Alien Workshop Skateboards was founded in 1990, and is today one of the most popular skateboard companies in the world. One of the first riders for the team was TV star Rob Dyrdek, who today acquires full ownership of the company. Other notable riders for Alien Workshop include Dylan Rieder, Grant Taylor, and Heath Kirchart. Alien Workshop skateboard decks are designed with the highest caliber materials, and manufactured with top-of-the-line performance technology. Some boards come equipped with the popular Impact Support, which provides extra support by reinforcing the vulnerable areas on the deck with carbon disc inserts.
