Tony and Julien started out Dope Skateboards as a way to express their creativity and elevate their craftsmanship. Both coming from a rather manual background, Tony used to carve guitars and Julien is still working in creating skateparks, it made sense to take it a little further. They saw an opportunity to make money and actually live from this so they went all in and dedicated a lot to their vision. Producing beautiful skateboards that is. Inside and out. Inside because they are made with passion, locally and with French sustainable wood and outside because their designs are simply dope.. See what I did there? Anyway a friend of mine put me on them and we met at their workshop near Pertuis ( Pertuis cousin! ) where we sat down and talked about their brand, their vision and how they make those boards. Enjoy the edited version of our time together and make sure to hit them up, they have relocated in a dope workshop in beautiful Marseille, France.
