The 88 line - Back to my roots

The 88 line - Back to my roots

THE 88 LINE

It's been a long road here, and an awesome one. My new line of stock boards are designed and built to be affordable, functional, and beautiful. I've taken inspiration from my original designs back in 2013 when I was first starting out. I didn't really know what I was doing then; trying out different materials, figuring out what worked as grip, trying to find the right hardware. Fast forward 5 years and I'm comfortable saying I've mastered my craft. I took those original designs and made what I'd always hoped they would be.

NEW FEATURES

- Thicker carved grooves for better/longer lasting grip

- Clean designs for faster build time (more affordable)

- Premium trucks/wheels (smoother ride)

- Custom 9-ply maple (durable)

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

This means I can make something for everyone. You don't have to have a ton of money or wait 3 months to get one of my boards. I wanted to make something high-end and quality. Something made locally by someone you can actually see. Something that is made with care by someone who cares about your experience and wants to hear your stories.

I'm proud to be a part of your journey in one way or another. And I'm proud for you to be a part of mine. This whole thing has been about inspiration and passion. Trying to figure out how to make something I love a reality and work with other passionate people to make their vision into a reality as well. So, buy an 88... buy a custom... or just drop me an email with your story or inspiration. We're all just along for the ride. I want to be a part of yours.

Alex Solis Collab!

Alex Solis Collab!

My collaboration with the crazy talented Alex Solis is almost here! We worked together to create this awesome collectors board that speaks to the state of our future, and just looks badass. Alex pretty much killed it on the first draft, but we bounced back and forth tweaking the design to make sure it had a lot of grip and a smooth ride. We're only making 25 of these, and each one is handcrafted, hand painted, and made to order. Again, so stoked to work with Alex, and make sure to give him a follow @alexmdc ... Grab one before they're gone. It goes live today at 3pm CST.

The J2 BEACON goes to SPACE!

The J2 BEACON goes to SPACE!

If you haven'ts seen it yet, I've been working with Lost in Space and Legendary on a collectors edition board, the J2 BEACON. And given the subject matter, I wanted to doing something special with it. It took a lot of research and effort, but I actually sent this thing to the brink of Earth's atmosphere on a weather balloon! The balloon almost popped during launch, the flight went off course, it landed 100 miles further than expected, and it got stuck in a tree, BUT the footage was golden and worth all the trouble. You can watch the descent on my Instagram, and buy a piece of history above. Definitely going on my resume!
