Hand made, to order. Nothing less.
We use a unique blend of wood and composites to create our boards. Vertical laminate & triaxial glass are integral to the Boardlogic signature ride. Our philosophy ensures that we produce boards that are both incredibly stiff and actively suppress road vibrations. Unlike lesser companies, we have not compromised and taken the easy route and used carbon fiber. While it's incredibly easy to make a stiff board that's lightweight, the ride quality suffers dearly. An uncomfortable skateboard is a shit skateboard. If you fix the vibration issues associated with carbon boards, you've made a heavy board, defeating the purpose entirely.
If you don't know what you're doing, it's easy to fall into that trap. Boardlogic's business is being the best, and that means knowing the most. We don't err.
MAKING A DECK - Hand made in the uk
We press our boards, in house, one at a time in CNC machined molds under as uniform a pressure as practicable, something that very few can say. How does that make us different? It means that our boards don't suffer from the same internal stresses that plague other hand built companies. Our boards are built to last from their inception.
We control every step of production, we use CNCs we designed and built specifically for skateboards to make the molds, our own technology to heat them, our sweat to make the presses and our ingenuity to pull it all together.
What does all that really mean? It means that when we put a new board design out, we've thought about every millimeter.
Wood - We use sustainably forested, fast growing European wood in all our wood core boards. We will only ever use European softwoods that are traceably forested, processed and replanted. We firmly believe that every component we use should have as few travel miles as possible.
Composites - We use a variety of composite technologies in our boards. All are kept as local as possible and as green as possible. We use 55% biomass based epoxies wherever technology allows. As our lifecycle develops we're looking forward to expanding our composite range to include even more organic materials and even less traditional fibres.
Apparel - All our apparel comes from sweatshop free suppliers. Wherever possible we use organic cotton. When that isn't possible we're actively searching for reliable replacements. In recent years "Organic Cotton" has become so popular that many small companies exist based on lies. We will only ever use approved organic cotton suppliers that are transparent and 100% traceable. If we're not satisfied with their status, we'll find someone else.
We're proud of what we make, and we don't think that our boards will break, but at the end of the day it's a skateboard. If you have a problem with one of our boards give us a ring and we'll see what we can do.
"Why don't you offer a fixed/lifetime guarantee?"
Because that would be a lie. A skateboard is an item that breaks, eventually. A "lifetime" warranty just means if you don't use it much, it wont break. If you have a problem with a deck, contact us. Even if it wasn't our fault, we'll try and help mend your broken heart.
