Founded by Hank Fauerbach, Shipyard Skates is a skateboarding company based in Richmond, Virginia. Fauerbachs decision to start Shipyard Skates stemmed from his frustration of seeing companies churning out factory produced decks using predictable corporate logos. Shipyard Skates skateboard decks are beautifully handmade in Fauerbachs own backyard—and since quality is so important, hes teamed up with custom skateboard manufacturers to make sure your boards are perfectly hand-screened. They have models specifically built for street, park, and bowl terrains. Their decks are great for any skill level, whether you are new to skateboarding or have been riding your entire life. When it comes to top quality gear, Shipyard Skates has the decks you need for unforgettable skating sessions! You are guaranteed to be the envy of your friends.
