Santa Fe Springs, CA – Launching its first new line up in over three years, Speed Demons, an iconic late 1990’s skateboard brand known for it’s legendary Pro team and it’s iconic “Speed Demon” character logo/icon, is back with new skateboards this Fall.  Loyal followers of the brand will be able to get the new Speed Demon skateboards at retailers nationwide, such as Walmart and Target
