December 30th, 2009Shoppers design custom skateboards at new Downtown Disney kiosk
The Board Factory is the latest kiosk to open at Downtown Disney, allowing shoppers to design their own skateboards.
Nine-year-old Skyler Ludin of Irvine was visiting Santa at the Paradise Pier Hotel, and knew he wanted a skateboard for Christmas.
On the way out, Ludin saw the new kiosk. Ludin and his father, Terry, decided to stop by and create a skateboard for Skyler.
Shoppers start by picking out the various pieces of their skateboard, including wheels, trucks, decks. Skyler, whose nickname is “Sky” because of his sky-blue eyes, designed his skateboard with a light-blue color scheme.
Shoppers get to watch their skateboards as they are made — which takes about 10 minutes. The deck (which is the design underneath the skateboard) is placed on via heat-transfer through equipment that heats to about 280 degrees.
The skateboards cost about $70 to $85.
