Just a week after their return from ISPO Munich, Luca Longboards opened pre-orders for their 2019 line-up. New features include updated graphics, 360° urethane sidewalls and a new weight reducing core. Order before March 10th and you’ll save between €40 – 55 depending on the model.
We are very excited to sit down with Jeff Vyain the owner and innovator of Pantheon Longboards to discuss the ups and downs of being a longboard company. Jeff has been skating since he was a kid, got into both downhill and freeride and now makes his own boards for everyone to shred. He offers a wide range of experience and we appreciate him giving us some time to pick his brain. Remember to follow Pantheon as their 2019 line up is just around the corner.Continue reading →
Ivey longboards is a one man team led by Sam Ivey. With a heavy background in both freeride and downhill, he has been working on creating a lineup of boards to fit everyone’s taste. I’ve spent the last couple weeks on his personal board to see what made his boards so different.
We recently sat down with Tanner Morelock to talk about Descent Boards and what they are all about. Tanner currently rides for Descent, Venom and Rogue as a formidable force in the downhill scene, definitely pushing the limit of the slalom style. He helped design for Choomah and Skyline 1 with Sanctum Collective. Tanner helped the design the BIG RED board shape and the first concave with w concave, flares, rocker, and steeper concave for Descent. So Tanner isn’t new to building boards and running a brand.Continue reading →
Rayne’s popular dancer lost some weight over the holidays – the Whip 41 now features Deelite construction in a limited-edition collaborative release with Motion Boardshop.
Only 25 decks were made for this limited production. If you’re keen to have a lightweight dancer in your lineup, grab one immediately. As of the date of this writing, Motion Boardshop only shows 3 available. Rayne could have more, but they don’t list their stock.
