Best Skateboarding Brands

The Top Ten

1 Plan B

Plan be is the best because plan be has a lot of pro skaters and not only just pros but one of the best skaters in the universe and plan be has better pop.

It is the best board ever! It has the best pop and durability. Element should not be first it should be third. But if your looking for style and pop and durability buy a plan b!

Way better then element
I hated my element they chip a lot
Element should be fifth I think because the do not last very long at all

I have had 2 plan b boards but they both broke within 2 weeks. I have switched to almost becuase they last longer and are more worth the money and less of a waste of money.

2 Element

ELEMENT is awesome it is the best board 4 grinding kickflips 360s element rocks I don't care what you think but its the best board ever!

My first board is an element but I have ride and other boards too and I notice the difference between all them! I surely prefer element at least now

Element in my opinion is by far the best brand out there the helium is unbelievable awesome awesome and once again awesome

The best deck I had in my life

3 Zero

God! Zero's are awesome! They're better than element and plan b put together!

Zero's have sick graphics and awesome pop! But how the hell is element in front of Zero? I mean element is good but compared to zero? Forget it!

Zero are the best by far! Why is it not number 1 zero forever death to non believers

Just the best

4 Girl

This brand should be on top best brands ever I don't know why it is ranked 11 sweetest graphics ever an best pop better then pro 2 boards don't have nearly as much pop than furl

Girl is the best. Why do you think they have all the great pros like Mike Mo, Mike Carrol, Sean Malto, Eric Koston, etc. Element sucks. I can ollie twice as high with girl than I can with element, birdhouse, blind, zero, and all other brands. You people have problems.

I've got an enjoi but gotta admit girl are kick ass

o baby

7 Alien Workshop

Alien Workshop RULE. It was the first good skateboard I got. its very light and pops amazing. I liked it so much I got anouther alien workshop
Arto Saari aws soldier series. its sick! - alienworkshopskater123

AMAZING just got my AWS and its AMAZING its light and strong. Not to be forgotten the price they are super cheap I recommend these to anybody. Please go out and buy one. With riders like steve berra, jason dill, and rob dyrdek they make alien workshop even better!

AWS have to be the best skateboards ever! Amazing concave, lightness, and pop make this board great for all tricks

It has good pop, and it was one of my first skateboards ever. I love them

8 Enjoi

Pretty sick boards. The pop is fantastic and the boards are very durable. Very light and reliable. Enjoi is the way to go.

I've had an enjoi board for about 2 years now and it is great, no more to be said

Enjois have epic pop I have the pen and ink board, I know it feels heavy but it still get better pop than any other board I've tried, plus it's extremely strong, not even a crack yet and I've had it for a year

Good love it it is my first board and I love it it's awesome!

9 Flip

I bought my flip 4 flat ground. The next day I landed a kick flip for my very first time. Enough said flip is a sick brand

I think the flip is the best because it is really good pop and it lands good. I've saw someone use it and it did really good flips and landings it should be first and element should be last.

Flip is better than element and zero it should be #1 - RandomZebraChild

Revive is the best

10 Birdhouse

Birdhouse is the best and so is hawk... How could you not like the great quality and pop of the birdhouse brand board

I got a skate board just this month its awesome birdhouse has great pop and its an amazing board to learn tricks

Really good board and good durability and I personally would rate this board a lot higher than 10 come this is tony hawk's brand and tony hawks the best skater ever!

It is the best brand around. Great for doing tricks, hard to break and is my favorite brand

The Contenders

11 DGK

Dgk boards is all I skate I couldn't live without them

Dgk all day best board I've had doesn't snap like the blind boards they last a long time they are underrated dgk all day

I have been skating these for about 3 years. They are a real masterpiece. The only downside is that they seem to break pretty easy for me. The shape and pop make up for it though.

These boards are sick. They are way poppier and durable then any other boards on this list. The graphics are amazing and so are the pros. The concave makes every trick you do so much easier.

12 Blind

Sick graphics and strong board. Once my blind skateboard got run over by a car and its still in perfect shape

I just got my Blind Ransom deck about month ago and It's perfect. Blind has the best graphics of all time.

Blind rocks I have a blind bloody original and it rocks. - blindsk8ter

My blind woops every nikka in Venice

13 Darkstar

Dark star is amazing runs smoothly zero rocks too amazing and has great design and it should be up there and not down here it rocks

Darkstar is the best skateboard brand in my opinion, and it is going to stay that way for a very long time. Peace out my homies!

I just orderd a darkstar skatebaord the other day I think I made a good choice.

Cool board

14 Zoo York

Zoo york has a distinct way of shaping there board that makes it excel, I wouldn't ride anything else

I love zoo york because it lastes long got great pop and neva breaks or chips

So cool I have 22 and a half boards (one of them broke while I was grinding) I have 10 zoo york sk8 boards and they are the most lightest nice shoes

Zoo yorks are the best, they have the best pop, shape and concave, plus they are really light.
my deck started to wear down a little after 8 months and was still rideable.

15 Toy Machine

toy machine is the best decks ever and they are rated the best decks ever but i dont understand why element is first becuase my friend had one and it broke in a month and he is 11 - cheese

How the hell are toy machine boards20, there really good and should be in the top 12, anyways, world industry boards are crap they should be last - mcarzwashere

So strong and concave best I've had.. Graphix are cool too - anthonymcfadden

Toy Machine Skateboards are one of my FAVORITE skateboard brands. The decks are AMAZING and the graphics look cool. The team shreds every thing and there nice as hell. If you love cool graphics and boards with good concave get a Toy Machine board!

16 Mystery

Its an awesome deck. I bought it a few months ago, and I tried a lot of tricks from a lot of gaps and stairs sets. and my board didn't chipped out once!

It will last me for many years to come :).

for everyone, I recommend you to buy this board, no matter if your a beginner or a pro.

Mystery's r awesome Zeros are cool but I can't trust dem! And Darkstar and Elements are too heavy.. Mystery beats any board forget 12 its #1 - MusicGalSyd3

Mystery is one of the newer brands, You cannot argue with the spectacular quality they give for such a new board! Their team is also super bad Ass! They are also owned by Zero, even though they are different it's a great prestige

Love it much love for the mystery boards

Deathwish makes really nice boards. They've got sick design and a lot of pop and concave so it's easier to land tricks and they are also really durable and last a long time. DEATHWISH FOR THE WIN!

Looks so gnarly! - EliHbk

18 Chocolate

Wo! I'm shocked to see this amazing brand at 19! What I've had santa cruz decks, powell decks, darkstar decks, etc... but my new chocolate deck is the best by far! Perfectly rounded POP! Long lasting and strong. yes the designs aren't the best but who cares. the shape and pop are the important bit. so overall! CHOCOLATE ARE NUMBER 1!

Chocolate is AMAZING! When I first got this board it was so fast it took me a few tries to get used to! Chocolate boards are amazing! Great pop, smooth wheels, great bearings, awesome board! - skatefan1

What why is chocolate on 18 these boards have amazing pop and their designs on their decks are bad ass and their pretty much the same as a girl so this brand should be on like the top 3

Boi, this board at 18th place, no way 1st place all the way!

19 Habitat

Amazing! Great pop and amazing concave. Last for a long time as long as you don't get the bamboo board. They have an earthy style like element, but with a better board quality. The only reason they are not #1 is because they aren't as well known. You cannot snap these boards! I have skated them for a couple of years because they are so good. BUY ELEMENT BOARDS! You wont regret it.

I just got my first Habitat on Friday and I already to teach my self to do a heel flip in 30 min

It is durable and watt better than any other skateboard brand out there. Nice and Sexy

A hidden gem in the skateboard world

20 Real

real is by far the best fliptrick board it may notbe good fer grinds but if you like fliiping real'

Strong board, Quick and INSANE pop! Mine lasted for more than a year and the concave and shape is still in good condition. It flips good and its not flattened out as much. Highly Recommend Real decks.

Real is AWESOME! Real shouldn't be #20.It should be at least top 5.It has an awesome flip and really good pop.Real is also really long lasting.Mine lasted for 1.5 years! Real is AWESOME and the BEST!

They have the best pop and last longer than other boards I've skated. They also have the best concave and flip easier.
