  • On the spot with the 38” pintail cruiser.

    Posted on August 22, 2012 by Ryan

    This pintail is 38” long and 10” wide and is one of the easier and effortless boards to skate. With absolutely no flex this board is as sturdy as an ox. I always recommend this board for people looking to get an easy to cruise longboard. This board is great for people getting into longboarding and the experienced longboarders who are looking for a nice a sturdy board for tricks and slides. This board is definitely the thickest board in our inventory and holds the most weight up to about 350 LBs.

  • Why are Ehlers Longboards so inexpensive?

    Posted on August 17, 2012 by Ryan

    Why are Ehlers longboards so inexpensive!? That’s the question I have been getting since I started in 2010. The answer is, I only sell directly to customers. When customers go into shops like active, zumies or other board shops to purchase a board. The board has already been marked up two times. Most big longboarding companies sell to distributors for their profit and then the distributors sell to the shops for their profit. So by the time the longboard sits on the shelf it has already been marked up several times.

    Thank you
    Ryan Ehlers

  • New Grip Logos on All Boards!

    Posted on August 15, 2012 by Ryan

    We have more new stuff going on with Ehlers Longboards. We now have our logo screen printed on the grip tape. We are currently in the process of shooting photos every time a board goes out so we can capture it for the website. Most styles will be done by the end of the month. Here are some examples of new grip logos.

  • New drop through double kick shape coming soon!

    Posted on August 14, 2012 by Ryan

    New shape coming soon! I just got our new prototype finished today. They are in production as we speak and will be ready in two weeks. It’s a drop through double kick, the nose and tail rise up for more advanced tricks. You can regular and nose Manuel on this board along with shuvits and any other tricks you may have up your sleeve. The board is 100% Canadian maple and made in California.  The belly is cambered for a nice spring feeling, and keep your gullwing sidewinders at home because this beast is built to carve like no other.double kick drop through

  • Another great review

    Posted on May 21, 2012 by Ryan

    Hi

    I wanted to personally say thank you to David for  such a great review. Here's what he said.

    I have the greatest respect for Ryan Ehlers. I showed up at his shop unannounced and even though he was very busy he took the time to set-up my son with a custom longboard. He allowed Kenny (my son) to choose exactly what he wanted down to the color of the bearings. We returned a bit early and got to see Ryan at work assembling Kenny's board. Once again, he was very gracious and skilled - that's why I returned to buy another longboard for myself. This guy is a real pro and a down to earth class-act. I have skated for over 30 years and I can tell you that these boards are 100% professional grade - right down to the optional gull wing trucks. Ryan's boards are just as good - if not better - than anything you'll find in a pro shop. And, as mentioned, you get the added benefit of choosing exactly what you want.

     

    Thanks again David

    Ryan Ehlers

  • Ehlers Longboards goes international =)

    Posted on January 5, 2012 by Ryan

    Hello Ryan,

    GOOD NEWS!!  It took it's own sweet time but the longboard has arrived.  My son (who is 17) was totally pumped (as was I).  By the time we got to the post office (that's where we had to pick it up) it was cold, dark and about 30F (Welcome to Canada and oh,yah the surfing sucks).

    Canada Ehlers LongboardsWe got home and we took it out of the box...Ryan, what a fantastic board...well worth the wait.  Black on the bottom, white wheels natural wood top with the clear grit...really beautiful.  Really nicely designed.  Two seconds later my son was riding down the middle of our street.  There he was with the street lights casting his shadow and that 30F clear, cold air not even a worry as he cruised down the paved wave.

    Thanks Ryan, I don't know if this will mean anything to you, but I grew up in Huntington Beach in the late '60s and early '70s and I was one of those skateboard kids.  About thirty minutes ago the arrival of your board brought  all those feelings back to me and to see my son so stoked...thanks for the moment.

    Ryan over the years I have bought hundreds of products from the U.S. and I have never had a problem with any of them getting here, so I was so bummed when it looked like your board was going to be the first one that didn't make it.  Ryan, don't let this rattle you.  Keep shipping to Canada!!!  Don't give up.

    And, this is my opinion, DUDE you have got to put on each board MADE IN HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA    It may seem like just another over priced beach city, but Ryan it's really a magical place and I have a million kid memories to back that up!!  Show it loud and proud.  Lots of great and truly wonderful things started first in Huntington Beach.

    When I get a moment I'll send a photo and at some point soon we are going to make a little video for you to see.

    Ryan, keep on doing what you do best.  Even if you never make a million....it's the ride...it's all about the ride and you can take that to the bank.

    MIke

  • Daniel Thanks for the email

    Posted on October 24, 2011 by Ryan

    I recently received an email from Daniel at ASU thought I would share..

    Ryan,

    I received my locker board on Monday and I love it! I am new to skating but a seasoned snowboarder and I couldn't have made a better decision. I wanted to let you know that I found your company using Craigslist here in Phoenix. ASU is a huge longboarder school and many students utilize skateboards for travel. As a result, you should continue posting your information and ads on Craigslist. You might even consider running an ad in the ASU student newspaper because your prices and product will surely spark some interest. Today I already had someone ask where I got my board and it's only the second day I've used it.

    Thanks for the great product and I hope you find this feedback helpful.

    --
    Daniel I. Hutto

    Thanks again Daniel I appreciate you taking the time to write this email..

    Drop Down Complete Longboard

    Drop Down Complete Longboard

    This is the new drop down Canadian maple complete. The drop downs are getting more and more popular because of how you feel when you’re riding them. They curve downward so you’re lower to the ground, picture a hammock swaying back and forth. The reverse kingpin trucks give you the ability to carve into sharper turns. The drop down deck is 10 plies of strong Canadian maple and can hold up to 300 LBs.  Enjoy =)
