better skating through chemistry
Composite panels used to surface wooden skateboard ramps are nothing new.
The basic formula has been in existence for over two decades; layers of paper are saturated with phenolic resin then pressed and cured. With Gator Skins, we’ve simply taken a proven product, applied superior chemistry and achieved a much higher level of performance. Our panels are formulated to provide a near perfect interaction with urethane wheels. Gator Skins grip when you need – and slide when you want, creating a control factor on tricks like reverts that is unlike any other surface you’ve ever ridden. Our resin, produced in-house, is the secret sauce that sets Gator Skins apart. We are able to customize it to exact specifications, which results in the optimum density, hardness, flexibility, and level of grip. These are the factors that determine not only the durability of the product but the quality of the ride.
Ramps and bowls that skate like ice rinks suck!
For the past 20 years, we’ve spent way too much $$ and time trying to mop the deadly high-sheen gloss off of skate ramps, only to end up with rolled ankles and broken wrists for a status quo product offered by the “establishment brand”. It’s time to change the game because skateboarding is the best damn thing in life and we deserve it!.
All Gator Skins Panels are 1/4″ thickness and are backed by a 5-year warranty
From the swamp to the tundra and everything in between.
We challenged mother nature to a fight with these panels
…and kicked her whiny ass.
