Based on the 1976 Tunnel Competition Skateboard, Tunnel is now shipping the new and improved Tunnel “Comp” Longboard. It’s still 38” long, 9.25” wide, 27.25” wheelbase, with camber and concave to hold your feet in just right. And it’s still made right here in California. But because a significant number of our customers demanded a more flexy version of the Tunnel Comp, we test rode several batches of samples before coming up with the new Tunnel Comp. The new Tunnel Comp features composite construction with 6 plys of maple sandwiched between a top and bottom layer of advanced polymer fiber weave. The result – improved flex for better riding! It looks great too – black weave with a Tunnel logo on both top and bottom and high-quality spray grip. It’s a perfect all-around longboard - so throw on some trucks and Tunnel wheels and seek out some hills.
In this time of the year we always enjoy a lot of new developments.
Koastal has announced a new truck, the Edge. It will be based upon the Revenge Alpha model, but, like the name says, with more edges. It is a square version of the Alpha I and Alpha II model. Koastal is having the first Meat Loaf de Luxe in production. We hope to have them in stock in April. A downhill model is in development, expected this summer.

The last couple of weeks have been hectic. Many shops around Europe have applied for a dealership. We are happy with the high interest and especially the apparent quality of the stores. We are in this for the love of longboarding, and the same goes for the shops that have started selling our brands. Great, thanks for your support for these beautiful products. They deserve the attention of the European people!
