Providing urban - style longboard skateboards specialized for transportation and downhill. Hand made in Portland, Oregon since 2003.
Eastside was started in 2003 on the Eastside of Portland, Oregon. A group of local skaters in their early 20's seeked a board that could do it all. Skating downhill in a city park called Mt.Tabor we discovered the joys of rolling smooth on soft wheels to gain speed and grip. As our local hill, this has always been the place for testing out and refining each new model. Back then most boards available on the market were too short to control speeds over 25-30 mph or too long to make sharp inner city turns. Having the feel of a short board combined with the stability of a longboard - the perfect sized board was born with a strong focus on efficient transportation. Portland native and creater Robin McGuirk originally introduced a line of shorter longboards made to be more responsive to manuever quickly through the city. The most famous model from this line is called the Tabor as it is still made and sold nationwide. Next came the need for speed as the Racing Scene exploded in 2005 with major events happening like the Maryhill Loops annual summer race. We then introduced, after many prototypes, the Eastside DropBoard made for high speed downhill. Over the years being refined and revamped into one of the best speedboards on the market today. Since then various other downhill and freeride models have been released like the versatile DropKick and the symmetrical Rocky Bomber.
