Almost Skateboards, Boards and Decks
Almost Skateboards all started over a coffee between Rodney Mullen and Daewon Song back in 2003, when they decided they both wanted to do something together that will be fun and different. Almost a skateboard company was born, a company that wanted to focus on creativity, fun and some good humoured self-deprecation. It's become a family brand of unbelievable skateboarders joining as 1 across the world.
Almost makes the highest quality skateboard decks with some of the best pop in the industry by using both 7-ply & 8-ply as well as carbon fiber constructions, with the decks being bound with epoxy glue.
After both Rodney and Daewon had left their respected Skate companies (Enjoi & Artafact), they joined up to form Almost, and includes some of the world most well known riders including Ryan Sheckler. Almost have collaborated with some of the worlds biggest brands including Nike SB & Transworld Skateboarding Magazine, as well as having a series on the Tony Hawk Ride Channel. More recently Almost have run collaborative series of skateboard decks, including DC Comics.
In more recent years Almost have focused their attention on carbon fibre construction decks, using extremely light 7-ply resin decks with a carbon fiber inner layer, a bit like the foam core's seen in surfboards. The result is a stronger and lighter board in construction than traditional wooden boards. The brand range got known as "Über Experimental".
