FunBox Skateboard Distribution although heavy into longboards on the Website is deeply rooted in street Skateboarding. Back in the 80’s (I am old lol) like every kid I had a dream to become a pro skateboarder. Although very different back then I knew that if I could not make it as a pro I was going to work in skateboarding some way or some how. I started my first “skateshop” when I was 13 or 14 years old called Dan’s Decks and I went to the Ocean City MD trade show to check it all out. I really wanted to be able to offer affordable skateboards to the homies and get stuff on the cheap. Funny because now that I think about it that is what Funbox does and seriously I just put that together right now. wow!
As I was saying, FunBox Produces street decks and lots of them. We make skateboards and skateboard wheels for brands and shops all over the world. We supply them with parts too. Bearings, griptape, hardware you name it. Obviously longboarding was not around back then but in my eyes its all skatebaording. Long or short we all have the same passion to get out there and ride right? I have had to the pleasure to see many a skateboarding make a name for themselves.
There are lots of great skateboarders out there but every once in a while there is a star. People like Eric Koston, Daweon Song, Greg Lutzka, Paul Rodriguez and of course Nyjah Huston just to name a few. I saw P rods sponsor me tape for DNA Skateboards, I saw Greg Lutzka when he rode for Illenium skateboards and I say Nyjah in is first transworld video and knew it was game over.
Fast forward to now and your boy has a shoe on Nike and is destroying the game. Please take a moment to watch his part and you will see real talent on the board. Hard work, Mental toughness and the will to succeed are all traits that skateboarding teaches you and this right here is 100% Proof.
