Chapman has been producing skateboards for over two decades. This makes them the longest-standing northeastern skateboard company, in addition to one of the few remaining places where you can produce a deck that comes with a “Made in the U.S.A.” emblem. Their Deer Park, NY headquarters doubles as something of an east coast skateboard museum. Everything from the first Zoo decks, Supreme artist series boards that resell for thousands of dollars, to one-offs that were never mass-produced line their walls. If someone started a skate company on the east coast these past twenty years, they probably dealt with Chapman.
We asked Gregg Chapman, one of the company’s founders, to take us on a tour through the building, and share the stories behind a select few of his favorite boards.....

So incredibly lucky to have the honor of working directly with the New Museum to create a collaborative cruiser deck in the shape of their iconic building on the Bowery, in NYC.
"One Skateboard At A Time"
In this short film, we set out to document the complete skateboard production process, to celebrate the people as well as the craftsmanship involved in the making of each of our decks. From the raw maple veneer, to hitting the streets, every hand involved makes #ChapmanWood special.
Made in the USA since 1991.
