One of the main advantages of designing and making custom skateboards is that we get to work with a lot of brilliant people to create something special for them. Sometimes, we step beyond the traditional skateboard deck and find ourselves developing something a little bit different:
Making It Small
The girlfriend of a past customer came to us to create a minature version of his SP8BOARD. It was to be a decoration for a surprise birthday cake.
We used the same materials that make up our skateboard decks and simply scaled down the size of the original deck. Drilled mini truck mounts and a birthday message completed the look.
Announcing A Winner
Lina B Barbers won an award from British Master Barbers and turned to SP8BOARDS to create a wall plaque that would commemorate this great achievement.
We were happy to help of course!
From Earth to Water
Painting your surfboard with a custom design is a surefire way of giving it a new lease of life.
You can also be sure you will be riding a one of a kind.
After repairing a few dings to an old EPS surfboard, we gave it a brand new design "SP8BOARDS style" and covered it with a waterproof layer to finish.
Did you realise that with a little modification skateboards make an ideal booster seat for small children when they are having their hair cut?
When not in use, they can hang on the wall.
We have done a number of these for both barbers and hairstylists. Choose a child friendly design or, as is more popular, let us show off your brand and logo.
Back to actual skateboard decks but still worth a mention because, in our view, nothing can beat helping to create a special memory to celebrate a wedding, anniversary or birthday.
Sometimes, we draw just for the sake of it. Our favourites remain a large framed picture made up of different SP8BOARD designs and a skateboard shaped wall plaque capturing the client’s love of Polynesian art and tiki masks.
We are always thrilled to help other businesses showcase their brand. Whether it is for display purposes, a customer gift or for use by your guests, a skateboard makes an interesting promotional item. Well, we prefer them to pens!
Who knows what will be next? We can’t wait!
