Blackwood Drop-through RiderThe Paper Rain Project
Made to order in our workshop, please allow ten working days for production.
Sustainably sourced black wood with laser-etching. Each board is unique - boards will vary slightly due to their hand-crafted nature and natural grain of the wood.
Sourced just 45km from our workshop and with a beautiful looking chocolatey brown colour, this hardwood is a stunning choice for our mini bullet boards and longboards. A super durable timber, black wood is the perfect material for our rideable range. We recommend the drop-through wine-barrel board for both beginners and more advanced riders. Our longboards are a medium sized board, making them ideal for cruising and commuting.
The drop-through trucks mean that your center of gravity is lower, making them super stable and allows these boards to support more riding styles. With a concave middle, these boards are designed to help secure your feet to the board, making turning easier because you can feel the heel and toe edge of the deck. Our drop-through wine barrel boards are fitted with a steel nose and tail guards for greater strength and protection when riding.
This board included custom laser engraving to personalise your board. We will etch your name or a message of the indicated areas of the rider or street side of the board.
For international riders, we recommend purchasing a board only and purchasing hardware for a full set up at your local skate store when your board reaches its new home, to reduce freight required. Any full set up boards purchased will come flat packed.
Optional: full set up
Includes personalised laser etching
For each board sold a native tree is planted, helping to restore and maintain New Zealand's environment.
