Old Fourth Ward Skateboard - Lightboards

Lightboards is a small scale skateboard deck manufacturing company in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia. It was founded in 2014 by a man with an entrepreneurial spirit, an enjoyment of skateboarding, and a desire to shine light in his community. The company was catalyzed by some winnings from the annual Georgia Tech Ideas to Serve competition.

Each Lightboards skateboard is unique. It is memorable. It was made with intentionality, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and skill. Lightboards makes several different types of skateboards which are listed below. Unless explicitly stated, every skateboard deck was made out of wood from forest-free trees that grew up in or immediately around Atlanta, GA...the home of their makers.
