Handmade in Bristol

Our longboards marked “Handmade in Bristol” are just that – handmade by us, right here in Bristol, UK.

They are pressed, cut, shaped, printed and finished, one at a time, by hand, by skaters for skaters.

No giant CNC robots, no mass production, no faceless factory floor… just a love for skateboarding mixed with a lot of sweat, sawdust and elbow grease.

We’re carefully selecting materials based on performance and aesthetics, but also on environmental impact and sustainability of production.

We started Lush Longboards in a Sheffield cellar, every board made by hand. We are going back to our roots as a brand and a business by hand crafting longboard skateboards, built with passion and now nearly two decades of experience.

Each deck is it’s own story, and every one is unique.

Pressing

Our boards are laminated using time-honoured joinery techniques from a selection of hardwoods. The resulting blanks have the perfect blend of strength and natural flex.

Cutting

Everyone loves a CNC machine… but using one here would miss the point. We cut everything by hand and eye to templates and jigs, relying on hand tools and the shapers eye to produce the profile and shape that we need.

Sure, it takes longer… but a robot can never replicate the love and care that a human being can put in.

Screening

We use our screenprint setup to apply simple graphics to each deck – again, done entirely by hand, one at a time.

Finishing

Every board is hand sanded and finished with multiple coats of super-tough protective laquer to keep the weather out and enhance the natural wood grain.
