Longboard Skateboards designed, tested, and manufactured in Portland, OR. Created by one of the first longboarders in the Portland area - professional rider and Longboard Instructor Robin McGuirk. He launched Eastside Longboards in 2004 with the original model the Tabor - named after Mt.Tabor on the Eastside of town. This unique inner city park is a dormant volcano with some amazing closed runs and well known to locals, longboarding students, and skateboarders from afar. In recent years we've created several popular models like the Carbon DropKick, Rocky Bomber, and Blazer board. These longboards are some of the best quality on the market made for durability and daily use.
Ride Eastside for downhill, freeride, pushing / transportation, and all-around skateboarding!
The Tabor - Our original model made for urban transportation for the everyday commuter, it is been upgraded to also attack Boarder Cross courses, ditches, and banks with the new features. It has more concave, bigger tail and nose kick to allow faster ollies at more speed. Also added wheelbase options with large wheel-wells to match most brands of trucks. Trademark carrying Handle is great for traveling through the busy city life. Also available with no handle for more extreme riding.
Rocky Bomber - This latest version is all about Freeriding and bombing hills. Top Mount and perfectly symmetrical for a variety of setup options and riding styles. Great introduction to Downhill and an excellent top mount choice for freeriding with control and at speed. Recently added wheelbases, more concave, and more accurate cutouts and wheel wells eliminating all wheelbite. Graphic featuring Otis the Catahoula Leopard Dog!

Carbon DropKick - An all-around board that can do it all - Push, Freeride, and Downhill. Very durable construction laminated with a blend of hardwoods, carbon fiber, and a special resin binding it all together making it highly resistant to water and warping in the most extreme conditions.
