“I will never forget my first visit to Luke’s factory – I was on the tail end of a nearly month-long shaping trip through Europe. I had done about 60 hand shaped boards in the previous two and a half weeks through two or three different countries; and had worked myself into a serious flu by the time I rocked up on Luke’s factory door. I had about 30 boards to get through there and no energy to do it.
The guys made me feel so at home and looked after – walking me across the way to get cold medicine to keep me upright and cranking away and keeping me stoked and fired up enough to keep going. I got through the work and learned about their operation while holed up in their shaping bay – to meet another young and passionate builder left an indelible mark on my subconscious – it only feels right to connect once more, to get LoveMachine’s wheels turning for my friends and customers in the UK!”
