Pulsar Boards was born out of an idea from Imre (Emery) Z. Balint's passion of using longboards to both enjoy local pathways and to get around more efficiently. He also wanted to reclaim his interest in wood working, and to add his special blend of creativity.
Imre wanted his boards to stand apart by creating uniquely shaped decks, while still ensuring that the boards could be used comfortably and practically. Each one produced is made from 9 ply Canadian hard maple, widely considered to be the best material for skateboards and longboards.
The artwork on our decks is special too. Each design is hand-drawn by Imre, then digitized, and laser-etched onto the decks. This makes for a professional and eye-catching look.
As a small family business, we take pride and special care to make every board. In fact, each one is handmade by Imre himself, with some occasional help from his father. And as an added bonus, we include a cool cap or toque created by his mother with every board purchased!
