Some are churned out by people whose only connection with the skate world is the factory they make a living in, whilst others are made by guys who leave part of their soul in the decks they create. It's why our limited edition Small Fry boards are individually crafted by Chris White and the crew at Hurtle Skateboards in Devon.
Each limited edition run is individually handmade, unlike a lot of custom builders they use only the best quality Canadian Maple. The maple veneers are pressed by themselves, and are pressed one time to insure contours are consistent on every deck. They are then glued and placed in their custom made press for 24 hours. Once out, there is a 72 hour curing time before they are individually hand cut. They are then put through a meticulous process of hand drilling, routing and progressive sanding before being finished (by hand) with a biocide-free, natural based, UV-protection oil.
By the end you have a deck that is not just functional but a thing beauty, enhanced with the knowledge that genuine craftsmen who live and breath skateboarding have made them. We'd have it no other way, quality is key and we guarantee once you get on one of these you will notice the difference. Hit the shot below to shop.
