The Kisiwa’s little brother, this little wooden cruiser skateboard is the shortest board we make.
We call it a cruiser board – it’s actually closer to a “mini longboard” as opposed to most of the tiny plastic mini-cruisers you see on the streets these days.
Handbuilt by us in Bristol, UK, for nipping around town, cruising to work in style, or even slashing up some lines in your local old-school bowl.
Small but perfectly formed, the Swift’s surfboard-inspired shape makes for a much easier ride than most mini cruisers.
For starters – it’s wide!! Way wide!! At a fraction over 9,” the Swift gives you a ton of space for your feet, belaying it’s pocket-sized length.
Another thing that’s awesome about this board is the wheelbase. Over 20″ long, it’s way bigger than most other mini cruisers, which gives a lot more stability and friendly ride.
Those enormous wheel wells (borrowed from the Kisiwa) allow us to mount huge wheels – up to 75mm – on very narrow trucks, without fear of wheelbite, and keeping a relatively low ride height.
This also creates a super smooth ride that steamrolls it’s way over anything, and still turns tight if you lean on the rail. There aren’t many cruiser boards out there that can take a 75mm wheel and be happy abut it…!
The Swift skates like a small longboard, in a mini-cruiser sized package… it’s a unique little ripper!
Handbuilt in Bristol
We handbuild these boards ourselves one at a time in Bristol.
Each deck is vertically laminated from hardwood stringers, creating a stiff, responsive and natural flex. We cut these a little thinner than the Kisiwa to compensate for the shorter wheelbase.
You can check out more about how we build these decks in our workshop section.
Carve it up in style…
Each Swift is a very beautiful creation… but it’s made to be skated, not hung on the wall!
The Swift is the perfect tool for getting around town… short, light, nimble, stylish, and 100% handbuilt in the UK. Perfect for cruising, carving and bombing around the city streets or beachfront in style!
You can choose between a laminated or solid hardwood nose and tail block at checkout.
