Freeboard (skateboard)

Steen Strand conceived the idea for a freeboard as part of his master's thesis in product design at Stanford University, which he expanded into the freeboard style skateboard in 1996. After releasing an Alpha series featuring kicktails and longer decks (100 - 112cm) than his more recent versions,[1] Strand began retailing his freeboards under the brand name Freebord in the late 1990s. By the mid-2000s other freeboard styles and brands had emerged and were developing strong retail track-records in mainstream sporting goods stores.[2]
Freebord brand
After developing the freeboard in 1996, Strand released two models under the Freebord brand in 1998; the FB-112 and the FB-110.[3] The company patented designs relating to the Freebord brand freeboards. Though other companies have since developed their own freeboards and marketed them under alternate brand names, Freebord remains one of the largest producers of freeboards in the world. By 2000, the company had sold 4000 boards.[4] In 2005, the company signed deals to have their product distributed to snowboarding enthusiasts in Europe[5] The company continues to produce and market freeboards under the Freebord trademark.
