We are fine lines.
The skater-owned and operated skateboard agency, dedicated to skateboarding and deeply rooted in its culture.
Skateboarding is our main expertise and tool of choice to connect with a high-value young demographic. We offer integrative brand communications tailored to our clients needs from consulting to strategic conceptualization, creative development, all the way to detail-oriented implementation and transparent scaling.
In contrast to the majority of marketing agencies, we as skateboard agency are highly specialized in theme and more generalized in scope of marketing functons. By offering a wide spectrum of communication services, we are able to connect brands with skateboarding in an authentic manner down to the last detail.
In order to connect the appropriate audience with the appropriate message at the appropriate time, we subscribe to these three fundamental principles on our checklist:
United by our dedication to skateboarding. Diversified by our personal individuality.
