New Board and Design from Locker Board™ Pure Gold for Skaters Everywhere
SAN CLEMENTE, CA (April 16, 2018) – Locker Board™, the only non-folding, sustainably-sourced skateboard compact enough to fit in a backpack and locker, continues to innovate the skateboarding industry with a brand new board and updated design for 2018.
Launched in 2016 by then-11-year-old Carson Kropfl, an avid skater and surfer from San Clemente, CA, Locker Boards are unique, 17” skateboards designed specifically to fit in a school locker and backpack. A middle school newbie, Carson was crushed to discover that his beloved board wouldn’t fit in his locker or backpack and set about crafting one that did. His squared-off version was an immediate hit and business continues to grow, thanks in no small part to an appearance on Shark Tank, investors like Sir Richard Branson, and relationships with the Virgin Group, Nike, Jessup Grip Tape, and Ocean Unite.
Carson continues to rock the skating world, with two new 2018 releases joining the line’s already-popular Travel Trickster (SRP $98, which includes a $1 donation to Ocean Unite). New releases for this year include:
Shred’it Skateboard: The Gold Bar
Designed in response to skaters requesting a board that would fit in medium- to large-sized lockers, this larger Locker Board measures 24” long and straps easily to the outside of a backpack. The cube-shaped, upcycled deck allows for plenty of foot room for easy, fun rides and has a slight nose and tail giving riders total control and versatility. With 54MM Street formula custom wheels by Aend Industries and Destructo 5.25 mid trucks, the Shred’it Board is perfect for everything from shredding at the skate park to tricks in the street. Plus, a recycled deck helps keep trash out of our landfills (over 13 million skate decks are thrown away each year in the U.S.) and ensures a totally unique board for every rider. The 2018 Gold Bar design features an edgy logo in black and gold with custom, black and gold wheels. SRP $128, with $1 of every purchase donated to Ocean Unite.
Travel Cruiser: Golden Nugget
Designed for long rides on rough pavement, the Travel Cruiser series features a 17”, upcycled deck and brand new, large, high-end cruiser wheels for the smoothest ride around. A cube-shaped deck allows plenty of foot room for easy, comfortable cruising, while a slight rear tail provides exceptional control for smooth, effortless turns. The Travel Cruiser features Locker Board’s exclusive, compact design to fit easily in a standard-sized backpack or school locker as well as large, 59MM cruiser custom wheels by Aend Industries and Invader Sg T900 Black Cruiser trucks for a smooth, stable ride. A recycled deck helps keep trash out of our landfills (over 13 million skate decks are thrown away each year in the U.S.) and ensures a totally unique board for every rider. The 2018 Golden Nugget design features an edgy logo in black and gold with custom, gold wheels. SRP $116, with $1 of every purchase donated to Ocean Unite.
