Emil Boards

Emil Boards is a recent startup from Munich, Germany, they make square skateboards inspired by the movie "Back to the Future”. The boards tackle the path back to basics, referring to the first days of skateboarding history, they are as pure as possible, with no convex, no concave, no rocker, and no camber, simply a square shape board made from high quality layered maple wood and fixed to modern trucks and wheels. Emil boards combine skateboarding with surfing, with the flat rectangular decks giving the rider more stability and enabling better coasting and carving. You can purchase the complete skateboard or just the deck. via watch the cool video
