Besides the desire to do a US tour, what prompted our idea to actually combine work with travel, was to skate on a fair produced Longboard and to find out who actually builds our boards.
After our trip to the motherland of Skate Sports, which only gave us unsatisfactory answers as either, no one knew, or cared to tell us, how these boards are produced exactly. We decided to put an end to our quest and build our boards ourselves!
Back home, we focused on the construction of the Shapes . We worked on the designs intensively, built them, tested them, and reworked them . In summer 2013, the first prototypes were finally ready for sale .
However, in order to be able to produce larger quantities, we wanted to outsource production in the long term to an external workshop. We looked for a company that gave us a high-quality production and offered socially conscious work opportunities.
This path led us to the co-op NEUSTART, with whom we have successfully worked since May 2014. Together with the ex- prisoners, who run the Carpentry workshop, we produce quality RUFFBOARD 's from discarded snowboards- 100 % fair produced. In Austria.
SAVE A HORSE - RIDE A RUFFBOARD .
Because everyone deserves a second chance!
