Hockey is a fucking stupid name for a skate brand
that's what makes it so good

would you rather it was called Skateboard Skateboards?

I don't get the "the heated wheel" as a name for a deck company. Love Neil and I know he's used that name before for other projects of his but I don't get it.

Free Dome might take the cake for worst name for me.

I feel like if baker came out now they would be clowned for having that name, but since they've been good for over 2 decades now it's actually hella sick.

Dirty ghetto kids was great for the time.

Passport is a cool name too. I don't know if there is any meaning behind it but I like the idea that a passport allows you to go places and so does a skateboard.

If you skate real fast your wheels heat up. Maybe that was obvious and you already knew that but just thought I'd say it, I think it's a cool name.

I think The Heated Wheel is just particularly odd since it references a specific skateboard part and how it reacts to speed/concrete despite them marketing a totally different part. It's like naming a clothing company The Rusted Bearing or naming your wheel company, Ground to the Axle wheels etc. It is creative but a little confusing too. I don't know I'm a fucking idiot.

There is one of the dumbest names.  Worse than Frog.

Glad they've got DLX backing though, they're doing rad shit even with the stupid name.

FA is terrible as a leading brand. A quiet little company with an obscure team would work.
Deathwish is so dumb. Super corny and now that the dudes are sober it really makes no sense. They now have the exact opposite of a death wish. They should switch to hopeful optimism. FA can stand for freakin mediocre

THEEVE is probably the worst of all time. Even with correct spelling it's a horrible name. Shame too because the trucks were actually the best trucks you could buy for the first couple years they came out. (Indy was still stage 9, thunders widest was only the 147, and ventures may as well of been tensors with slider for how uncool they were)

As far as companies I actually like, Slave has got to be the worst brand name.

At least there's some recognition on deathwish that it's kinda inaccurate, they released this Neen board a couple years back: https://www.homeskateshop.com/skate/decks/deathwish/neen-healthwish-pid-17378

Imagine if there was a company called BASKETBALL skateboards

FOOTBALL skateboards

TENNIS skateboards

lmao Hockey gets away with it because they are sick, like baker, but it's an awful name

i don't mind hockey as a brand name.

FA on the other hand is awful.

Remember Ruckus trucks. that's a pretty bad brand name too.

Toy Machine, foundation, zero, black label, bootleg are all pretty good imo, maybee cause it's what i grew up on haha

pretty good:
Darkroom, Theories, Quasi, The Killing Floor, Toy Machine, Alien Workshop, Hopps, SMA (way better than 'Santa Monica Airlines'), 60/40, Unbelievers, Zorlac,

pretty bad:
Deathwish, Heroin, Jart, Pizza, Fucking Awesome (but just 'FA' is ok), anything with 'Skate' in the name (Sk8mafia, Skate Mental), Blood Wizard

worst: pizza, uma landsleds (if it was uma skateboards it would be ok but that landsleds thing is cringe as fuck in my eyes), fallen footwear, fucking awesome, grizzly, flip, TEAM BURRITO

best: bike, limosine, hockey, world industries, dime, classic griptape

That’s funny I was gonna say THE worst has to be Bike but then someone said Burrito.

Slave is a tricky one cus their graphics are so fucking dope. Same goes with FA. Terrible names, great graphic design.

Favorite gonna have to be Bianca Chandon.


Recognize the skills.
