Innovators need money to support the "real" work: Einstein slaved in a patent office, Tarantino rented out videos, and to finance his shrink-ray, Rick Moranis had to almost quadruple the amount of time he appears on-screen in any given movie. Building houses so he can build you better skateboards, the guy behind Quartertwenty.
The board-y baby of a surfing carpenter with two architecture degrees, QT's a shop whose design/ contracting gigs support an array of smaller endeavors (furniture, bottle openers!), including a brand-new line of uniquely mod skateboards whose details even include ergonomic hand-holds that aid in carrying, so Allen Iverson sure doesn't need these skateboards. Using methods honed on bent plywood furniture, each deck's cut from a cold-pressed concave slab made of three layers of Baltic birch topped with a collage of walnut or mahogany veneer and nearly indestructible leftover Formica "in godawful colors no one would put on their counter", though really, the Sean Penn/Robert Duvall cop movie was kinda good, so why not display it next to your Pop-Tarts? Just-dropped decks include the 40in, surfboard-like Three Fingered Jack that's built for cruising/ carving, plus the boxier Attache with lines like its namesake; both're customizable with two choices of kick angle and concavity, which you should normally try to avoid, as the dentists in prison are generally kinda terrible.
Quarter's also happy to work with you on custom shaping, and you can hook up any board with optional Seismic 180 "quick turn" trucks and Orangatang wheels, so you can tell your girlfriend "Honey, I Shredded Mt. Tabor".
