Longboards are great for cruising streets and parks and can also be used for short distance commuting. We got into longboarding back in 1995 as the first wave of modern longboards became available over here, now the sport has come on a long way with many new companies spring up and an ever increasing amount of gear available and many competitions and races organised all over the country.
We keep in stock the basics to get you moving as well as more high tech kit.
For prices please call us.
Fiberflex boards have been in production since 1965 and the name will be familiar to anyone who skated in the 70’s.
The new longboard decks are vertically laminated wood between two layers of fibreglass and come with die cut griptape.
Other shapes and reissues of the original shapes in the “Bowtuff” construction are available occasionally.

Because of the longer wheelbase trucks need to turn quickly and also be stable at speed. Although you can use standard trucks with wedged risers a truck with an altered kingpin angle will work much better.
Designed in the UK by Gavin at Surrey Skates these have become our favourite longboard truck. Inexpensive and very tunable with lots of different bushings available. 177mm wide.
The original longboard truck. Now available in three widths and slower turning downhill version.
Dan Gesmer’s revolutionary truck uses steel springs instead of urethane bushings as it’s turning medium giving great response and snap.
