Flama Longskates are a hand made product; they’re made one by one and we don’t make mass production –although we try to always have a few decks ready to go. That is why we allow us a 15 days period to make your skateboard.
WEIGHT AND FLEX (up to 90kg)
Each of our models is hand shaped to a specific thickness (for riders up to 90kg). However, we can shape the board according to your own specifications. If you’re a big guy or want a stiffer board, just let us know!
Wood is the only material you’ll find in our decks. Our longskates are made with paulownia wood, the same timber we use in our surfboards. Paulownia is an environmentally friendly, fast-growing tree that gives a flexible and water resistant wood, which makes our longskates lighter than you would expect. Needless to say, all the waste produced during the building process is basically wood waste and saw dust, which are recycled into biomass or as organic substratum.
Flama uses a unique, selfmade paulownia ply, which combined with a hardwood stringer, gives the right strength-flex ratio to each of our decks. Also, the tail and nose blocks are made with differnt kinds of hardwood, to protect your skate from frontal and rear impacts.
All our skateboards are shaped by hand, just as we do with our surfboards. This means that every skateboard we make is truly unique, with its own personality. To certify its authenticity, each board comes engraved with its serial number and the shaper’s signature.
Yes! We use Silica sand mixed with varnish as deck grip. Why not? It’s almost transparent; it grips great but it won’t tear your feet soles; it’s completely harmless to the environment and it’s cheap!
Our longboards are made of solid wood and are coated with water-based varnish. This means that whenever you want, you can sand all the scratches, fill the dings with wood filler, and give a couple coats of varnish to have a brand new skateboard deck.
