5 Days of Ohio: Loyalty to Fickle Skateboards

fickle

This is day 3 of 5 Days of Ohio posts – for no particular reason. This came in from reader Jeff Haynes:

When I think of Ohio, I think of G.S.D., Donnie Humes and Smelly Curb Zine, the Dayton Visitor’s center, and most recently Fickle Skateboards. What makes this Cincinnati skate “company” different is that Lew Ross is known to drive to Canada to pick up veneers, presses his boards in his workshop, and does all production work d.i.y. from pressing to printing to shipping.

It looks like Fickle has been around since 2009. Even while early boards were made by Pennswood, the DIY spirit was still going in those early trucker hats that look like the logo was spray painted on with a stencil. Fast forward to today, and Everything is done in-house, even the pressing and screen printing of the boards.

Still need suggestions for 5 Days of Ohio.

Looks like the folks at Jolly Roger (Who?) road tripped in an easternly direction, eventually stopping at the Fickle facilities.

Old Lew isn’t afraid to trowel out the concrete, even when it’s cold outside.

Random kid from the Fickle crew.
