Buckaroo #1 & #2

Posted in Skateboards on September 5, 2010 by bigsmokey

Just finished a new longboard. The Buckaroo #2. Its already sold, kind of. I am giving the customer a choice of buying the Buckaroo #2 or The Buckeroo #1 at a deep discount. These are great garage bombers and all around hill carving boards. Contact me if you want me to make you one…

The photo above shows the slight design differences between the boards. They both are right around 40″ long and a bit under 10″ wide. #1 (left) has a shorter wheelbase, and a slight kick tail making it a bit more nimble and versatile. #2 has a longer wheelbase making it a bit more stable at higher speeds… Both are concave with a slight upturned nose for responsive front truck turning.

Here are a few pictures of Derek and I playing a great gig up in Chicago with some of the blokes from one of our favorite bands, The Waco Brothers.
