Homegrown in the sunny California streets, Welcome Skateboards channels the irreverent spirit of skater culture with its striking designs and boldly shaped decks. Jason Celaya established the label in 2010, aiming to rekindle the expressiveness and individualism he found missing from the skate scene. Today, the once-grassroots brand has become a mainstay among enthusiasts and professionals for its high-performance decks in various widths and functional shapes, further distinguished by Welcome Skateboards’s maximalism. Eccentric colors and vibrant wood stains are central to the label’s aesthetic, along with ’80s goth and new wave–inspired iconography. Each board features hand-drawn illustrations of otherworldly creatures, strange ghosts, and demonic entities. Welcome Skateboards creates boards for aficionados of the unorthodox.
