Adhoc is an international artist network of illustrators and designers known as the Adhocrates Collective. Our brand, Adhoc Skateboards, is the result of bringing together like-minded individuals who share an inner-drive to think differently. What was once a creative hub and workspace in Vienna, Austria is now a global network of resident artists, guest designers and professional skaters.
Our factory partnered with the Adhocrates so that artists such as Lilo Krebernik could design skateboards for skaters all over the world. In an effort to support the creators of today and encourage the ones to come, Adhoc Skateboards gives aspiring artists a platform to exhibit their work on a global scale. In helping us create our factory brand and an international network of skate teams, artists receive a percentage of each deck sold featuring their design.
