based on the californian spirit of original ‘cruiser’ skateboards, ‘handmade with love’ by french company la planche à roues is a new collection that adopts a similar style. offering an alternative mode of transport to move around the city, the skateboard has undergone a constant evolution in design. these handmade examples are cut from solid pieces of with oak, ash or pin wood and then customized with an engraved logo and geometrically painted shapes. made in france, the 63 x 17.5 cm light and compact series ‘colibri’ are a stylish addition to winding through the urban jungle.
