Born and growing in Wisconsin, we have found ourselves a nest tucked in the hills of Baraboo. Where we work to provide skaters with a wide variety of hand crafted decks. From press to finish every deck is made in house using locally harvested midwest hardwoods! Rotary cut hard maple veneers are laid up over one of our home-brewed bottoms and cold pressed for 24hrs. We don’t bother with applying the same graphics over and over, but instead we let the wood patterns, different grains, and knots offer a little individuality to every board. http://www.dubslongboards.com/
