Next review in our Harfangatang Competition comes from Philip Hannesbo – The Esk8 boards ‘Ouiija’
The Esk8 boards ‘Ouiija’ is a portuguese brand. The owner António Teixera makes the most incredible handbuild longboards, in a very of different shapes. I got the model named “Ouiija” originally designed in cooperation with Tusk design brackets. First nice impression was that I got to choose how I would like my longboard to be build. I could choose between the “normal” deck, have a layer of glass fiber added (which I choose) or have a layer of carbonfibre. Besides that I could choose how I would like the graphic: just a decal or handburned.
I received the deck in the mail and I put all the parts together right away.
What a nice fluent pumper – but also a phenomenal pusher!
This deck I also used for the Dutch Ultraskate 2016 where I managed to do 239,4 km even though I overslept. It was a great deck for the ultra because it is very low, and has a nice flex to it which helps a lot when pumping (LDP) and pushing.
I couldn’t dream of a nicer deck for the price I got it.
I think that says it about the Ouiija – absolute amazing deck. Which kind of does it all.
