Italy: Seeking funding on kickstarter right now is N2R Longboard. Claimed to be indestructible, we are told they are 40% stronger than the fiberglass and 70% stronger than the plywood decks. Also the weight is said to be 25% lighter than standard board. The most interesting part is that the N2R boards come with at 3 year warranty over structural damage.
