Black longboards has been a wee bit busy designing new models, setting up our “completes” section on the site, and we just finished up with the Arizona Bumblebomb event. Thanks to John “Jerzey” Jackson of Arizona Slide Labs for setting that event up. Congratulations to Josh Wright for winning our Model ‘O’ in the slide jam.
Featured here is a sneak peek at Model ‘X’. It is very exy with a capital ‘X’. It features kicks on each end with all the right curves. It is 41 inches in length and 10 inches wide with 30 inch wheel base. It has medium-high concave and medium camber.
Model ‘S’ for Surf board is also on the way. It looks like it was made for the concrete wave in your hood.
The fun doesn’t stop there, a downhill board is also in the works.
Our local riders, Davis and Collin, are busy testing these out so look for it on the site sooner than later skater. In the meantime you can always wet your whistle with the our classics.
Spread the stoke and stay tuned…

We love charitable people, which is why we are super excited to be a part of two amazing charities set up by extremely generous and kind people.
The first auction takes place in good ol’ Queen Creek, Arizona. The cause is for two adorable children who suffer from a very rare disease called Leukodystrophy. A lot of great people have come together and put together a large event featuring a 5k run, breakfast, and silent auction which will include one of our boards. To read more about these kids in need of love and support go here.
The second auction is sponsored by our favorite photographer who has more than supported our business, Zeffler Photography . Zeffler Photography is located here in Mesa Arizona, but they are taking their good name to Africa where children are in need of a lot of love and basic essentials like SHOES. Something we take for granted. They will be hosting an online auction starting February 29th. One of our original flat boards will be auctioned here along with some other amazing goods. This auction will last for a week and have tons of great stuff to bid on. If you can’t make it you can always donate through here. Give a little, give a lot, but start this year out right by giving something.
Stay tuned for the link for this online auction.
Barrett Jackson is known for being the “world’s largest collector car auction.” It is pretty much a venue full of sweet rides. It seemed appropriate to show off one of our boards at such a classy place in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Our board was amongst great company with all things on wheels. We teamed up with Driftwood Cruisers to debut our Model A board. This board features our Mac Ebony bamboo with Randal Trucks and black Divine wheels.
