How the team at Moonshine Mfg. goes about designing and building the next great skate deck.
New shapes for 2017 have been released and the skate season is finally on! So naturally, we are headed to the R&D lab to build our next great Moonshine deck. What’s our formula for success?
- Start by listening to our team, ambassadors, shops and Moonshine riders. What do you love about our decks? What could be improved? What’s missing from the line?
- Vote on ideas that could potentially fit in the line, and make sure they have the DNA of Moonshine Mfg (i.e. what puts a smile on riders faces).
- Collaborate with our head Moonshine engineer, Ebb, build prototypes and start riding!
- Have fun, and a few beers. Skating is fun, creating skateboards should be fun too.
There will inevitably be plenty of failures (we’re good at failing) – but that’s how greatness happens. Learn from your failures, improve, re-test and repeat! Last year, our formula resulted in the Elixir, Outlaw and Proof – so we know it works.
We’ve been collecting rider feedback and have a few good ideas in the hopper, but we could use more. Tell us what you think. We’d love you hear from you. Who knows, you might see your idea in next year’s Moonshine Mfg line up. Hit us up by commenting on this post, Instagram or Facebook.
