ONDA SKATEBOARDS - Our new UK Skate Brand

£55 is some crazy mark up on Chinese boards when you’ve got no team or distributor to think about. People can buy a Palace board for a tenner less, so why wouldn’t they?

You can call yourself a skateboard company when you have a team. As it is, you’re a website selling boards pressed and printed by somebody else.

Trying to be constructive so you don’t sink your life savings into this and wonder why you’ve got piles of unsold boards in your lock-up for the rest of time.

What’s your favourite part of the year, and favourite full-length? Who would you pick for UK SOTY? What do you think of Video Days?

Yer what @buildafire said.

Thanks for your feedback. I like to think of the unsold boards as my lifetime supply of skateboards should this venture not succeed.

Tee shirt tucked in, yay or nay?

Cool brand guys kind of a cross between Supreme and Braille. Like braille with a hypebeast street twist. Have fun with it and good luck!

No he definitely did not. They suited him at the time, but he didn’t make it look good.

Why do you say your company makes trucks but your website has Ace trucks on it? That’s like me claiming I’ve started a new crisp brand and just selling bags of Quavers online

Do you get your trucks from Ace direct or through rock solid?

We had a little chat amongst ourselves and decided that a previous comment that someone had made was fair. I didn’t get into this to make a large profit but rather to keep myself occupied while we weather this covid storm. I’m also doing this to learn something new.

For those reasons we decided to lower the prices so that we can offer the best value. For those worried about my personal finances, please don’t. I do enough worrying about that myself haha. But in all seriousness I’m not too concerned just yet and like I said we’re doing this more for fun than for anything else.

Thanks for your interest. We’re running a giveaway on instagram which is about to end in a few hours so head on over if you’re feeling lucky.

Cheers
David

Good luck and hope it works out for you.
Ignore anyone saying there are too many board brands; it’s not like we’re forced to buy from them all. Just follow the ones you like and ignore the other ones which eventually go away. Different strokes for different folks and at least you’re having a go.
