“Skatelite is obviously the icing on the cake. A ramp without Skatelite really isn’t much of a ramp. Thank God for Skatelite. It’s given me a lot of opportunity to do things that I never would have been able to do on my skateboard.” - Danny Way "I always look forward to competing on ramps with fresh Skatelite. Always the grippiest, fastest and smoothest.” - Elliot Sloan “I wanted to have a skatepark as soon as I started skating. It’s like every skateboarder's dream… of course I knew it was going to be Skatelite, there’s nothing else better than Skatelite.” -Leticia Bufoni “Skatelite is the best out there… we gotta go pro standards, we have to go with the top quality stuff and that’s why Skatelite is going on” -Bob Burnquist “The energy here is really rad and its fun. Good being able to
skate the ramp and you guys got Skatelite on it so it's perfect.” - Ryan Sheckler from The Sheckler Foundation

For more than 22 years, Skatelite has stood the test of time as the premium skate ramp surface used by the pros, the top action sports camps and the world’s most notable competitions. Weather resistance and nearly indestructible construction delivers a balance of speed and grip not attainable with any other surface. Smooth, fast, durable and aesthetically pleasing, Skatelite is the ideal surface material for indoor and outdoor ramps.
Skatelite’s parent company Richlite was founded in 1943 in the Pacific Northwest’s aerospace industry. Later, the unique paper-composite material was adopted by the commercial food industry due to its antimicrobial, east-to-clean and heat-resistant qualities, and in the marine sector, where its water-resistance was key. In 1998, the action sports industry took notice in skatepark construction, and the sport-specific brand Skatelite was born.
