Flatspot Longboards – Enjoy Your Commute

Traffic sucks, bikes are bulky and walking is for chumps. Your daily commute doesn’t have to be boring so make it enjoyable.

Living in Vancouver has its perks, but it doesn’t come without a few headaches like dealing with traffic. We’re lucky enough to be in a city were you don’t necessarily need a car, but taking transit every day can add up over time…and it’s pretty boring. Bikes are efficient but you’ve got to worry about them being stolen while they’re locked up, plus their pretty bulky. We won’t deny we love a good bike ride on a sunny day, but theres a bit of a liberating feeling by taking a board to work, or wherever we need to be.

Commuting to and from work, the post office, the bar or your moms house is no longer a hassle when you’re dancing the whole way there. Throw in some ear buds, listen to some funky jams and get your cross step on with this killer selection of dancers, flexy decks and cruisers.



These boards are built with cross-stepping and tiger claws in mind. The extra length offer plenty of room to get funky fresh and put your feet to work. If you’re feeling venturous grab a friend and go tandem…Titanic anyone?
