Skatement Speedboards, Aussie made, quality aussie materials. PERFECT for going as fast as humanly possible. All made from single layer veneer products, glues are epoxy based. If you're interested leave me a post and we can models and talk specs.
For all the boards i have made look at the link, remember the album goes from oldest photo to newest so make sure you look at the most recent shots

I am looking for $200 plus delivery for the basic materials of veneer and epoxy. Carbon fibre and bamboo cost me more so i will discuss them with individual buyers. $100 deposit and i start building.
The current models are
The BIPOLAR or PALINDROME
This is my bombing board of choice right now.
Here is a little vid i did of it when i first made it.
The Bird of Prey
Usually a 30 and 29 inch WB and 10 inches wide its a slick machine for race and free ride.
The Bird of Prey (EVOLVED) Rob McWhinnie model
This is the model i am most exited about right now. It's based around the Bird of Prey with some Rob McWhinnie inspired tweaks. Reduced the wings down but keeping the little hips for comfy grip and leverage, and best of all it has a 9mm drop just in the front. Locking that front foot into a sweet little pocket, I just heard from Rob and Maga the other day and he plans to race this one in South America, "its light stiff and responsive" and he hit 90 plus km\ph on a sweet desert run. The only thing is that i haven't had time to make one for myself, bummer!Here he is shredding on it with luca in Peru.
This shape is a bit old school, with large cut outs to eliminate any chance of wheel bite. The shape doesn't seem to be that trendy with the big companies right now but it's been in demand at the Skatement house lately.
No name, "but i like it"
Feedback from WAY older boards from Haggy and Jacko from one of the older boards i made haggy. "unedited".
By changing the materials to real maple, pine and bamboo veneers i have a lighter super stong product so i have made the changes he and jacko suggested
Just had a good little downhill session on the Skatement! Very cool. It is a pretty cruisy tucking hill, with a bit of railing around the corners. The board was great, concave real nice, very comfortable. The back foot positioning feels natural. I didn't have to do much back foot adjusting during the run. Which is opposite to the Killswitch, where I never quite know what to do with my back foot. Next thing is doing some sliding on it and I'll let you know how that goes.
Keep up the good work,
Yeah, went to pie this morning. Got the boot from the coppers after a while, but got a good few runs in. Good to hear it handles slides well. Hopefully I'll be able to hit some corners soon and I'll let you know how it goes!
Definitely, I really like the sharper edge of the concave. It allows you to lock in properly and find the edge when you want to. All in all, its a very fun ride.
yeah i had a look at his board it looked sick as fuck. the shape and concave felt very nice... it was pretty thick and heavy but im sure as you figure shit out with board building you can also figure out how to make em thinner and lighter without sacrificing strength. 10inches is a pretty standard size and most people love that size deck but yeah Haggy and i both prefer a narrow deck.
This gives you some idea of the boards and what people have thought of them.
Lastly the current decks weight between 1650-1900 grams depending on the size of the deck, much, much lighter than the board that Haggy and Jacko are reffering to.
