Ski season has started

It was one of these that got us started on the Nudie Boards adventure, so we've just declared the ski season open. Watch this space...

"In 1971, Tom Sims, a surfer and art/geology major at U.C. Santa Barbara who occasionally betrayed a slight Jersey accent, lived an easy, counterculture-type existence in those hills along that road and at the edge of that majestic body of water.

Often with surfboards in hand, Tom and friends would begin the descent from his treehouse residence, weaving rhythmically along the asphalt on long skateboards of recycled waterskis or solid wood planks hand shaped by Tom."
- SkateBoarder Magazine, 1978

Our Trucks

The Paris 180mm is the all-around and perfect any terrain truck. These are able to handle anything and everything you could possibly throw at them. The 180mm hanger is the perfect go-to size for most decks and compliments all riding styles. Like all Paris Trucks, the baseplate angle is 50 degrees, which provides the perfect balance between stability and maneuverability. All Paris Trucks are built with 90a Divine bushings.
