across their faces. Rounding out this line up, Lifeblood’s Logo boards in red and metallic gold are available in three sizes/widths, the Mini-Shred deck is prime for those upstarts and young guns with shorter stances and the continuation of our very first Coffee Cruiser graphic remains. It’s sustained as a lifer’s favorite for a quick cruise around town.
