Side Project Skateboards

Inspired by the do-it-yourself spirit of the skateboard culture half a century ago, Side Project Skateboards was started as a literal side project by woodworker Jake Eshelman. Each skateboard is built using recovered hardwoods, hand selected for their unique beauty before being cut, paired, and laminated to highlight the character and intricacies of the grain. Boards are then shaped by hand, optionally painted or stained, and finished with two coats of marine grade varnish — all by hand in Houston, Texas. Get yours bare or fitted with Bennett Vector trucks, Tekton Abec 7 bearings, and Seismic 3dm Cambria Wheels, the latter option coming ready to ride right out of the box. Just don’t go too crazy grinding lest you scrape, chafe, and otherwise tarnish the skateboard’s finish.
