A day in the shop with the Lunch Tray

 

Have you ever wondered how a skateboard was made? Here's a small glimpse into the longboard creation process of the Lunch Tray and Lonnie our board artist in the shop. 

We plan on releasing more behind the scenes videos of how we create our longboards in the coming months to show you how much thought and care goes into each one of our products, so every longboarder can enjoy the best ride possible. 

More about the Lunchtray:

The Lunch Tray is the perfect board for both freeriding and downhill skateboarding. The board's unique symmetrical design features flared wheel wells that give the rider more wheel clearance than ever thought possible. The front and rear flares also provide perfect pockets (in front of and directly over the bolts) for locking in and great leverage points for both heelside and toeside slides. This board features 1" of continuous rocker and .69" of continuous concave. With your foot bumped up against the flares your feet will stick to this board like peanut butter on toast. Although the kicktails appear flat, the 1" rocker gives them additional leverage while maintaining a close relationship to the ground for "ollieability" with reverse kingpin trucks. Did we mention this board is flush mounted so your trucks will ride with their true geometry? What could be better? OH YEAH it's made by DB in the USA.

Deck Dimensions

The Lunch Tray's 36" length and 23"-25.9" wheelbase is great for riders looking for a shorter board for sliding and freeriding. The variable wheel base offers a ton of options and fits both old school and new school drilling patterns. The flush mounts keep your trucks parallel to the ground and maintain your trucks intended geometry. 

Platform Specs

Lunch Tray Platform Specs

The Lunch Tray was one of the first brick designs to employ large flares and continuous rocker. This combination has many benefits; it enables the rider to lock in for big slides and DH tucks and also provides great clearance for larger wheels. The "Double Pocket" design of the flares provides geography for riders who like riding over the trucks and additional pockets for riders who like riding within the effective foot platform. 1" of continuous rocker over the EFP is generous and will keep you confident on faster hills. 

Concave Design

Lunch Tray Concave

The Lunch Tray's concave is praised world wide for it's organic design that is functional and comfortable. The 0.69" continuous concave blends nicely with tall flares and is large enough to lock your feet in place while remaining comfortable for those longer sessions. 

Construction

The Lunch Tray is constructed of nine ply's of premium North American Hard Rock Maple. These boards are pressed under extreme pressure one at a time to ensure precise concave. We use a waterproof bonding agent to ensure long lasting concave and long lasting lamination. The wheel wells, flush mounts, profile, and mounting holds are cut simultaneously on our CNC machine to ensure there is 100% shape accuracy during the machining process. From there your lunch tray is hand sanded, spray coated, and graphic transferred. To finish the process each lunch tray is inspected and approved prior to shipment. 

Hand Crafted in the USA

Lunch Tray's are made 100% in the USA. We make these boards at our manufacturing facility just south of Seattle, WA. Our boards are are crafted with care by skateboarders who care. We stand behind our product and warranty our good to be free of defect.
