History

Flip Skateboards originally started in the UK in the 1980's as Deathbox Skateboards (later to be named Flip in 1994). The original name 'Deathbox' is a term used for the swimming pool overflow channel in the form of backyard pool skating.

Flip moved from the UK to California in 1994, (although the team at the time, Geoff Rowley, Tom Penny, Rune Glifberg, and Andy Scott moved in 95) and went on to become one of the world's biggest and most well known skateboard companies.

Four members have won the prestigious Thrasher Skater of the Year Award: Bob Burnquist in 1997 (though he was sponsored by Anti-Hero at the time), Geoff Rowley in 2000, Arto Saari in 2001, and Mark Appleyard in 2003 and winning best street skater in transworld skateboarding magazine.

Flip has a team, with skate veterans such as Chris Sganga, AVB, Lance Mountain, street skate legends such as Geoff Rowley, and Tom Penny, (Arto Saari left the team and moved to the Alien Workshop team in 2008) and two legendary vert skaters by the name of Rune Glifberg and Bob Burnquist.

On March 7, 2007, Flip Skateboards amateur Shane Cross was killed in a fatal motorcycle accident in Melbourne, Australia. Ali Boulala was driving the motorcycle with Shane Cross on the back when the pair hit a curb. Ali Boulala was sentenced to 4 years in Australian prison for the accident. [Cite news
