the briefskate board responds to an everyday dilemma for frequent riders: what do you do with laptops, wallets, and other handheld items while you cruise? originally conceived by alexei novitzky — a college student at the time — in order to have a place to put his books while skating from class to class, the realized design is now a functioning unit that contains an internal storage compartment hidden within. axes connecting two, exterior panels open to reveal a padded, shock resistant chamber, where objects that aren’t easily carried can be neatly and safely stored away. the board also sports adjustable tension latches and a custom made hinge set. currently available in long, and mini versions

  • designboom, seriously? horrible cruise-board, and definitely the worst place for a smartphone… the red velvet and decent photos don’t make it any better…

    wtf says:
  • This is a great idea. I’ve always wanted to my thousand dollar devices in a hollowed out skateboard. Will it backup my data when it’s inevitably erased by all the vibration

    I can throw my backpack out now!

    Dr. Incredulous says:
  • Ever heard of a thing called backpack?

    vgcamara says:
  • what’s so bad about carrying conventional backpack while riding skateboard? with these thick boards, you’ll be limited in manuvering the board. unless you want to smuggle things in there, this is pretty lame idea.

    Sean L. says:
  • I have difficulty accepting that the shocks would not be transferred to the items stored.
    Great idea though. Really great.
    What about solar array on the top of the board or underneath for when its not in use.

    Ron Smith says:
  • As a skate rat, I always secure my skateboards.. they would be the first thing stolen by anyone under 30. Besides, this thickness would be obvious to anyone under 60. FAIL.


    JimCan says:
  • sorry this will not work for electronic devices- they aren’t meant to take the vibrations and shock of riding a skateboard.

    markjamesdesign says:
  • Bye Bye Designboom…

    B says:
  • Terrible idea. Just awful in so many ways,
