to the Future“
surf and skate
Inspired by the movie „Back to the Future – One“ we started to build square skateboards in the beginning of 2013. Since we are pretty passionate about the spirit of the early days of surfing and skating, we love the message of the movies skate-scene: If you need to, you can skate on pretty much everything. Even a simple piece of rectangular wood. Surfers back then did the same to survive days without waves. They wanted to have fun, so they invented the skateboard. It was this simple piece of wood with wheels, that feed their surf appetite. What a simple and great invention! As we are designers, we aim to make our simple pieces of wood as beautiful as possible and since we are skating for decades, we even want them to perform! So, since the day Marty Mc Fly invented the first skateboard in 1955, we are keen on keeping up the tradition of handcrafting the most beautiful, most disctinctive and functional side walk surfboards til today.
