Almost Skateboards is an American brand that is known for producing excellent quality skateboards, decks and hardware. It was founded by two legends of the skateboard world, Rodney Mullen and Daewon Song in 2003. Many skateboarders ride with Almost and commonly praise the pop and durability of the decks.
Going against tradition, Rodney and Daewon started to develop Almost skateboard decks with carbon fiber inner layers to improve the strength to weight ratio. This innovative gamble has paid for them as the Almost boards are now used by a long list of professional riders. The company also participates in a Regrowth Sustainability Mission which involves using eco-friendly resin, renewable raw materials and 100% compostable bags.
This LA-based company has definitely gained a lot of respect for its construction process over the years and the Almost values “Have fun, Skate everything” has remained true to this day.
