About this project
Our vision is to spark a revolution in the skateboarding industry by creating a unique and durable aluminum longboard which gives you more control in the way you cut the concrete.
The Beercan Board is the All-American, Revolutionary Longboard. All Beercan Boards come equipped with a patented adjustable truck mounting system giving your more control over your board. It was created with environmental friendliness in-mind, made out of 100% recycled aluminum with 100% recycled plastic accessories.
How does the Beercan Board work?
The Beercan Board has an adjustable wheelbase. On the bottom of the aluminum deck a railing system is in place giving the control to easily place your trucks anywhere on the bottom of the board. We call these "TruckTrax". This system opens up a never-before-seen amount of control over the stability and maneuverability in your ride.
What features does the Beercan Board have?
All Beercan Boards feature:
- "TruckTrax" - The Adjustable Wheelbase System
- "Knuckleduster" Handholds
- "BeerBelly Strips"- Plastic Underside Protection Strips
- "BottleCaps" - Plastic End Protectors
- Eco-Friendly Construction - All Aluminum and Plastic are 100% Recycled
- All-American Made Manufacturing
- A selection from 8 powdercoat colors, or 4 anodized colors
Some Beercan Boards feature:
- Custom Length, from 24"-28"
- Custom Cuts and Deck Shapes
- Custom Engraving
- Wood-grain or Animal Sublimation Prints
- Dropthrough Truck Mounts
What Models Do You Offer?
We offer decks based on an 8" or 10.5" base width. As of the kickstarter launch we have created 4 different prototype boards in "Microbrew", "Hoke", "Kegger", and "Oat Soda". We have 4 more yet-to-be-named boards we're tinkering with at the moment.
What finishes are available to choose from?
Depending on your pledge amount, you will be able to select from the following finishes:
How will funding be used?
Funding will be used to purchase faster CNC routers, in house Powder Coating Machines, as well as packaging to deliver you a high quality product.
When will the Beercan Board ship?
We anticipate the first Beercan Boards ordered through Kickstarter will ship out as early as May, 2013.
Why should I fund the Beercan Boards project?
We could go on and on about the help you're providing to the environment with eco-friendly products, a skateboard that's much stronger and more durable than wood, etc.
Here's the greatest benefit to you: if you fund our Kickstarter Program with a pledge that's $50 or greater, you're getting a deck as a gift from us at a deeply discounted rate from our anticipated retail value.

Risks and challenges
We have experience for over 20 years of working with extruded aluminum in the muscle car industry. Our past products have been featured in films such as "2 Fast, 2 Furious" and TV shows such as "Nash Bridges". The Beercan Boards project originally started in the Summer of 2012, and since then we have been tweaking, reworking, and recycling prototype boards. We've got a great product to offer, but need your help to purchase new manufacturing equipment for mass production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We're providing an update post-haste to show samples. The Kegger has been cut, but we're currently polishing it off. We'll post pics of it soon!
