Longboard

– Passion & Profession –


While living in Berkeley-California during his teenage years René got infected with surfing and anything having to do with water sport. Ever since René followed his enthusiasm and picked up skills in surfing, windsurfing, stand-up-paddling, sailing, cat-sailing and boating.

Whilst studying product design René worked as a windsurf teacher around the globe. The wish to join profession and enthusiasm was always present and in the shape of a longboard it finally came true.

Even though home to paved roads longboard riding is an increment of surfing and demands a surfing spirit. Being a handy size product René was able to realize the longboard project under his auspices. All the way from ideation to functioning prototype the project demonstrates booth – René’s passion and profession.

Wide and soft wheels from Olson & Hekmati paired with V2 Paris Trucks make this longboard a true cruiser.

René has caught on fire and you can be sure that further products will follow.
