FP Skateboards

 

High performance handmade composite skateboards.

 

 

Are you sick of mass produced skateboards? Are you sick of the manufacturers claims of stiffness and lightness and when you get the board it weighs a ton and has uninspired saggy flex and the dreaded torsional flex?

 

 So were we, That’s why we have created the 2012 FP High Performance Skateboards range. Boards designed for serious riders who demand quality. These are not toys. Built first and foremost to perform.

 

 Since the dawn of time skateboard and longboard builders everywhere have been striving to build light stiff and durable boards. Many have tried and many have failed. Some have succeeded but at the expense of cost or durability, for example carbon fibre foam core boards.

 

 Here at FP Skateboards we believe we have found the winning formula of materials that provides this combination. Our boards are constructed with a mixture of materials that are exclusive to FP Skateboards. So exotic and amazing are these materials that we have to keep them a secret, ssshhh!

 

 What makes lightweight boards so awesome? They carry less momentum. This means they require less effort from the rider to break out, drift and manoeuvre. Response from the board is increased, requiring less rider input. Slides become easy and controllable, giving you the confidence to hit every corner at 110%.

The Royale.

 

The Royale is a full on DH racing topmount. The layup features twin carbon fibre stringers. These stringers combined with the other materials come together to create a board that is ultra stiff , extremely durable and very light. The Royale can be compared to carbon fibre foam core boards in terms of performance but comes without the hefty price tag. The ultra stiff racing flex provides stability and confidence at speed. Response from this board is instant and unrivalled. The generous tub concave is complimented with a mellow trapezoidal W that extends from the back trucks to just behind the front foot.

N.S.F.

 

Evolved from the Royale comes the N.S.F. a symmetrical topmount freeride board. It features a shorter wheelbase but the same generous tub concave, with the trapezoidal W running the length of the foot platform, so its there whenever you need it. We’ve also dialled in a bit of flex for the N.S.F, but it’s still extremely firm and responsive. Large routed wheel wells ensure zero wheelbite.  Mind bogglingly light.

The Phat Drop.

 

Yes that’s right, it’s Phat! A symmetrical free ride oriented drop deck. It has a 1 inch drop with deep pockets and gas pedals at each end. Perfect to keep you locked in and to give you more control while doing big steezy slides. The Phat Drop also features twin carbon fibre stringers that provide a nice snappy flex to really bring the board to life. Did we mention it’s lighter than any drop board you have ever ridden?

Cheers Dave, yeah but you can tell your missus this one is different!  :-)

The Dave said:

Your shapes are rad, Steve. The NSF is an angry, angry board. I love it! The last thing I need is yet another topmount freeride board but this doesn't stop me scheming to get one....

hey steve just a quick question. First of all love the line and can't wait to have the money to get me one. My question is why no drop through boards in your line up ?

We wanted to have a new version of the freeride 2.0 in the line up originally. Unfortunately the new materials cannot be shaped into the extreme bends of the 2.0. We are always experimenting and trying new ideas. We are confident that the Freeride 3.0 will be in the lineup sometime in the future, when exactly, we're not sure.

We could have just made a token dropthrough board but thats not how we roll, we want to give people somethng that is not ordinary. The freeride 3.0 will be worth the wait, however long that may be

Dave tell her you have had it for ages works for me

Won't work. I'll get too stoked and forget. It'll be like "Hey! check out this amazing new topmount I bou......oh wait......damn."

(follwed by the sound of me being repeatedly stabbed with the NSF)

Hey steve did you get my payment?

Not yet mate, I'll let you know when it comes through
do the wheel wells clear 75mm wheels? or will they need risers
Yes, with most trucks. No

NATHAN, UR SO LUCKY, im already thinking of selling my 2 month old board and a 6month old ew supermodel and more to try and get enough money for an NSF or ROYALE, btw is there enough room to drill a shorter wheelbase of the royale or nsf? looks like a W would get in the way

Hey Johnny!

Yeah you could drill a shorter WB on the NSF and at the front of the Royale if you wanted to. We will Probably offer a 1" smaller WB option on the next batch of royales too

Hey steve, do you still offer the fibreglass/carbon fibre skinning for boards? i just wanna stiffen my rival up so i can use it for everything.

Cheers!
