Vikings of SkateVikings of Skate,
We caught up with Brighton based Vikings of Skate at The Ledge trade-show to tell us all about how the company started and what their vision is moving forward with the brand.
The name Vikings of Skate was chosen by founder Al Welsh because of his Scandinavian blood and fearless skater attitude. Al has a real love for the sport, he has skated with some highly regarded skaters back in the 70’s, like Jeremy Henderson and Dogtown Zephyr member, Shogo Kubo. Even the likes of Jay Adams and Micke Alba often rock their Scandinavian VOS t-shirts out and about.
Its clear that the vision with VOS was to create something new yet founded, genuine old school skate heritage, but fresh designs and quality products for today’s skate talent. The real difference with this brand, is the passion that has put in to the company and the products.
Currently the brand has eight styles of t-shirts available to purchase and a new range of snapbacks will soon go on sale. The t-shirts are made of the highest quality cotton jersey, the majority printed by hand and a number of the designs are even printed with eco friendly inks.
Our team’s personal favorite out of the VOS tee’s are; “Broken” & “Happy”.
