I recently had the chance to talk with Bonzing founder Austin Graziano about the company, their boards and what makes them so unique. They’re out to make a positive impact on both the Earth and skate scene with an approach that is all their own. Timeless skateboards using skater supplied artwork and sustainable, FSC certified wood.
Wigga Skateboards is a longboard manufacturer based out of La Gaude in the southeast of France. Situated at the base of the French Alps, the town is located near some of the greatest destinations for gravity sports in the world. The company was established in 2013 but its founders were born and raised skating the area. With origins like theirs, they’ve developed some truly epic skill as downhill longboarders but even more impressive is their craftsmanship.
At Wigga their skills harmonize to make epic, futuristic skate machines. We caught up with Florent from the Wiggateam to learn more about Wigga and the Mini Zoulette Pro.

With the 2018 season coming to a close in the northern hemisphere, it’s time to send it in the southern part of the globe and start preparing for the next season after the snow melts and the landscape up north turns green again. Big Mountain Skate has already released the dates of its 2019 events to get us hyped for the next season with a new freeride event being brought to the table. All of these three events take place by the beautiful Austrian alps, so you can have a taste the amazing roads there.
