Walthamstow-based Yes Fam Skateboards started life as a piece of enthusiastic London street slang screened onto stickers that quickly became ubiquitous at every skate park and on every street sign in the metropolitan area.
As origin stories go, Yes Fam Skateboards’ is about as organic as it’s possible to be with Walthamstow OG Paco eventually giving into repeated suggestions from sticker fans that he ‘should start a brand, or at least screen Yes Fam onto t-shirts’.
Thus, one of London’s newest and most grass roots skater-owned skateboard brands was born, and the distinctive Yes Fam box logo now adorns a range of skateboards and soft goods to complement the original and omnipresent stickers.
“you’re not going to need to explain what board brand you’re riding here to anyone with eyes in their head”
Since branching out into hard and soft goods, Yes Fam have assembled a team of often-overlooked UK rippers, with Chris Oliver, Jak Pietryga, Kelley Dawson and Mancunian Tyrone O’Hanrahan currently constituting the Yes Fam team.
This Yes Fam yellow logo deck comes in at a respectable 8” inches in width on a symmetrical popsicle shape with a mellow concave, making it suitable for most types of skating. With the unmistakable Yes Fam logo emblazoned across the full length of the board’s 14 inch wheelbase, you’re not going to need to explain what board brand you’re riding here to anyone with eyes in their head.
Yes Fam is currently distributed in the UK by skater-owned outfit SHUK Distribution who carry the full range of Yes Fam skateboards and soft goods.
