It's the late 70's, and pools are being emptied out to conserve water around Southern California due to a severe drought. Little did we know that this would pave the way for the future of skateboarding as we know it as kids jumped fences and surfskated empty pools until the cops came.
The OLD SKOOL was designed and inspired by the wide, single kicker pool boards which emerged from this era in the early to mid 80's. With a blunt nose and wide rails, curved into a fat tail, this board has a lot of character and curves. Shaped for someone wanting the feeling of a retro old-school pool board combined with a surfskate.
Board Type - Surfskate, Carver, Carving, pumping
For those who like a wide deck and kicker under their feet.
Someone looking for an old school replica style

What a beauty. This is not just a board it is a piece of art! I am loving it!
On top of that it actually feels and performs great!
Incredible attention to detail coupled with friendly and professional service. If anyone is looking for top quality proudly South African custom boards, Dan from Kingdom is the person to talk to.
Met Dan on one of his trips to Southern California. Beyond stoked on the boards he brought with him from his shop in Cape Town. Been riding the board for over a year now and love it. Super high quality craftsmanship, design that has a nostalgic throwback, and just a fun board to ride. People say you get what you pay for, and that is absoluetly true with the boards Dan is putting out. Worth every penny. I'm riding it today and look forward to passing it on to my future kids.
