How much VAT(Tax) or import costs you will be charged with depends on your country and on the total costs of your order. Some countries do not charge any VAT or Import but some will.
You can find a tool HERE that can calculate import taxes for you(fill in a random email and it will work). Please mind that these tools give an estimate!
It means we received your order and are working on getting it done. Depending on what you ordered it can take several day’s before we ship your order. Please keep in mind that Covid-19 is causing some delay!
If you ordered a product on backorder it can take 2 to 3 weeks before we ship your order! We aim to keep this time as low as possible but it can take a while!
As soon as your order is ready for shipping, you will receive an email with Track and Trace information so you can follow your package!
Before we ship your order, your order status will be on “Processing”, this can take a couple of days depending on your order. Once your order is ready, your order status will be set to “Completed” and it will be shipped. How long does the shipping take?
It depends on your country. We are in The Netherlands, so Germany is about 1-2 working days. If you order from let’s say.. Singapore, it will take a bit longer. Our experience is that after the shipping is done, you can expect it in 3-5 working days.
When you ship your board, normally you will get an e-mail saying your order is “Completed”. We also installed a feature that gives tracking info, but we also noticed these mails can go to your SPAM box. You can always contact us if you didn’t receive tracking info.
If it does take longer, send us a message. We rarely ever have problems after we send the package, but it can happen. It’s out of our control but we can always contact the package service to see what’s up.
It’s basically this:
– The board has to be brand new and unskated. The condition has to be the same as how we sent it to you.
– Complete Skateboards must be in the original condition in which we sent them to you. (Clean, not ridden and no scratches)
– Deck only orders must not be mounted or altered in any matter.
– Wheels must be in the original condition that we sent to you.
– Trucks must not be mounted or altered in any matter.
– Articles must be returned with the original packaging intact.
-Costs of shipping/returning the products back to us will have to be paid by the customer.
If you want to return your order, sent us an e-mail at email@example.com to formally put in the request and we will get back to you as soon as humanly possible.
1. We can’t make boards and bamboo harder than concrete
2. It’s a product of natural materials
3. To skate is to trash. The cost of progress is some damage here and there
4. If everyone would always lands their tricks on bolts, no boards will die.
5. After heavy and prolonged usage, you sadly will have to declare a board dead..
Chipping and surface cracks do not fall under warranty. This is expected to happen with a natural product when you pound it into the asphalt. If we would refund this we would not survive as a company.
We are constantly developing and trying new stuff to minimize the wear and tear of your Timber Board. Also, we use some real space-age epoxy glue that has been stress-tested to see the best combination with the used woods to almost certainly say they will not break. If your board breaks after light usage, send us an e-mail or message through facebook or the website. We’ll figure something out.
Who knows. Send us a video showing your skating skills and editing skills through e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Know this: We strive for the best skating, but also a nice character gets you a long way. We are all family. Before you send us an email, please have a look at our Family page and watch some video’s from our Team Riders. If you feel like you are matching their skill level, feel free to send a mail.
OUTSIDE OF EU: We will deliver all your stuff, but we will not put it together. This is because a big box has way higher costs for shipping and environment. To keep it affordable to get your board to you, we will provide a step-by-step instruction booklet in case you’re not sure how to assemble it.
Yes, but its not the best thing to do to your board. Timber Boards are made out of Bamboo, glass fiber and carbon fiber. This has all been glued together with epoxy resin. The glass fiber, carbon fiber and epoxy are all waterproof and wont be affected by water. The graphic on the bottom is protected by a layer of epoxy and will also not be affected by water.
Bamboo is highly water resistant but at some point will take in water making the edges softer then they normally are. As the edges are softer when they are wet, keep in mind that the board will be more prone to damage with high velocity impacts.
In order to protect the environment we use water based paint and lacquer to paint the top of the board. If you don’t have griptape on top of your board and go skate during the rain, there is a chance the color on the top of your board will fade/wear down faster then normal.
If your board is really wet after a skate session, get a towel and wipe down all excess water. Then store your deck in a dry place at livingroom temperature. Do not put your board against a heat source to make it dry faster.
