Classic Rider - Blackwood ShortboardThe Paper Rain Project
Made to order in our workshop, please allow ten working days for production.
Sustainably sourced blackwood with laser-etched grip pattern 'Kete' by Hannah Batty. Each board is unique - boards will vary slightly due to their handcrafted 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, blackwood is the perfect material for our rideable range. This board is our take on the retro skateboard shape. With a soft nose, slight concave to the board and a smooth angling tail, our classic shortboard is made for comfortable cruising. Each board is fitted with a steel nose and tail guards for greater strength and protection when riding.
Custom laser engraved text is also available to personalise your 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
Optional of custom etching: $45 on the ground side (for name)
For each board sold a native tree is planted, helping to restore and maintain New Zealand's environment.
