Clown skateboards was founded in 2000, launching with an inaugural release of Banksy designed skateboards and legendary logo. They had one of the UK’s leading skateboard teams with Simon Skipp, Chris Oliver, Benny Fairfax, Garry 'Woody' Woodward, Mattias Nylen, Bryan Jones and Dom Henry. In 2005 the brand was put on ice with the aim of restarting at some point in the future.
In 2020 Clown came back with original team riders Skipp and Oliver on board along with Josh Cox. They also set up a CIC (Community Interest Company) called "In Action" which has done great work to help promote skateboarding, DIY projects, communities and much more.
