Bo Peep – This weekend!

Lush Longboards

31May

It’s on – this weekend!! We’ll be there with a stand full of demo boards, trucks and wheels for sale on the left hander – stop by and say hello!

Here at HQ, team Hawaii are packing the stand up and getting the ISM juggling dialled in for the weekend…

We like concave

24May

In the beginning (over a decade ago… time flies!) pressing boards with concave was a big deal for us. Probably because we were pressing birch using a hand-tightened wooden press in a damp Sheffield cellar…

Now we have the use of a huge hydraulic ram, thinner veneers of Canadian maple and fibreglass, CNC steel moulds, and super-strong epoxy glues. All combined means we can get some pretty cool shapes compared to the old days…

History lesson over, here’s a few concave shots from a few of our more recent deck offerings. Enjoy!

Wizard – super deep “pool” concave, with a flat section in the middle…

The “powder nose” on the Stallion…

Check the hips on the Vandella’s radial concave…

Nuff concave on the front of the Sequel!

This is the really cool part of the Antuna… a sudden deepening of the concave at the rear of the standing platform, thanks to a clever bit of mould positioning and rail profile… Sick back foot placement.

Check the boards pages or the Vandem Flickr for more!

So… we’ve finally given in to repeated customer request and relaunched our own online UK shop – HERE IT IS.

Our goal here is to provide a premium service for UK skaters who want to buy direct from us.

We are of course strongly encouraging you to buy from your local stockist wherever you can – find your nearest one here!

But if you can’t find what you need locally, or you just like the idea of buying direct from us, you now know where to come…

PS you can also talk about this on our new forum… here!
