Who is Red Panda Boards?

We are a family-owned, family-run skateboard company.

Launched by our founder, Chris Dalton–a husband, father, son, author, illustrator, and skater–Red Panda Boards is dedicated to providing top-shelf designs and skateboards that parents would love buying for their kids, teenagers would be proud to skate, and adults would want to leave work to skate.

As a company, we believe in bringing balance and joy to all of life through skateboarding and art. The Red Panda, our mascot and logo, is a blend of balance and joy: lively, fun, fearless, and joyful–the personality traits all skaters need to have.

No AI art here.

We design and draw the decks. Period. No computer generated art allowed here.

We take pride in using our God-given talents, and going from sketch to final design without the help of an algorithm.

Our motto:

“The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.” – G.K. Chesteron

A lot is on the line for families and Americans right now. Stable homes, consistent work , childhood innocence, and more is endangered.

We believe it can all be restored: it will just take balance and joy.

What inspires us?

A few things: my frustration with the boring or explicit designs on boards, my love for the sport of skating, a passion for illustration, and a desire to create inventive, hand drawn designs for kids, teenagers, parents and grandparents.

What type of boards do you use?

Red Panda Boards use 100% Canadian Maple and pressed at the source into modern shapes. The boards are strong with massive pop that skateboarders of any skill level will enjoy. Graphics are printed by hand in Denver, Colorado. BoardPusher uses high grade inks to create the most vibrant colors possible creating a professional level skateboard with unmatched quality.

Do we help the environment?

As Christians, we believe that the earth was created for man and to be taken care of by man. Which is why we partner with to plant a tree for every custom skateboard purchased through

So, purchase Red Panda Boards decks knowing you are helping keep our forests alive.
