An ideal board for leisurely cruising the streets or for more strenuous sidewalk surfing, Seattle-based Erickson Longboards offer a smooth ride with a sustainable sensibility. Carved from fallen trees and reclaimed wood, the boards are incredibly strong and stable as well as easy on the environment.

Designed by adventurist Bill Erickson, the longboards are crafted from walnut and cherry trees sourced around central Missouri, hardwoods from Oregon and Washington as well as a run of limited-edition boards carved out of madrone, sycamore and elm.
