My name is Shawn! If you don’t know me, I’m the founder of a little solo-factory in Southern California.
I’m known 'round these parts as the best board maker in Ventura County. I earned my stripes back when I was 13, starting off with a street deck and refurbishing donated boards for a skateboard club I started at a local after school program. I’ve always had a knack for making things and to make a long story short, my proverbial childhood “lemonade stand” has inspired this business venture in my adult life.
Voxel Boards has been slowly but steadily growing over the last 5 years and while my accomplishments are more personal than economic, I am nonetheless proud of my work and only hope to improve my skills, service, and original designs in the future. I’ve got lots of ideas and maybe too much ambition and arrogance for my own good, but I hope to point that towards the innovation and technological developments I can deliver in a product to fellow skaters around the world.
As for my post this evening. I’m hoping to learn from the kind folks on this forum, and begin to service the broader esk8 community. I’ve had a number of kind strangers on this forum who have recommended some of my 3D printed footstops, and I would like to thank everyone who has checked out my website on a recommendation from someone you met here. I’m just a single board maker and designer, and marketing definitely isn’t my strong suit. Word of mouth is main way I’ve grown my brand, and I am happy to show gratitude and answer any questions that you might have about my work.
SO. To help kick things off, I am definitely interested in building my own esk8 setup in the near future. What’s hot and what’s not in the world right now?
I had a friend mention y’all might be interested in decks with a bit of a cavity for battery packs. Would a deck like my Gravos² be interesting to some people with an optional feature like that?
