Madrid Skateboards has been an icon in the skateboarding industry ever since somebody decided to stick four wheels to a piece of wood. Jerry Madrid started out shaping surfboards in his parent’s garage in the late 1960’s in Norwalk, CA. With his passion for shaping boards, it is no surprise that his surfboard shaping turned into skateboard shaping. After bringing the first downhill concave to the market in 1979 on the Roger Hickey model, Madrid boasted a powerhouse team through the 80’s. Today, Madrid remains as one of the most well-respected and innovative names in the skateboard and longboard industry, with a talented team of skateboarders leading the way.
