  • A recap on our re-launch...

     
    We would like to say a big thank you to all who came out to Lanky Plank in support of Smile Longboards’ re-launch and make it as great as it was.
     
    It was the perfect atmosphere of entertainment and antics to help reintroduce ourselves and provide a platform to voice our goals we have in store for the future of Smile. It was quite a nail biter initially, knowing how fickle the weather on the South coast likes to behave, yet the size of the turnout and the variety of people, boards, styles and stoke couldn’t have been better.
     
    As always, Lanky Plank’s traditional raffle provided an ample amount laughs while helping raise a very respectable amount of £385 to be split evenly towards Brighton and Hove Skatepark Association and the Marine Conservation Society. Having said that, the moment of the night for us arrived coincidentally during the award of the final raffle prize, our downhill machine aptly called the Sea Calf. Against all odds, it was won by none other than the person who we took over Smile Longboards from and couldn’t have been more of a metaphorical baton pass if we tried; truly great way to finish the night.
     
    Not wanting to steal the show, there was also a great selection of wares on show and prizes kindly donated by our friends Brighton Watersports, Kamikaze Boards, Vikings of Skate, delicious treats by Sam’s Brownies and outdoor indo board entertainment by Jpix Art ( never thought we would look so good in Glow-in-the-dark ). To round things off, Baked Beats was on deck to provide excellent tunes throughout to keep the crowd moving and energize those that were enjoying a skate outside. All-in-all a fantastic night to help set the bar for things to come.
     
    We’re eagerly awaiting the next Lanky Plank ( which will take place sometime during the round off of the summer ) to resume festivities and help make it bigger, better and more accessible for all. For some more great pictures of the night, head over to here on Facebook to see all that people got up to. Cheers and see you all again soon!

  • A sign of things to come

     
    We’ll it’s here, Smile Longboards has officially opened for business in the digital realm! Party hats are on full tilt.
     
    Here at Smile Longboards, we are continuously striving to improve ourselves in how we reach out to our customer base. Taking over recently after being in such good hands for the last few years we were a bit nervous on how to go beyond what had already been done before. Having relied on Facebook for so long, it was a great resource to read up on comments and suggestions ( including some of our own when we were on the other side of the stall ) on how to reach our expanding audience more efficiently. Plans were put in motion to get the ball rolling on development and now the time has finally come to publish our efforts!
     
    We would like to mention that this is only the beginning, and therefore things are going to start off a bit more of a jog than a sprint so please bear with us as we work to get up more recent sections of our stock online. In the next few weeks we are working to guarantee that we will have 100% of what we offer up online so that you have a quick and easy resource to rely on whenever your interested in viewing what we have in stock! There is also the added benefit of flash sales and our dedicated blog to keep up to date on new inventory and developments within Smile Longboards. We wish everyone a wonderful 2014 and bring on the summer!
