Summer 2020 is the season for custom skateboards. We might say that every summer (because when is it not time to skate) but this one’s different. Seriously, Minneapolis just announced it’s constructing 20 new skateparks this year, skating is confirmed as a special addition to the 2020 (now 2021) Tokyo Olympic Games, and people are desperate to get some fresh air and exercise during a pandemic. So what better way to upgrade your summer than with a custom skateboard?
Spend Your Summer Skating
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or new to the skate world, this summer is the time to get out there. Not only is it one of the more socially distanced sports, but you can use outdoor spaces exclusively and never have to set foot inside. Especially with the uncertainty of a pandemic and anxiety of being in crowded spaces, skating is really the perfect pass time to keep you active, out in the sun, and away from crowds.
Impress With a New Custom Skateboard
Custom skateboards will take your summer to the next level. Whatever Skateboards is a small company dedicated to completely customizable skate products. We know your boards are important to you– they’re a personal investment in something you love. We think you should be in complete control of that kind of purchase. From the specs to the design, you can build your board from scratch and hit the pavement with something that is one of a kind. Our products prioritize quality. You can rest assured that you’re designing something that will last. Our boards are all made with high quality Canadian maple wood and high resolution printing that create a crisp image on a sturdy board built to perform. And we don’t just know this from producing them– we ride our own Whatever skateboards almost every day.
Don’t wait until the season’s over and winter weather starts to hit. Make some fun memories in the sun this summer with a custom skateboard from Whatever Skateboards.

Custom skateboard decks make great wall art for you home, apartment, office, breweries, restaurants and more. They give such a playful, rugged and cool vibe once mounted on the wall. Skateboard decks can be positioned horizontal or vertical on your wall and look cool. Here are some important tips to thing about when you are designing a custom deck used for wall art:
Choose the Traditional Heat Transfer Park Decks
Our traditional heat transfer park decks are best for wall art. Most of our Park deck sizes listed on the site are available with this method. These boards are made using the traditional heat transfer method on American Maple. The design has a glossy finish and designs on this type of board may scratch easier that the alternative method. However, we can give a greater price break for these types of boards based off of numbers of designs. These are great for promotional giveaways or wall art. We have these in 7.5″ -8.5″ in steep and mellow concave. Please note the boards with mellow concave are stained on the top.
Use Vibrant Colors
Using vibrant colors when designing your deck for wall art will really make the deck pop. Dark colors do not transfer well and may print darker than they should. Be sure to check with our customer service if you have a logo you want to use. We will make sure the color quality matches as close as possible! You will be so happy with how the custom skateboard deck looks on your wall!
Have Fun with It!
Custom skateboard wall art is such a cool way to decorate your space. Have fun with designing! Use colors, backgrounds, texts and upload photos! The possibilities are endless when it comes to designing a deck. If you’re ever unsure of resolution or color quality, you can always reach out to our customer service team and request a proof. We always have suggestions for which board to choose when designing strictly for wall art uses. Have fun with designing your custom skateboard wall art!
