1. Mark Skateboards 618 Tillery, Austin, TX 78702

Founded by a deaf former school principal dismayed at the inferior quality of his son's boards, Mark crafts stronger, more durable seven-ply decks out of sustainably harvested North American Maple, then silkscreens graphics by hand, as opposed to methods like heat transfer, which can weaken the boards, even if the person who's transferred is the 7', freakishly athletic Chris Bosh.
