about ŁiChii Boards
Welcome to ŁiChii Boards - a craftsman skate shop. Founded by Lydell Mitchell, a long time skater, who also manufactures all boards from beginning to end. Wood veneers (Bamboo and Maple) are supplied from Canada and all decks are hand pressed and carved in Albuquerque, NM.
Lydell Mitchell is Diné and a member of the Navajo Nation. Born in Fort Defiance Arizona, he was raised in Albuquerque New Mexico. As an artist and musician, Lydell earned a bachelor's degree from UNM in photography. He started riding skateboards at 10 and hasn't stopped since - it's the closest thing to flying you can get without leaving the ground.
