At Ben Funke Longboards we build custom longboards with custom graphics. Our objective is to provide quality decks at a lower price than the standard factory board, while bringing the longboard surf style back to skateboarding.
We can build a deck with the size, shape, concave, flex, etc. that you want. Check out our longboard decks to find a style you like (be sure to check out the San Onofre, a 5-foot longboard, bigger than any other ever). Or just talk to me and describe what you want out of your longboard, and it will be built to suit your preferences.
Ben Funke Longboards feature a natural style.
11-ply or 15-ply birch decks
A natural sand grip finish
Custom graphics top and bottom - check out the NEW art gallery
NEW 10" Destructo, Randal, and Madrid trucks

Double risers (1 flat/1 angled) to minimize wheel pinch, stabilize vibration,
and provide an excellent turn radius
NEW Kryptonics wheels - 60 mm, 65 mm, and 70 mm
Why is it that Ben Funke Longboards provides quality decks at prices lower than the big factories? It is not because the boards are cheap, it is becuase I want your attention on my boards rather than any others.
It all started a few years ago when my friend Spike had his longboard stolen--twice. As cash-starved college students, we couldn't afford to pay the high prices of boards sold in the shops. I told Spike that I would build him a board for way less than he could buy it. Two years later, here we are building longboards as promised with the mission of providing quality but at an affordable price.
