The EVE longboard, its for you in every way possible.

About this project

We need your help to mass produce the Eve Longboard and increase public awareness. Presently we do not have enough funding to mass produce the Eve which makes the board cost more. We came to Kickstarter in hopes that we can get enough people to support us so that we can jumpstart the production process and no longer have to make them one at a time. Your support allows us to not only do this but to increase the quality of an already amazing product.

                                    the GRIP.

When I first started long boarding I would board to travel to and from my college. Some days it was difficult to carry both my board and my books. I decided there had to be an easier way to do this. So I came up with the Eve. 

The Eve has more than just a handle but finger holds to bring the board closer to the body when you are in a crowd. They also provide great places to strap the Eve onto your backpack. To top it off, we designed the tail so you can drag it behind you. It was thought completely through for your convenance and ease.

                                   the BUILD.

At 41 inches long and 9.5 inches wide. It is built for starters and those who love a really smooth ride. 

We have the manufacturing process down! At the manufactures, we first press the decks into the concave and the kick tail. Next step, we measure for the truck mounts. Then we fasten a templet onto the board to cut out the shape and handles. From there we sand it, then spray it with the right color and stains. Lastly we wrap it, place it in a box and ship it right to you.

The Manufactures charge less when we order in bulk. The process is also a little different in the fact that they get into the rhythm of making one type of board and that keeps them looking the same. For example stains look different each time you mix a batch. So when they stain them all at once the colors remain consistent.

                                                                  The Progress

When I first started thinking about Mojo longboards it wasn't even a name yet, only an idea. An idea of having a longboard with a handle in it. I looked around and found only one site with a board that had a handle and the board wasn't all that cool looking.

    The first board I bought on amazon. When it came in the mail, right away I started carving out a handle with a pocket knife and a box cutter. I can be really handy with a box cutter but it looked a lot better after I had borrowed a few tools from my father. I rode that board for 6 months and received a lot of compliments for the handle. So many of my fellow college students asked where I got it, those who had a longboard would say “man I wish my board had a handle, that would make it so much easier to carry around at school!” Those who wanted a longboard would say “Man, when I get a board I want one with a handle in it too.” Right away I knew the real longboard market wasn’t being fully tapped. Most boarders are college student but boards were being made just for boarders. They needed to be made with the college student in mind.

        The business didn't become something till my entrepreneur teacher, Ralph Little, challenged me to make a video about the project in ten days. I ran with the challenge and never stop running sense.  Mojo longboards didn’t fully take off till 3 things happened. #1 a fire kindled by my entrepreneur teacher to get the idea moving. #2 I had to work out all the details of how to get the boards manufactured, and how to ship them. #3 Friends and random people, who later became friends, grew to raving fans and gave me their full support.

         We went through many different designs and finally settle on the board you now see today called the Eve.

I made different cardboard mockups and asked Friends with the right tools to make prototypes. After much searching we then found a manufacture who would work with us and they just so happened to be in the same town.

Risks and challenges

We may experience some setbacks due to the manufactures not finishing the boards on time because of overwhelming orders from Kickstarter. We will handle it by visiting the manufactures weekly or daily to help them with any bottle necks in the process. Getting something new started takes longer than what most people expect but we have worked out the kinks and now are ready to make the boards and get them into your hands and under your feet.
