Alien Workshop was born Oct. 1990 from the concept of creating a different type of skateboard company. From inception, Alien Workshop’s approach has always been to operate on its own terms, allowing the deliberate isolation of its Ohio based HQ to inspire and influence its style and personality.
The Alien Workshop team riders are as diverse and individualistic as the company’s identity. Rob Dyrdek was their first team rider and has been with the company since the first spark of ideas. Anthony Van Engelen, Heath Kirchart, Grant Taylor, Jason Dill, Omar Salazar, Dylan Rieder, Mikey Taylor, Tyler Bledsoe, Jake Johnson, Gilbert Crockett, Kevin Terpening and Donovon Piscopo form the elite team that carry the Workshop torch to the streets worldwide.
With 21 years of history and quality products under its belt, AWS continues to push and produce innovative skateboards and accessories with the same passion and drive as the day it was founded.
