The 50 Greatest Skateboards of The 1990s

We hit up two savvy collectors to take us through the most memorable deck graphics from the '90s.


Skateboarding has come in and out of popularity, but since the rise of street skating in the late '80s, one thing has remained consistent: the deck graphics are always crazy. The early skateboards had imagery, but it wasn't really until the '90s, when companies started churning out signature graphics for their pro teams, that there were cutting-edge designs on the walls of every skate shop. Skateboards come out by the hundreds each month these days, but things wouldn't be the way they are now without the decade that brought us brands like World Industries, Alien Workshop, Real, Blind, 101, Flip, and Girl. To give an insider's look into the history of this period, we hit up Tim Anderson of and Michael Hastings of Vans and KCDC, two collectors of '90s skate decks, in order to get an expert opinion on the greatest graphics of that time. Without the graphic explosion of that decade, there would be nothing today, so click below to see Tim's and Mike's picks of the Top 50 Skateboards of the 1990s.
