DL Skateboards is a unique young company that makes custom, handmade skate decks on the sidewalk outside a Greenpoint apartment building and in a retrofitted box truck acquired in New Hampshire. The couple behind the brand, Lauren Andino and Derek Mabra, have been skateboarding most of their lives and their passion and love for the sport drive their small business forward, producing fantastic cruisers modeled after 60′s classics. The Cool Hunting team just so happen to be walking down a street in Brooklyn and connected with Lauren and Derek and then they made this short-doc on their process of making and the motives behind making their skate decks in the art form in which they do. This is a great video, even if you aren’t a skater yourself, it’s for the crafty individuals who create out of passion.
