The Killing Floor skateboards is an independent skateboard company run by John Vitale, based in Portland, Oregon. John started the company after selling the skateboard shop he ran in Northern California. He felt that the industry needed a bit of a refresh as things had, in his opinion, begun to get stale.
The Killing Floor's graphics and apparel often reference or pay homage to music and musicians, even their name is from a Howling Wolf song.
The company is represented by Josh Anderson, Lance Chapin, Andrew Gray, Tino Rincon, Kyle Nickoshie, Daichi Ishibashi and Josh Love.
