Black Rainbow #6 deck made by Alistair Morgan in Tasmania.
The deck is made from Canadian maple and Tasmanian Blackheart Sassafras. Not only is this deck made by an Australian craftsman, in Tasmanina, he has incorporated local ply.
We call this deck the Moneymaker. Based on a 80's concave and shape. 81cm long (32 inch) and 25.4cm wide (10 inch). Standard bowl concave, with beautiful wheel flares for wheel clearance.
This whole set up screams love. Whoever you are, this is the set up you have been waiting for. Love skateboard and want a one off masterpiece to display your devotion? Or do you want to be that skater with a Ferrari at the skatepark? Push to work and a board that will turn heads and start conversations?
Trucks are Ace AF155 in gold. Colour makes the blackheart pop, and is as gangsta af. The bolts we used are Independent gold hardware. Gold nuts blend into teh gold baseplate. Two bolts are full gold which pop on the black griptape.
Wheels are the delicious 60mm OJ Super Juice in green. We have used Independent bearings with spacers. Under the trucks we have used risers to protect the deck. Under the truck is the signature of the maker and the number in the production. You are buying functional art!
Is it a skateboard? or a longboard? Or a cruiser?
We set it up to be everything. It excels as a bowl board in the skatepark and cruising around as a cruiser. The wheels are soft enough to skate on bike tracks, concrete, roads etc. It can be your skate to the shops board. You can chase your kids on their bikes on the bike track. You can carve banks and transition at your local skatepark. use it to check the surf in the morning. Pack it in your luggage when you travel. Hide it in the boot of your car for a romantic lunch time meet up, just you, the real love of your life (your new board) and a random piece of concrete, she will not judge.
We all talk about buying a locally made skateboard. Supporting real craftsman. Why does everything have to be made in China? Here is your chance to buy Aussie and make a difference.
