    Orange County Longboarding

    orange county longboards

    If you’re a longboader from Orange County then you’ll probably know that a longboard spot isn’t exactly easy to come by. We often get emails asking if we know any spots in the OC and the answer is always the same “You need to head for the hills”. There is no sarcasm in that; you literally need to head for the hills. Here in Huntington Beach where our warehouse is located isn’t exactly

    longboard heaven, it’s as flat as a door and it sucks. If we skate during the week we can’t travel too far because we are smack dab in the mecca of freeway traffic and when we do finally make to our destination its 30 minutes until night fall.


    It’s not as bad as it seems, on the weekends are when we can eat our desert. If your living or you have stayed anywhere in Orange County then you’ll know that you’re pretty much held captive and can only escape on the weekends. We charge up the go-pro, pack up our camera bag, grab our boards and get the hell out of dodge. Our spot seeking techniques are as sophisticated as looking out of our car window and pulling over if anything catches our eye.


    We have spent more time searching for stops in Orange County then Luis and Clark seeking out land in our beloved nation. Okay that’s an exaggeration but it feels that way. From our extensive longboard spot finding research we now have a weekend warrior plan that we stick to and this is where the “head for the hills” comes in. We found some spots in the north side of Irvine and Mission Viejo, but we find most of our gems up in the canyons around Foothill Ranch, Anaheim Hills, and Yorba Linda and if you really want to venture out then checkout Silverado Canyons. Silverado Canyons has some pretty sick bike trails that get really squirrely and steep but we mainly go for the winding isolated roads.


    We are only sharing our experiences and opinions on the matter. This writing is no way shape or form speaking for all Orange County longboarders. Others could have opposite experiences we would not want to conflict with their opinions.


    With all that being said, let’s go skate! We are always looking for new longboarders to skate with so shoot us an email or call us if you want to go skate. We are also looking for new riders so if you have a video and are pretty good at downhill freeride send us a link.


    Thanks guys
    Ehlers team

  • What’s in the line-up for Ehlers Longboards 2014!

    Posted on November 12, 2013 by Ryan


    We are near finishing up our 3rd year this Christmas. We came along way since the one car garage days and are about to come up big in 2014. We have been in the works for months on new and innovative downhill designs. We are experimenting with different shape technologies to bring a new experience to our customer base. We want board shapes to mold to your feet for confidence and more stability.


    We are going to tighten up the line-up for the downhill- freeride, traditional and cruiser divisions by taking away and adding shapes. We are having 5 drop downs 5 drop throughs 5 downhill directional boards for our downhill-freeride line-up. Each board will have their own custom graphic similar to the LRV1 and LRV2 series.


    The new Road Runner will have double concave and its own custom graphic by Feb 14. We are working on the new Dexter model which will be a switch downhill directional similar to the Road Runner but with mirrored nose for the tail. We are going to mirror the Road Runner nose and make the nose and tail the same. Dexter is short for ambidextrous meaning both ways.


    As for wheels, the new 77mm six star stone ground 81a sliding American Racers Zazas will be ready for down- hilling by Dec 10th this year. We currently do not have a big sliding wheel in our portfolio and can’t wait for wheels to be finished.


    We are currently working to finish the Free Soul Trucks website also.


    Now sponsoring! We are going to start looking for longboard skaters to skate for us. We are going to have four spots open for sponsorship which will include free products and international longboard magazine exposure.

  • Longboarding in Hawaii

    Posted on October 10, 2013 by Ryan

    If you ever go on vacation to Hawaii be sure to bring your board. It’ll be hot, it could rain or a coconut might fall on your head. But one thing is for sure, you’ll never run out of sick hills to slide. Doing a power-slide down a random in Maui.

  • Kaylee thank you for your letter.

    Posted on April 23, 2013 by Ryan

    One of our customers wrote us a really nice letter the other day and we though we'd sure it. This is what she wrote.


    Dear Mr. Ehlers


    In 2011, for my thirteenth birthday, I received one of your longboards. It was one of your longer ones, and it was the watermelon check design. My cousin had directed me to this company to get it ordered, after I asked her where she’d gotten hers. I’ve even had several people ask me where I got it, and I gladly referred them to you. Mr. Ehlers, I am very happy that I came to your company for my longboard, because I have been very happy with it. I love the way it looks, and it is easier for me to ride than a skateboard. Whenever there isn’t snow on the road, I’m outside, riding my longboard. Mr. Ehlers, I have been very grateful to have a way of transportation. It makes it easier and quicker to get to babysitting jobs or youth activities.  I also appreciate the relaxation it brings when I’m just riding around.

    Most of the teens I know have skateboards (I can’t steer them) rip sticks (can’t even get it to move) and bikes (don’t have one), and so I was very happy to have something that was easily mobile and fun to ride. It is fun to know that once I had a longboard, most of the people in my neighborhood got one. Usually, they are the trend setters, but thanks to your product, I got to be the cool one. Some of my friends also bought one. After I had told them about your company and how you could choose what the longboard looked like. They all appreciated this factor as much as I did.

    In summary, I am glad that I could have a form of recreation when I’m bored or stressed. I’m also happy that I have a way of transportation to babysitting jobs and other activities that I have wanted to participate in. I’m glad that I got to be the “cool” one in not only in my neighborhood, but also with my friends. I’m glad that finally I found something to ride. I also appreciate the option to design the longboards.

    Thank you



    Kaylee, thank you so much for taking the time to write this letter. It's people like you that keep us motivated and inspired to do what we love to do.
