CLOWN SKATEBOARDS was born in AUGUST 2000, launching with the inaugural release of the 'CLOWN BANKSY TEST PRESS' series, two skateboard designs and their legendary logo. They had one of the UK’s leading skateboard teams, with Simon Skipp heading up the crew and bringing onboard Chris Oliver, Benny Fairfax, Woody, Mattias Nylen, Bryan Jones and some amazing up and coming talent.
For Five years the Clown ethos of Skateboarding, Music and Art grew, releasing boards whilst hosting special one off deck designs and exhibitions from artists including MAU MAU, Adam Neate and Jock from 2000AD. The music programme saw collaborations with the country's finest in Hip Hop and Reggae. The mighty Clown Sound System ran club nights up and down the country, including roadblock sessions at Plastic People in London, notorious pirate radio takeovers, hosting the legendary Trouble on Vinyl stage at Carnival as well as releasing white label records making the crew a force to be reckoned with.
Operating from their East London headquarters, Clown were punching well above their weight. In 2005 however, it was consciously decided to put the brand on ice with the aim of restarting at some point in the future. They needed a well deserved breather as the past five years had been a crazy whirlwind.
That ice has now melted 15 years later, and Clown is back for 2020…
