    Introducing the LRV1 Drop Down Longboard

    This is our best one yet! Introducing the LRV1 Drop Down Longboard. The LRV1 stands for Lunar Rover Vehicle One. When the board came out of the press it looked so futuristic and resembled a moon rover I had to name it after one. LRV1 Drop Down Longboard

  • First real longboard video

    Posted on September 30, 2012 by Ryan

    Longboarding in CA

    We are on a quest to film our first real longboard video and have been searching for the perfect spots all around Orange County. We got lucky finding this spot because it was already waxed and ready to go. It’s the perfect longboard grind because you can ride grind up it and fall off the back side easily.  We just starting to film last month and have about 20 clips so far but it’s going good considering we can only film on the weekends because we have to ship out boards all week.  The video will hopefully be ready in a couple of months and be about 10 minutes long or so.

    This is Shane Johnston doing the ride-grind to flamingo grind at the rainbow grind in Fountain Valley, California last weekend. We call it the rainbow grind because the curb arcs like a rainbow. He had to go almost full speed to get over the upward arc. He’s skating the drop down drop through series.

  • Long boarding in paradise!

    Posted on September 20, 2012 by Ryan

    We found a down hill gem the other day while exploring the Newport Coast's back hills. We randomly drove up to the city water facility and low and behold we got lucky finding this perfect slider hill. The ground was actually perfect. We shot some footage with the new gopro2 and it came out pretty good.  Here's a photo of the hill.

  • Another great Ehlers Longboard review..

    Posted on September 19, 2012 by Ryan

    I wanted to send you an email to let you know I am very pleased with my order from Ehlers Longboards. I received my order on 9/13 and I couldn't wait to jump on and ride. A friend of mine left me his son's Sector 9 46" longboard for the last few months and my 13 year old daughter have been enjoying ever since. I have been wanting one for a long time now and I was on the computer on a Saturday and I stumbled on to your website. You see as times are tough all over and a lot of companies are not doing anything to stimulate the economy. I was excited to see that I was able select and build what I like at an affordable price. You guys put out a sweet product and I am spreading the news and showing off your product down here in the So. Eastern Riverside county. Now my daughter and I are skating two-three times a week. I will be ordering one for her soon in the next couple of weeks but she has no idea. I did take liberty and had her design hers on the website. So dad knows what to order.  I also want to say thanks for taking my call and answering my questions.
    Thanks again for everything and I will someday get to your shop with my daughter and visit.
    Yours truly,
    A Satisfied customer....

  • 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
