    Default What makes a great skateboard company?

    I was just reading the Blueprint thread, and in my head I went "Oh great, the graphic design company masquerading as a skateboard company is back in business". I know that's not fair, because almost every company is the same these days...

    BUT...

    Surely a company needs to do more than just brand generic products and churn out videos and ads? Is Dwindle ultra-wack for making decks with shock absorbers in them? What about the likes of Krooked pushing the Zip-Zagger...cool move or cash-grabbing fad? What about the niche companies like Five Points, BDS, Pocket Pistols?

    WHAT IS COOL?

    Blueprint's team are all sick though. No slacking on the team and the art direction is tight. Team is the main thing when it comes to companies for me anyway. Also helps if the art and shape of the boards are good too.

    for me its seeing the love that goes into the stuff they are doing without fail.
    people like fos who quite clearly love skateboarding and who show it without just being a graphic design company who get too caught up in all the business of it all. dont get me wrong ive got a lot of love for blueprint, that wasnt a dig. for me the stuff that gets me really hyped are people like science who are putting out great products, backing sick skaters and showing some love
