THE PLANK SPACE COLLABORATION

We handcraft stunning classic solid wood skateboards and longboards with a soulful aesthetic influenced by the roots of skate and surf culture.

We are looking for likeminded artists and designers to collaborate with on a range of limited edition rideable art boards for our Plank Space Collection.

Designs will be laser etched onto our decks, and each collaboration will be limited to 10 boards, with 25% of each sale going straight back to the artist. The artwork can be as simple or complex as you like. We'll take care of the details with our laser expert once we receive your artwork.

We'll make each one to order, choosing the wood that will best compliment the design, then hand shape the board, laser etch your artwork and seal the wood with Tung oil to make your artwork and the natural grain pop out of the board!
