About Us

Our mission at Genesis is to make the best handboard. We use quality materials to give you the most realistic experience possible.

Our focus at Genesis is the wood. We use AAA Canadian Maple because real wood boards are better boards. We want the deck to be the centerpiece of your handboard.

Each deck is shaped by hand.

Reno has said from the beginning, "I have never made the same board twice."

"I let the wood do its own thing. I have to treat the deck like it is still a tree. Because it is. And trees want to be strong. Sounds kinda hippy, but it is true.

I enjoy building boards so much that I leave a little bit of me in every board."

We make native and exotic wood boards, specialty dyed boards, and designed and created our own unique mold shapes.

Our boards are 3 inches wide, the biggest on the market, and our signature Genesis trucks were specially made for our adult sized boards. The trucks are made strong for the tough grinds in the most epic places by the greatest of handboarding enthusiasts. We built them to last.

We exclusively use the best bushings, by Level-up Fingerboards, which give our trucks a smooth touch and excellent flexibility. Our wheels are real urethane for a smooth glide, real feel, and great sound. All this comes in our black and gold signature genesis box, to be assembled by you, for an awesome handboard experience.

Genesis trucks are a completely custom design, made out of 356 grade aluminum that has been T6 heat treated for added strength, with plated steel axle and kingpin to ensure that they will never rust. Our wheels are dual bearing, real urethane, and are all handmade on a lathe.

Genesis Handboards is based in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. If you have any questions or comments about anything, we would love to hear your thoughts. You may contact us at:
