About Real Skateboards

Real Skateboards were founded in 1991 by Tommy Guerrero and Jim Thiebaud both ex-Powell skateboard riders at the time with support from skateboarding pioneer and entrepreneur Fausto Vitello. 

Guererro explained in a twenty-year anniversary interview: I'm not quite sure how me and Thiebaud met; through mutual friends, I think. We were skating together all the time, when he moved to the city and I was giving him Powell gear when I figured, shit, I want to stay in this world for as long as I can. You know, who wants to grow up? 

So, we kind of took it back into the streets ... Skating has to be raw you got to keep it raw and I think Real skateboards has done a great job of that. It was all about just friends doing something together that they believe in, when you have that, it's kind of unstoppable.
