The UK maker Sp8 Boards, with their interesting collection of decks and completes, including downhill luge racing boards.
I found another small European maker, the French company Alkamist Longboard, with some nice looking downhill boards and some very stylish wheels. I will have a look more at the wheels and am very tempted. Never been one for white wheels, but these are the first that got my attention.
The very interesting UK builder Trampa Boards, of Nottingham, who builds a multitude of custom street and all-terrain conventional longboards, e-boards, kite-boards and parts.
The USA maker Wild Monkey Racing, with their distinctive black maple downhill boards.
My Jungle deck arrived (as a Christmas present) from Sam at Jungle Longboards, based in South London, and a stunning deck is. Lovely custom veneer work on a stiff old style pintail; very much a traditional longboard and cafe-cruiser.
To keep with the jungle theme, I fitted Paris’ Adam Colton custom trucks. I was planning to fit some of my green Walzen Insul wheels but, in the end, preferred the 77mm purple Metro Express 78A wheels, running Bronson G3 bearings.
