**All Rideable Boards are made-to-order**
Please note - Although our usual turnaround time is 4 weeks for made-to-order rideable boards, due to high demand and our hard-working crew taking a much deserved break, all rideable boards will be dispatched by 9th of March. Thank you for your understanding as these are all lovingly hand-made for you! Any questions please feel free to contact us.
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 rideable boards, including this shortboard. 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.
Optional: full set up
Optional: custom etching on the ground side (for name)
Optional: street-side laser etched design/artwork.
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.
For each board sold a native tree is planted, helping to restore and maintain New Zealand's environment.
