The Black Sand board, was inspired for all those black sand beaches we as a family visited and even in Tahoe there is one. We sanded down the wheels to give it that black sand look. Every board we make has some sort of story and we are excited for our skateboards to inspire your stories. Livin' the Life
The Black Sand and the Swell Brand is created from years of riding the streets of Santa Barbara and around Lake Tahoe. It all started in a garage and has now come to life for others to enjoy.
TRUCKS- Black hanger and base
- WHEELS-Black Sanded
- BEARINGS-Cool Grey ABEC 7 with high speed oil
BUSHINGS- Cool Grey
- BOLTS- Cool Grey
THE DECK: We start off with a high strength Polymer that has just enough Flexibility but not too much to so it will handle the daily use. It has a waffle non slip surface that never wears out. We remove the shine for a more matte finish look for an amazing appearance.
THE TRUCKS: are created out a the strongest 356 cast aluminum. We then take the trucks and color powder coat then for a durable long lasting finish.
THE WHEELS: are polyurethane wheels that are slightly larger than your typical 22" board so you can get over those small imperfections in the road. Size-59mm Softness-83A
THE BEARINGS: are one of our favorite part of the board. It may not seem like much, but the bearings are the heartbeat of the board. Having bad bearings is like putting bad gas in your car... it just doesn't run as good. Our bearings are Stainless Steel ABEC 7 the industries highest rating. We take these ABEC 7 bearings and pack them with high speed bearing oil for not only a smooth ride, but it will last through those dusty roads or even when you leave it on the lawn and the sprinklers hit it.
THE BUSHINGS: have a Durometer reading of 87a. That is a perfect amount of stiffness for those long fast downhill straightaways and yet soft enough to make some nice wave like turns.
THE BOLTS: are created from high tensile strength steel then painted to create a great color feature on your board. You wont need to worry about these bolts as we have made sure every part is perfect down to the last bolt.
