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 →
We recently sat down with Tanner Morelock to talk about Descent Boards and what they are all about.

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.
