About Whatever Skateboards

About Us

Whatever Skateboards allows anyone to create their own custom skateboards, longboards, and grip tape with your own graphics or our free graphics library and design galleries.

There is just something awesome about designing your own deck and making an entire custom skateboard or custom longboard just for yourself, with your own pictures / designs. So that’s why we’re here, we want you to be able to design Whatever the F You Want on not just any board shape, but awesome quality boards you will love. The first time you try it, you will be amazed how awesome a board can look with your own personal style on it – we definitely were.


Every board we offer is high quality.  North American maple, 7 to 9 ply (depending on the type of board), sourced for quality, to last a long time and feel great skating. 

We’ve skated for over 20 years and we choose to skate our own decks daily, so that should tell you a lot right there.

A lot goes into a good board besides the wood, itself.  We use great shapes and high quality glues, too, which also matters a lot for a board to perform the way you want it to.  Our park decks are nice and responsive and have great pop for ollies and tricks.

Whatever Skateboards - Custom Skateboards and Grip Tape

Our History

Whatever Skateboards was founded in 2013 by skaters, for skaters.  We’ve shipped tens of thousands of custom skateboards and custom longboards worldwide made on-demand one-at-a-time since then.

We call beautiful San Diego, California home.  Luckily here in our home town we can skate year round, so why wouldn’t we!?  We can skate almost everyday of the year since there’s no snow and barely any rain, making San Diego one of the most skate-friendly cities on this rock flying through space that we call Earth.

Being regular skaters, we love skateboards.  We love cool skateboards even more.  Really sick of the generic corporate BS plastered on skate decks, we looked around everywhere for a good site where we could put our own graphics on the high quality skate decks we wanted and design them the way we wanted, and we couldn’t find anything that really excited us.  So, our project to create this Whatever Skateboards began.

Top Manufacturers

We work with the top manufacturers to customize the best products available and stick by that commitment as our own customers. Our Whatever boards are manufactured using Canadian maple and our Whatever SD boards are made in San Diego, California.


Quality Boards

Our product is sourced from the finest rock hard Canadian and North American maples.  Our boards are constructed to have awesome responsiveness, flex, pop, that break or warp.

We have been riding our custom skateboards and custom longboards everyday to and from work for a long time now and it never gets old.  Some of our own custom decks that we ourselves ride are almost 10 years old and still rockin’. 

We make sure everything about our boards are superior and test that daily. We guarantee no matter what you put on your custom skateboard deck you’ll love how it looks, and when you ride it you’ll love how it skates.
