What would you like your own custom board to look like? Would it feature absurd, abstract illustrations or street culture references perhaps?

How ever you want your personalised board to look, Skatehut is going to help 1 lucky winner and 2 runners up, make their dream deck inspirations become a reality!

We’re giving you the chance to ride a design you love and create some unavoidable skatepark envy at the same time in our #DesignADeck competition.

Submit your killer deck design by drawing it or alternatively use the entry template in Photoshop, Illustrator or your favourite image editing software. Either way you’ll need our #DesignADeck template which you can download (PC only).

As well as a custom designed 8” (wide) deck up for grabs, our first place winner will bag themselves:

1 set of trucks

1 set of wheels 

1 roll of grip tape

1 set of bearings

1 set of truck bolts

1 set of risers

1 universal skate tool

1 Skatehut t shirt

1 set of stickers

Two runners-up will also get their hands on a custom designed deck as well as a Skatehut t-shirt and some stickers.

You’re the artist so get your creative juices flowing! All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is come up with the sickest, slickest graphic composition that impresses the Skatehut judging panel – that’s…

Make it crazy, make it insane, or just plain mind blowing. Skatehut’s experts will be reviewing each and every awesome entry so unleash your artistic talent and run wild!


Anyone based in the UK! Just create your own awesome, signature board using our Design A Deck template. Good luck in nailing the deck design that will make it all the way to your favourite skate terrain.
