Every board you see here at Anchor Plank is handcrafted from the start to the end, straight from the heart.
What you've found here is a guy who was hit smack in the face with an awesome dream-to bring back the artisan qualities of hand made stuff, but on another level, and decided to exercise this motivation in the direction of his passion...longboard skateboards.
These boards are totally unique, totally ridiculous high quality and totally full of massive levels of passion straight from the heart. They're also a total bastard to make! Pardon the 'French'. We've combined the best parts of surfing and skating to give to you these unique boards. There is no other ride like it.
Each one is passionately pieced together from the start, right here in Melbourne, Australia. We started by sourcing the best woods money can buy-canadian Rock Maple 'leafs' of ply (unpressed as yet) and incredible exotic woods to decorate the top face of each board. We glue and press each board, make each of the top sheets that have the stringer patterns, and cut and shape by hand. A lot of time, pride, energy and love is put into each board.
These longboard skateboards are 100% eye candy and really pop visually. A bunch of people have said they didn't get how good they looked until they laid eyes on them in the flesh.
We love what we do and we want to share it with the world. We're here to make friends and get a board out there that takes on a whole new meaning- visually, in craftsmanship and ride-wise. Theres no better feeling to us than taking a board from start to finish-gluing, shaping, sanding and finishing-and knowing the person getting it is going to be blown away.
We still are every time we finish one.
