The new Custom Board Builder is simpler, faster, and more mobile-friendly. We have removed most of the product option images and replaced them with selectable drop-menus. Have a look now from a desktop or mobile browser:
The new store is live and ready for your orders. Remember, if you have received a discount code from the Temple or Central Texas longboard crews, use it in the store for 20% off your order. Also, keep your eyes open for the new custom board builder launch. You can access the store here:
• One reason we have such a low markup is because we are a smaller company that does not have the purchasing power of the brands you might already know. What this means: Larger companies buy in larger quantities, thus acquiring stock at a much lower cost than that smaller companies (like us). For this reason, larger companies can charge similar prices to their customers and turn a higher profit. For us to turn the same profit, we would need to charge more than our larger competitors, and that is not something we can do from a business perspective. Think about it. For the same price of a major brand, who is going to buy a deck from a lesser-known company? Exactly.
• Lastly, we're about getting people into the culture and onto longboards, not about making a lot of money. No, this is NOT a sustainable business model, but it's not intended to be. We love to skate. We love people who love to skate. We love introducing people to skating, and as long as we can afford to do so, we'll continue.
