Surf Glass Series
Our new wood-less construction has been built from the ground-up, modernizing the bygone era of skateboarding when surfboard shapers would make skateboards out of leftover fiberglass. Much like our Fiber-Carve construction, these boards are made to carve and the convex deck adds a playful bounce. Paired with all new back-set, extra wide RetroFlex 58mm wheels and Tensor alloy trucks with hollow axle and kingpin, the Surf Glass Series is perfect for carving up banks and invoking yesteryear nostalgia. Now available in two sizes.
Retro surf inspired flexy cruiser in a longer length.
A modern take on traditional fiberglass skateboards commonly crafted by surfboard shapers using leftover fiberglass sheets in the 1960s/70s. Unlike yesteryear's counter-parts, this technically improved rendition uses a Fibercarve laminate construction that’s nearly indestructible.
Tensor Alloy Standard Trucks
Made in premium Aluminium and magnesium to produce the best quality skateboard truck on the market. All Tensor trucks feature Grade-8 kingpins and high-rebound urethane bushings.Tensor Magnesium trucks are 20% lighter than Aluminium with the same smooth grind. And they’re guaranteed for life.
Globe's high-rebound urethane formulas are abrasion resistant, smoother, faster, and provide excellent grip. Standard on every complete, Globe Abec-7 bearings spin faster and longer which means less effort and faster.
As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of premium skateboards, we use a significant amount of wood in our production. In order to off-set the timber we use to construct our skateboards, our goal is to engage in forestry efforts that replace far more than we consume.
To that effect, we have partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees we harvest annually in making our skateboards.
The NFF is a United States non-profit organisation that launched an ambitious campaign to plant 50 million trees across public National Forests between 2018 and 2023. The NFF partners with the United States Forest Service to target National Forests impacted by wildfire, pests and other disturbances. Globe is proud to be making a contribution towards that effort.
