Teardown Tuesday: Serpentagram Black Drop Through Longboard

Teardown Tuesday: Serpentagram Black Drop Through Longboard

When it comes to drop through longboards, it’s hard to deny that the Serpentagram Black is pretty badass. We took the timeless skateboard graphic trope of snakes, and turned it to a twin tip tangram of an ouroboros (a snake eating its own tail) and applied that to a symmetrical seven-ply, Canadian maple drop through […]

A LITTLE HELP

A LITTLE HELP

NOTHING LIKE A LUNCH SKATE SESH

SKATER’S HEAVEN

[vimeo 91085172 w=2000 h=500]   What if everyone disappeared off the streets, freeways and sidewalks so you could skate or longboard wherever you wanted? No cars. No people. No cops to ticket you or take your skateboard. No bicyclists riding on the damn sidewalk where you’re trying to longboard. The Berrics and Red Digital Cinema, an American […]

TINKER TIME

TINKER TIME

This is our Product Developer Brock’s work/play/tinker space. This is where he bangs out the specs of all our  longboards, cruisers, and hardware. Throughout the day he can be heard drilling, pounding, and clanking around back here. Oh, the artist’s mind. How can it function in such chaos?

A CRUISER FOR THE UNIQUE
