The Back to the Future-inspired Emil Board is a rectangular skateboard, paying homage to the early days of skateboarding history but equipped with modern-day components. Both website and video above are pure eye candy.

We are a small band of good friends from Munich, Germany. Inspired by the movie "Back to the Future – One“ we started to build square skateboards in the beginning of 2013. Our boards are made for surfing the sidewalk, combining our skateboarding roots, and our love for surfing. Being totally stoked by riding the first prototype, we knew that this would be in our heads for a couple of time. Having made a lot more prototypes by hand and getting an awesome feedback from friends, friends friends and people on the streets, we decided to get them done by a professional skateboard manufacturer. And here you go, the first Emil is ready to roll.
