The History of LIFE

After a lifetime of skateboarding, with the assistance of his family, Sam Koch opened his first retail skate shop and skate park in 2002. Having just gone through a season of a personal transformation and being given a second chance at life, Sam named his shop 'Life.' As Sam's business transitioned from a local skate shop to a manufacturing company focused on making high quality, hand-made skateboards, 'Life Skateboards' the brand was established in 2012. With more than two decades of woodworking experience and involvement in skateboarding and the industry, Sam has applied all of his knowledge & skill to make Life Skateboards what it is today!
