Even with the super-low price tag, Plan B boards can go head-to-head with any higher priced brand out there in terms of quality. This company was started in 1991 by a guy who was friends with a bunch of pro skaters. He talked his designs over with his buddies and worked on his boards, making some unique and creative ideas that no make Plan B boards stand out from all the rest. Because of the pro-skater connections, Plan B could also get high-level endorsements. If they're good enough for the top skaters in the world, you know Plan B boards have to have something going for them.
There's a sad part to the story. Just 4 years after starting the company, the creator died. In 1995, Mike Ternasky passed away. The entire line of Plan B skateboards had to be stopped because of legal problems relating to the name and designs of the boards. It took 10 years, but in 2005, Plan B skateboards were resurrected, and their new designs were hotter than ever. It was a welcome return. Many pro skaters, as well as regular Joe's hanging around the half-pipe, were happy when Plan B went back on the market, and celebrated by outfitting themselves with a nice new Plan B deck.
The quality of Plan B boards is just outstanding. The designs are colorful and unique. Among the most popular Plan B lines are the original Plan B and the Acid Trip. If the name gives you any idea, you know the Acid Trip is a wild-looking board. Every skater's board is an extension of themselves, and that's why we want a board that looks how we want it to look. Your board is a way of expressing yourself, and Plan B's wild designs offer something for everyone.
The folks at Plan B know that not everyone wants to get a whole skateboard. Some skaters prefer to buy a deck and outfit it any way they like. Because of this, they sell their decks individually so that you can go wild with your own design. You can get a Plan B deck, and choose your own hardware like wheels and the trunk. Plan B's decks are made with superb quality so that skaters will choose them over other brands. It's always good to know that you're building your own board on a high quality deck. If you try building your own board, you'll probably never go back to buying one. This is also the cheaper way to go. You always end up saving money when you create your own board, rather than buying one customized, which can be costly.
This innovative company is always experimenting and creating new designs. That's why everyone in the skating world is always waiting for Plan B's new designs to hit the market. They work hard to develop new designs and features for their boards so they can stay on top of the game. They are also committed to offering their fans a low price. Plan B is a company made by and run by hardcore skaters. They would much rather see their designs flying all over the skate parks of the nation than just watching their bank accounts grow.
