TimeShip Skateboard School was started in 2001 by Joe Lehm. Joe started skating in 1969 at the age of 8 and he started racing slalom & downhill in 1976 at the age of 14.
Timeship Skateboard School is at the forefront of skateboard safety. We believe that knowing how to stop or bail safely are the skills needed to be able to go big or fast. We always encourage wearing quality pads and a helmets are mandatory. We also focus on all-around skateboarding skills and the importance of learning the fundamentals of traditional skateboarding. Time and again we've seen good bowl or street skaters become great after developing skills in other skateboard disciplines like downhill or freestyle.
Since the school opened in 2001, we have put on over 50 sanctioned races, contests, and other events. Timeship team riders have moved on from these local events to compete in and win events all over the U.S., Canada, Europe, and even as far away as Australia.
Timeship has pioneered skateboard safety in many ways, including the development our state-of-the-art slide gloves. Our trademark slide gloves like Bear Paws and Tracers have helped riders push their limits by providing better protection for learning slides and training for races. Other innovations like Predator helmets and safety gear have been integrated into innovative products for riding, training and racing. Living in a skateboard paradise has certainly helped.
