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
