Back in 90s, I remember first hand when skateboarding started to gain mass appeal when the sport began getting airtime on cable tv networks like ESPN in the middle of the day. As a kid, the scene, clothing style, music and attitude associated with the sport was pretty appealing. Of course, I never became much of a skateboarder myself, unless you count playing hours of Tony Hawk on the Nintendo 64.

With that being said, here’s a long list of skateboarding slogans and taglines that I feel represent the sport and culture of skateboarding. I also share some “no skateboarding” slogans if you’re trying to keep kids off the parking lot or sidewalk of a property.

Skateboarding Quotes 

Skateboarding is more than a sport; it's an art and a lifestyle.

Skateboarding is more than a sport; it’s an art and a lifestyle.

Here are some quotes about skateboarding along with the intended meaning or lesson behind each quoted statement.

Tony Hawk: “I never got into skateboarding to be number one.”

  • Meaning: Tony Hawk highlights the importance of passion over competition. He emphasizes that his drive was not to be the best but to enjoy and embrace the sport for its own sake.

Lance Mountain: “I was a real skateboarder – not a gifted skateboarder. I represented that skateboarding was fun to do by being terrible at it.”

  • Lesson: Mountain’s quote celebrates perseverance and the joy of skateboarding, regardless of skill level. It’s a reminder that dedication and enjoyment are more valuable than natural talent.

Marc Johnson: “All skateboarding is putting ideas into action.”

  • Meaning: Johnson suggests that skateboarding is a creative process, where one’s ideas and visions are translated into physical actions and movements.

Rodney Mullen: “Freestyle was never cool.”

  • Lesson: Mullen’s statement, often seen as reflective of his own groundbreaking style, implies that true innovation in skateboarding doesn’t necessarily follow trends or seek approval but comes from authentic self-expression.

Jamie Thomas: “I think that skateboarding can absolutely help make peace…”

  • Meaning: Thomas sees skateboarding as a unifying force, capable of bringing people together across different cultures and backgrounds through a shared passion.

Lil Wayne: “It’s Physical and mental, you have something to focus on.”

  • Lesson: Lil Wayne emphasizes the comprehensive nature of skateboarding, indicating that it’s not just physically demanding but also mentally engaging, offering a focal point for energy and thought.

Bam Margera: “Skateboarding teaches you how to take a fall properly…”

  • Meaning: Margera points out that skateboarding is not just about succeeding but also learning how to handle failure and physical setbacks effectively, a valuable life skill.

Don Nguyen: “Skateboarding is an art, no sport. Skateboarding is a lifestyle.”

  • Lesson: Nguyen’s quote reflects the view of skateboarding as a form of personal expression and a way of life, rather than just a competitive sport.

Shaun White: “Skateboarding is training, but I don’t think of it as training. It’s fun.”

  • Meaning: White suggests that while skateboarding involves skill and practice, it is primarily a source of enjoyment and should not feel like a chore.

Tony Alva: “Skateboarding is not a team sport, and you don’t need anybody else to do it.”

  • Lesson: Alva highlights the individualistic nature of skateboarding, where the focus is on personal growth and expression rather than teamwork or competition.

I hope these taglines and slogans blend the essence of skateboarding culture with the iconic styles of Vans and Volcom, while giving a nod to the nostalgic ’90s skater fashion that I grew up with.
