Dreamed up by a group of employees at a factory in the sleepy Pacific Northwest town of North Bonneville, Moonshine MFG is a product of imagination, collaboration and grass-roots innovation.
While building high-tech wood-core wake and kiteboards for Slingshot Sports, workers at the factory- many of whom were passionate skateboarders- realized they could apply the same materials, machinery and manufacturing techniques to produce skateboards unlike anything else on the market.
Employees were given the resources and creative freedom to experiment and build their own boards on their own time, and before long their passion and creativity fused into something special. As prototypes took shape, high-level skaters were enlisted to test the best designs, and their feedback was loud and clear:
The factory gave up its name, Moonshine, to the new skate brand and assumed a new identity, The Distillery, under which it would produce the Moonshine skateboards and continue production of Slingshot kite and wakeboards.
Reflecting the demand for longboards of this caliber, Moonshine MFG has gone from grass roots inception to international acclaim in one action-packed year. We now have a wide range of distinct boards on our lineup and in skate shops across the globe, as well as our own line of White Lightning grip and slip wheels.
What we knew from the beginning we are now hearing loud and clear from our happy customers: Moonshine boards are simply unrivaled by anything else on the market. Every board is hand crafted in North Bonneville, Washington by our factory The Distillery.
