Jim Thiebaud founded Real Skateboards in 1991, along with the help of Fausto Vitello and professional skateboarder Tommy Guerrero. Real Skateboards has always stayed true to skateboarding, by sponsoring the most talented riders in the sport, as well as supporting the best events. Real has an amazing lineup of riders, which include Ishod Wair, Peter Ramondetta, and Justin Brock. Real Skateboard Decks come equipped with many different design elements that improve performance. Some of the elements include a low profile deck, and a mellow concave deck. All Real Skateboard Decks are designed and tested by the Real team themselves!
