Our mission is to help support a positive and encouraging community for beginner-intermediate level skaters that is welcoming to, and celebrates diversity in all walks of life. Impala is for everyone! Not only do we want to bring more women to skateboarding, but we want women to feel empowered to face their fears and step into their power thanks to skateboarding.
Since we care about our planet and to follow our values, we have partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program - planting three trees for every one tree we harvest in the making of our skateboards.
Our skateboards are made by pressing thin layers (each layer is called a ‘ply’) of wood together, using epoxy-resin glue to hold each ply together. Why do we use epoxy-resin? Using epoxy-resin glue makes a skateboard lighter (because its higher strength allows us to use less glue), stronger, and longer lasting. Epoxy-resin is also superior to the industry standard water-based glue.
