From a tiny workshop in Key West, we are making the most unique, one-of-a-kind longboards from 100% reclaimed and salvaged hardwoods.
Why? Because, no matter where it comes from, salvaged wood is textured with history and waiting to serve again. Finding the woods we use is a treasure hunt, but we love cutting into a battered, dusty old beam to reveal the brilliance inside. Salt, weather, rust, fire and oil season antique woods over time, and hint at the characters who have stepped, lived and loved on them. Maybe a walnut or hickory floorboard was tapped by a plantation owner’s walking stick, burned by cigar ash, or spilled on by Papa Hemingway or Jimmy Buffett here in Key West. While each piece of wood contains history and stories, the best part for us is producing the most unique, handmade, one-of-a-kind longboards available anywhere in the universe.
