I set this site up to help those interested in getting into longboarding or e-boarding (especially the youthful older ones like me, who may not have skateboarded for a long time :->) and to highlight some of the less well-known small time longboard makers, including many Europeans, who are making this sport and pastime a real joy right now.
I have tried to capture all the various things I have learned from skateboarding and longboarding, push and electric, to help anyone else looking to take it up first time or come back to it – it is a lot of fun.
There is no commercial intent behind this site; this is just me rambling on and trying to help others (plus, I guess, a bit of vanity). I make no money from the site (my day job is as a founder and owner of a small tech company) and I pay for everything with my own hard-earned money; but I do get to test a lot, which is an cool upside. I have no sponsorships (not looking for it) nor am I an affiliate for anyone (not looking for that) and there is no advertising on the site (not looking for that either).
I am no longboard, or skateboard, expert; just someone who has come back to it later in life (a dad with three children, who thankfully, let me longboard with them) and learned again much on the way.
We live in London in the UK and longboard, both push and electric (not much skateboarding currently), around the local neighbourhood or when we go traveling around the world.
