Tui - Recycled Wine-barrel Art BoardThe Paper Rain Project
Recycled French Oak wine-barrel with laser-etching & gold/silver leaf.
Approximate dimensions: 175mm wide x 750mm tall.
These longboards are hand made in New Zealand using recycled French oak wine barrels sourced from a number of awesome local wineries. Hand-built in an old cherry farm's pack house, each deck takes several hours to craft. (Read more about our recent Kickstarter campaign here)
This hand-built board is our take on the retro skateboard shape. With a soft nose, a slight concave to the board and a smooth angling tail, this board is made for comfortable cruising. Rideability: This is our signature board shape which is usually used for artwork or as a collectable, if a regular rider, we would recommend purchasing the drop-through.
Sometimes, during the manufacturing process, we make boards that are slightly slimmer in the body, these are often used as art boards. If you would like a rideable board, please specify when you make your order so that we can ensure that your board is up to our riding specs! Otherwise, all art boards are for wall-hanging only and may not withstand a thrashing!
This board will give a donation from every sale to Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary - situated at the head of Picton harbour. Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary aims to protect and enhance our unique New Zealand wildlife, so they can be appreciated by all and are a volunteer based organisation. A project for the community, by the community.
Our #FraminghamUnderground Exhibition will run from 9th June - 16th July. Tui is an open edition board and can be dispatched at any time. Read here about getting your board from us to you.
