About Elephant Brand Skateboards
Elephant Brand was founded by professional skateboarder Mike Vallely in 2011. The company is founded on the idea of its products being 100% fun, based on Valley’s motto, “Weapons of Mass Creation!” They chose an elephant as their logo because the animal represents dignity, honor, and loyalty—traits that the company stands for. To symbolize these qualities, they drew laurel (a symbol of peace) on the elephant’s trunk.
Elephant Brand focuses on building high performance skateboard decks that are designed to ride on any terrain. Their decks are inspired by the first board Vallely received in 1984. His original board was made for hardcore skating, not easy cruising. Since then, Elephant Brand skateboard decks have always been designed to withstand the toughest abuse from the most experienced skaters.
Elephant decks, constructed of strong and durable 7 ply maple, are great for skaters of any skill level, catering to both beginners and pros alike. Their decks are available in several colors and designs, featuring stunt drivers and their iconic elephant logo. Elephant Brand may be new to the skateboard market, but their quality decks and devoted followers say otherwise. This brand will not disappoint!
