Real Skateboards is in the deluxe distribution family of brands. Founded by Tommy Guerrero and Jim Thiebaud (formerly of Powell Skateboards) these folks track back to the roots of the sport. On 2/17/09, the company was lost in a bet to Giovanni Reda. New ownership lasted for approximately 4 minutes, before Peter Ramondetta nollie inward heelflipped the company back to its proper owners. So ride one of these Real boards and maybe one day you too can save someone or something in a bet.
