Tony Alva is one of the most legendary names in skateboarding! Tony is regarded as a pioneer of vert and pool skating and his influence has helped shape the skateboarding industry today. All the way back in 1972 he became part of the legendary "Z-Boys" skate team. Nowadays, the skateboard decks from Tony's company "Alva" continue the old-school skateboarding heritage with shapes and graphics that are reminiscent of boards from the 70s and 80s.
Skating keeps you young, and an excellent testament to this is that Tony himself is still a daily skater at 57 years old. Respect!
The Alva Skateboards Team
The current Alva team includes Desmond Shepherd and Joshua Forsberg, two young rippers who have earned their place on the team thanks to their veteran-level skate skills.
