Each board is manufactured In-house, meaning we don’t do business with second-party manufacturers. Every board is 100% designed and produced by hand in our workshop in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
We prototype each board thoroughly and really try to keep in mind the variety of riders there are out there. Trying every possible combination of trucks and wheels alike, making sure everyone can run their preferred setup and never have to worry about wheelbite, incompatible trucks, etc is part of the process. Endless setup options.
All boards are sanded by hand to perfection just like a surfboard. We have a detailed five step process that gives each board its unique rail and edge pattern, making it more ergonomic and longer lasting as well. It’s tedious, but makes for a high-end result for skaters to enjoy.
By trying many combinations with wood finishes and unique tinted epoxy patterns we take pride in our products. Working hand in hand with local artists to immerse the essence of Montreal and its local charm into our boards.
Zenit’s single pressed boards ensure that every board feels exactly the same and retains its shape, pop and ultimately long lasting lamination.
We only use Epoxy resin, usually used in the snowboard/surf industry, to glue our boards.
When the epoxy two parts fuse and start to cure they heat up and make for a better bond, going deeper into the wood grain which merges the plies and epoxy. All of this results in a longer lasting board in terms of stiffness, pop, lamination and overall durability against the elements.
We only use the highest quality canadian maple veneers, which are typically used only for top and bottom plies on most skateboards on the market right now.
