We are proud to present the 2014 line of Cardboards Kiteboards. issuu.com/calvinp.crochlow/docs/carboards_catalog_2014 As many of you are probably not aware, Sugar Skull Factory has bought Cardboards from Dan Veale. An agreement was reached earlier this year and the entire company was shipped to our headquarters in Dubai. Cardboards great name and boards will remain 100% the same great quality. We painstakingly relocated all of their equipment here to Dubai to ensure that Cardboard fans would continue to get the exact same boards. You will notice that the cost of the boards have dramatically decreased in price! This is not because we use inferior material or use substandard construction methods but because the cost of shipping raw material to Dubai is much cheaper than to Australia as well we do not have any taxes here! All the material we use to build our boards comes from either the U.S. or Europe. We are currently working on the Cardboards website, we will be re-launching it soon! You will also notice that the graphic style of Cardboards has changed......admittedly this is the one thing we changed about Cardboards, we are not huge fans of straight lines and geometrical shapes...........yawn Sugar Skull Factory is a well experienced company building boards since 1993 where we started in California. Over the years we have collected several brand under the Sugar Skull Factory name by either starting them or by buying outstanding companies. We currently own the following brands. Atmosphere Clothing Sugar Skull BRC Grind Candy UNiT SiX Snowboards Carboards

Nobs are you for real or what . I have a wave and the pads on it are great better then others out there at least it is not Velcro and fill up with sand and stuff . Any how I hope that Sugar skull gets it sorted what ever the problem is cause the wave board is really cool to play with waves .

There is an alternative, Axis, the new brand from Underground's founder and designer Adrian Roper, have a board that is an evolution of the Underground/cardboards model, its called the Twin Wave, we have a demo board here in Sydney and have sold a coup,e to very happy locals. Hopefully one of them will post a review and some pics soon?
