I also ordered in mid-March and waited very patiently throughout the process. He finally notified me that the board was ready a few weeks ago and would be shipping the following day with tracking number being delivered shortly afterwards. I waited over a week before receiving the tracking number last Sunday.

I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area and could see that the board, shipped via FedEx and had arrived in Memphis, TN. That was Sunday and it should have been delivered to my office by Tuesday. Unfortunately it did not arrive and I now have a case opened with FedEx where they are doing an investigation trace. I was believing that I would be riding the new board this holiday weekend. Oh well. I hope that it's not lost for good.

Just received an update from FedEx. The package was being held in US Customs until a description of the contents could be provided. This may happen to other deliveries in the US. I may get the board by this weekend after all!

Placed my order April 30th with 20 days leadtime announced. Had a mail exchange recently with regards to track position for 590/633 options and am looking forward to a smooth final stage now. DHL should make it within 2 days to lovely Bavaria

I could not find any price listed on the website. Can anyone say how much the skate costs?

I think I beat the rush, but only just.
I ordered mine 5th April from Gunnar, and picked it up from him on flag beach when there on holiday over 2weeks ago.
The board is better than I had ever imagined.
Hang on in there as it will be worth the wait,
if you like I can always post up a picture of mine.😀

Good for Michele but bad for the rest of us, but I think Michele got utterly slammed with skate orders after Gunnar's video.

I was promised 15 days order to delivery on April 3 and I ordered that day (I'm in Houston TX).
He finally told me the board was finished on April 23 and I paid and would have a tracking number soon.
Still nothing a month later. I've consciously tried not to bug him, sending an email only every 3 weeks or so.

I'm not bashing the dude, I just think he probably is just dealing with cash flow and production order issues. I'm sure mine will come soon. I just want other potential purchasers to have realistic expectations if they are ordering.
Hi Phlow - did you get your Skate in between ?

I ordered mine 4/4 and it arrived last night via fedex to my home in New York. It looks soooo fun.

Nice construction, detail, and finish. Bag is well made as well.

Can’t wait to ride this thing.
