Evolve Skateboards was born on the Gold Coast, Australia through sheer passion and obsession for finding the link between snowboarding, surfing and all things carving on land. After scouring the world for the best electric skateboard Evolve was developed out of the need for aesthetically refined, quality electric skateboards that were focused on the best feeling ride possible.
With a desire to successfully combine the best in longboard design with the most advanced electrical components we’ve spent 10 years meticulously considering, designing, testing and optimizing every part to produce what we believe to be the best electric skateboards in the world.
With more than 15 awards and service centres and distributors now servicing over 40 countries, Evolve Skateboards are enjoyed by a growing number of loyal customers around the world.
As our core business belief is to constantly ‘evolve’ we are excited to offer you only the highest quality products and accessories at an affordable price.
Founder Jeff Anning first discovered electric skateboards while checking the surf at his Gold Coast local in 2008. He immediately searched the internet and sought to buy the best electric skateboard he could find. While he enjoyed the concept of a new way to carve that was akin to snowboarding or surfing, it ultimately didn’t live up to his expectations as someone who had enjoyed skateboarding since he was a kid. The deck, trucks and wheels of other electric skateboards were low quality which severely affecting the quality of the ride.
After more research he uncovered an obvious neglect in the marketplace for one basic fundamental – a refined, high quality electric skateboard that was built using real skateboard parts for an unparalleled riding experience.
He set to work designing a mechanical set up that would attach to a quality longboard and spent the next 3 years reworking every part of the setup until he was satisfied he’d created the highest quality electric carving machine possible. He immediately had interest from around the world and subsequently Jeff and his wife Fleur sold their family home to manufacture the first batch of boards which sold out in under two weeks. Evolve was born but that wasn’t the end. The focus now is to keep producing the best and highest quality electric skateboards and accessories possible while Evolve-ing with advances in technology.
