Sunset Skateboard Company located in Costa Mesa, California was founded by long-time friends and California natives Jeremy Fissell & Scott Winn. Jeremy and Scott met while attending college in San Luis Obispo, CA in the early 90's and quickly discovered they shared a mutual love for all things skateboarding. Having both grown up in the late 70's and early 80's - Jeremy in Northern California and Scott in Southern California as a long time Sunset Beach lifeguard - the guys would often reminisce about their days spent bombing the streets on their old school boards, boom boxes in hand.
A lot of time has passed since then, but the guys' love for skateboarding has never waned. Jeremy and Scott reunited when Scott remembered how much fun they had "that one time in college" when Jeremy built a clear, plastic skateboard deck using some polycarbonate material. While Jeremy has spent the last 20 years as a successful entrepreneur & product designer, Scott has worked as a professional in the sales world. They made a commitment to combine their experience, love of the California lifestyle and passion for skateboarding and launched Sunset Skateboards with the Original Flare LED Wheels - a cornerstone of the endeavor.
Sunset Skateboards is committed to designing and manufacturing high quality products. Sunset embodies the California lifestyle and enables skaters to express themselves by building their own custom completes.
While most other inexpensive decks are made with ABS plastic, Sunset Skateboard decks are constructed of water-clear polycarbonate (PC) plastic. The resin has special UV inhibitors to help it weather outdoor conditions. The plastic is the same material used in high-end medical equipment and bulletproof glass.
Sunset Skateboards designed the Original Flare LED Wheels. These motion-powered, multi-colored wheels light up without the need for any batteries and are rated to last up to 100,000 hours. That’s a lot of skateboarding. 59mm x 45mm cruiser, 54mm x 33 mm street and 65mm x 45mm longboard wheels are available. Accept no substitutes or copies when selecting LED skateboard wheels.
