We showcase the City Of Angels collection from Los Angeles-based Sketch Skateboards.
Sketch Skateboards was founded by Taylor Watson in 2008 in the Virginia/DC area and later relocated to Los Angeles in 2016. The name Sketch Skateboards actually comes from Taylor’s passion for art because as he says a sketch is the first basis for creating something and it’s also a cultural term that’s used to describe the grit and grind of skateboarding. Taylor prides himself on the fact that decks are made right here in the USA using homegrown wood from the great lakes area.
When asked what differentiates Sketch, Taylor said it’s very difficult to improve upon tried and true traditional 7-ply skateboard decks, but it’s the finer details.that makes the difference. For example his decks are made right here in the USA using homegrown wood from the great lakes area. Taylor also prefers a tighter taper that’s not too pointy and he designed all his boards to provide a happy medium that enables a skater to contact the ground quicker than other shapes. You’ll appreciate that attention to detail when you push this City Of Angels Hell Complete to the limits and back.
