Dieta Skateboards is a company that puts aside the current ideas within the skateboarding industry and focuses on what is most important to us; friends, family, and having a good time. We work for what we have and we enjoy it to the fullest. This is our way of life. This is Dieta.
Made In America – Why It’s Important to Us.
A lot can be said about products that are made in America. You can say that these products are better, stronger, and have a higher standard for quality. But when you set aside the physical traits that these products maintain you can find something that goes a bit deeper. By manufacturing products within your own country you are supporting the wages and lives of the hardworking men and women who surround you. Then, when these products are purchased by the public, that support doubles. At Dieta we are truly working-class skaters who have to work as hard as we can to live and get by. Not only do we want our skateboards to be the highest quality, we want to make sure that those manufacturing them are taken care of as well.
Our boards are pressed, cut, and screened in Elmore, Alabama by South Central mfg. (run by skateboarders) that has been making quality skateboards for over 20 years. We make our wages off our day-to-day work and put just about everything we make from this back into the brand and into the community. With the corporate influence that is becoming more and more prevalent in skateboarding, we feel that someone needs to stick to the grass-roots of what skateboarding truly is. We represent everyone out there who is trying to roll around on a skateboard for as long as they can because it isn’t a sport, it’s a lifestyle. And that is what Dieta is, a lifestyle, your routine, your daily regimen.
