Welcome to the preview mode of the new Blockhead Skateboards site!  It will be functional for pre-orders on Monday June 22 at 5:00 pm (Pacific time).
I can’t believe it’s been 30 years since I screen printed the first batch of Blockhead boards in my parents Nor-Cal garage.   There are 4 reissue decks available including a batch of 30 ultra-limited Streetstyle boards made on original NOS epoxy-glass blanks from 1985!   Great attention to detail is being made on the reissues to assure they are as close to the originals as possible including the creation of a new mold for the 86-88 era decks.
A free 80's NOS Blockhead sticker will be included as a pre-order bonus on all reissues!
More reissues will follow immediately as well as new modern decks, wheels and hand painted/ limited “Skart Planks” from Ron Cameron.  All for fun and fun for all!  - Dave B

Blockhead founder Dave Bergthold throws out some history about the Streetstyle deck, Blockhead's first board in 1985 screened in the family garage. A limited run of 30 Streetstyle skateboard decks is now in the works made from NOS epoxy-glass blanks pressed in 1985.
