Mode makes some of the highest-quality equipment in North America. Run by Terry Synnott, they sell skid plates, wheels and three different hand-screened freestyle boards.
Moonshine have been around for a while now and have the biggest freestyle team going. They’ve got a series of pro models of varying shapes and sizes, with more to come soon. Whatever style of deck you’re looking for, Moonshine probably has you covered.
Decomposed has been around for a while and acts as a virtual one-stop shop for freestyle. With a constant flow of new shapes and products – including bargain completes – it’s a great place to both get your first freestyle setup or pick up a replacement set of trucks or wheels.
Sk8kings is run by the Carrascos, a family with a long history in skateboarding. While primarily supplying the slalom scene, they also make a range of freestyle boards and wheels – and stock all the trucks and accessories you’ll ever need.
Seismic manufacture a range of wheels, bearings and accessories for longboarding, slalom and freestyle; the 55mm Focus is their offering for freestyle, and is the highest-grade urethane available.
Waltz Skateboards is the new project from former Mode rider Mike Osterman and fellow Youtuber Daniel Trujillo. Currently they have two boards out – both unidirectional derivations of the classic Capital Mini shape.
These guys are legendary, and should need no introduction. They do three freestyle shapes (oddly listed with the street decks), skid plates and the Momentum freestyle wheels, but you’ll need to go elsewhere for the trucks. It’s definitely worth looking at Christian Heise’s model, though. It’s beautiful.
