élan is and has always been 100% Skater Owned & Operated.
Established in 2002 by Andy Walker. I (Andy) wanted to be more involved in skateboarding and as well as create something for myself, I also wanted to do something so that I could help other skaters hopefully in ways better than I had seen and experienced.
All élan products go through rigorous testing by myself and élan riders before deciding to go ahead with any production. As well as wanting to provide only the best products to our customers, we want the best for ourselves!
Watch the video below to see how our decks are made. This is the actual factory that manufactures our boards. Not just something we found on the internet. We have proudly been using BBSMFG / Generator Distribution for almost the entire life of élan and have no intention of changing.The only difference to this video is that we print all our boards right here in Australia using the same method of heat transfer.
We are also the Australian agent for BBSMFG / Generator Dist and therefore can print and supply boards for other brands or shops. For any oem inquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org
