Corbusboards makes these skateboards cut from aluminum in killer designs. With all the cutouts, they supposedly weigh about the same as a longboard, and aren’t meant to hang on the wall. Try not to catch anyone in the ankles with the fish skeleton one! Via Core77.

    Man, those are gorgeous. Not worth $300, but that’s a really neat innovation. I could see someone definitely getting a decapitated ankle from one of these!

    I wonder what the weight cap. is on those cuz I might be bigger at 300lb but I can still get down. (old mad crabby Voice) back in my day I could do some bad ass stuff, never stopped riding though but all i do now are ollies and acid drops through the neighborhood. But if I could find a board that could take the weight I could still trough down. its just that when I throw down now I break boards

    I’m the photographer for Corbus and his boards. In the course of the last year I’ve ridden the boards myself and I can tell you they are:
    1. Light not much heavier than a traditional longboard.
    2. They are no more dangerous to your ankles than any other board.
    3. We have a BIG Samoan friend that rides one and it supports his weight.
    4. They are manouverable the trucks and riser pads are tuned specifically for each board (Sometimes for a few weeks).

    My favorite to ride has been the Fishbone as the cutouts make carrying it way easier than a regular board.

    Plus Corbus is a super nice guy!
