THE HISTORY OF EARTHWING
Earthwing Skateboards started in the mid 90's while I worked at PSNY Skateshop in 6th and west 4th in NYC. This was just a hobby for a curious tinkerer that loved skateboarding. The idea started by shaping broken shop snowboards into little slolom and carving decks. Man, these things could haul serious ass. When you find yourself having so much fun with something you made, it gets addictive, and you get even more curious. You start chasing the thrill by trying new things, and exploring new ideas. When I ran out of snowboards to butcher, I started researching constructions, core and composite materials, processes, presses...the list goes on. What is the best possible way to make a skateboard? Just Look at a tennis raquette, a kayak, a golf club, even a snowboard. Wood may be cheap, but it is primitive. I grew up on wood, there is nothing wrong with it, but there are so many possibilities with advanced composites. I felt it then, and I feel it now - YOU DESERVE MORE.
