You can literally buy anything at Costco -- from camping gear to macaroons to coffins. (No, seriously.) And you know what I just got from Costco? THIS:
Initially attracted to the LED NIMBY Light-Up Mini-Cruiser (think: Penny Board), I quickly found myself drawn to the Grom. The bearings are fantastic, and I'd been looking for a shorter board to learn some tricks on. (Before my Jaseboard, I had a Robert August Surf One, which I still highly recommend for cruising and learning to skateboard. But I'm ready to learn to ollie, which would be really hard on such a long board.)
I also loved the backstory: Jaseboards is a small, Hawaiian startup that makes high-quality, Hawaii-proof boards out of maple and bamboo. You can take it to the beach, drop it in the ocean, or live somewhere super humid, and your board will be fine. (You can also run over it with your car without breaking it.) According to the website,
The Grom is our go to board for city skating. With a wheel base slightly over a foot and a big tail for manuals, ollies and tight turns it is easily our most maneuverable board. We still keep a relatively wide truck on it to maintain stability and some bigger wheels so cracks in the sidewalk don’t send you flying. The Grom is also our favorite for traveling and a great little friend to have when near a skate park.
I'm pretty excited about the wider wheels -- it was pretty windy this morning, and I hit a lot of sticks on the sidewalk, and barely even felt them.
I have yet to do anything amazing on my Grom, but still, I'm pretty sure this is going to be me, someday.
