Motherboards was conceived after a Denver-area Catholic mom with sons who liked to skate noticed something about most board designs: to put it nicely, they left a little to be desired. With themes that revolved around skulls, sex and violence, it seemed to this mom that there was an opportunity for a wider variety of design options. Sure, to a 14-year old boy a cool “skull” design is, quite literally, a no-brainer. So, how could she create a board line that not only appealed to skaters from a design perspective but also introduced more positive and thought-provoking themes without losing any “cool”? And from this, Motherboards was born.
Motherboards is a company dedicated to creating well-built recreational boards used on land, snow and water. The quality craftsmanship put into each and every product is just as important as the unique and uplifting—and sometimes eye-opening—custom illustrations that adorn each piece. Motherboards is the first and only company in the U.S. dedicated to bringing a positive and Catholic-focused message targeted to teens and young adults who like to board. It’s a not-so-subtle nod to an alternative way of thinking that is sorely needed in today’s crowded landscape of negative and dark messaging. Going negative is easy, so we decided to do it the hard way.
Motherboards is based in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado along with its sister company, Full of Grace USA.
