Spotlight: Toy Machine Skateboards – Decks and Beyond

Toy Machine Skateboards Logo - Skate or Die
Toy Machine skateboards is the first major company that I started to really enjoy supporting when I was a teenager. Mainly because of their fearless leader, Ed Templeton. The dude had some amazing style, at least when I was growing up. I also loved The Muska, so when he got on Toy Machine I was all in. Through the years the skateboarding industry has changed, and even though Toy Machine skateboards evolved with it, their promotional campaigns, team, videos, and decks seemed to still rely on that classic, “blood sucking” Toy Machine skateboards company mantra. To this day, I’m still all about the blood sucking company, even though some may have forgotten all about the roots of Toy Machine skateboards. If you haven’t really checked in on them lately, you owe it to yourself to look at some of the boards, videos and random stuff they are throwing out. I for one am down, and here are a few shining examples of their continual push forward, even though the skate world changes all the time.

Toy Machine Skateboards has put out some sick skateboarding clips, and if you have been paying attention, then you already know. However, if you haven’t been paying attention at all, then you’re missing out on some of the clips that you definitely should check out today. Some of the team members on Toy machine skateboards right now include: Leo Romero, Daniel Lutheran, Josh Harmony, Collin Provost, Ed Templeton, Matt Bennett, Billy Marks, Jeremy Leabres, and Blake Carpenter. These guys have been representing for Toy Machine Skateboards hard, and you owe it to yourself to see what they’ve done on a skateboard in recent months. Especially some of the clips of Leo Romero and Daniel Lutheran tearing things up.

Toy Machine Skateboards has a ton of decks out right now. You can pick them up ranging from 30 bucks to upwards of 90 bucks for a complete. The last Toy Machine deck I owned was an Ed Templeton classic, but there’s so many on the market right now, that you have a ton of options to choose from. If you’re looking to pick up a new deck, and you want to represent or try to get on Toy Machine, then you should definitely get one of their decks, skate hard and film it. Then send it to them, and other companies. Whatever the case is, you can pick up decks here and get free shipping. Or you can visit your local skateboard shop to get in on the action. I for one prefer online, especially since I don’t have a local shop near me, and I know for a fact some shops are now selling via amazon. Anyways, Toy Machine is a perennial brand that isn’t going anywhere, so if you’re going to support skateboarding, especially pro models, then why not go with Toy Machine Skateboard decks? Seriously.
