As the saying goes, ‘all good things must come to an end’. Which is the case for the brands featured in this post, who all fell by the wayside for one reason or another.
We thought it would be good to celebrate them for what they were – hopefully jogging your memory and getting you stoked on something you watched when you were younger, bringing your attention to something that might have passed you by, or giving you a nice dose of skateboarding history if you’re too young to remember them the first time around.
We’ve focused primarily on European brands, though we’ve got a couple of American companies in there too, either because they supported Europeans or just because we really like them.
This list is by no means exhaustive so feel free to suggest any you think we should include and we’ll add them in.
