Design Your Own Old School Skateboard And Old School Longboard

We know what if feels like to want to design your own old school skateboard so we made the very best old school skateboard decks and old school longboards around. Here are some of our best deck shapes to custom design with a timeless appeal. At Whatever Skateboards we’re all about designing your own old school skateboard, from the pinnacle of the park popsicle to the laziest longboard cruiser. Like any silver screen masterpiece the test of time has even improved of the classics with modern science, (read: fiberglass). Old school skateboarding style without riding like something from history class (Editor: *groan*). We’ve taken the time to break down some of the best “design your own” old school skateboards and old school longboards we have on our site.

Design Your Own Old School Skateboard – Skateboarding 101

If there is one old school skateboard that took over to defined skateboarding and solidified itself as the official “skateboard” shape is it this iconic textbook shape. Nothing says old school quite like… well… a classic skateboard. One of the best formats to design your own this pro model also is made of top quality wood so you’ll be able to shred in steez. Gripped up with Jessup and ready to roll nothing says gourmet like a classic popsicle deck.

The Oversized Skateboard – Skateboarding 201

Some people insist bigger is better and in a nod to the early days we’ve gone ahead and carved this massive hunk of old school wood pushing madness. Shaped in an older style with modern cuts the actual size of the board is much bigger than the old school style street decks. Built for ancient beasts and those who need a little more canvas for their graphics this is one of the decks we’ve finally grown up enough to mash around.

The Dart – Your Friendly Old School Longboard

No trip down old school skateboard lane is complete without longboarding and no old school longboarding sesh is complete without a Dart pintail style. The original beach shape and preferred throughout Southern California for ages the surf style pintail give you that uplifting bouncy ride you remember. Pop up and down to some tunes on your Walkman and throwback to when when tails were out of fashion. Cooler than a skinny tie in a class picture this amazing old school beach style cruiser looks great with custom beach themed designs.

Official Whatever Skateboard Old Skool Skateboard

This is our official slice of old school skateboarding and this shape is sweeter than summer vacation with a deck shape shimmering somewhere between cruiser, shortboard, and fishtail. When you tell your grandkids on their hoverboards about skateboarding this is the shape you are talking about. We took inspiration from all of our favorites so you feel like you’re riding every style of old school skate at once. Fishing for that monster fin in back? You’ll catch it. Want to get groovy with the sweeps? Jack up on some risers or use the carved wheel wells to snap in some reverse kingpins and throw peace signs on the boardwalk. Need to pop? The tail catches. Monster hill? Use the extra length we threw in with a slightly wider pocket in back. This is a go to daily driver and a dependable skate. The wide shape is awesome for custom old school designs and graphics and is the definitive upgrade for all old school skates.
