Asphalt NYC: The couple behind DL Skateboards handcraft decks and sell them out of a truck
The ultimate skateboard power couple
Derek Mabra and his girlfriend Lauren Andino are the couple behind a unique DIY skateboard brand, DL Skateboards. Mabra carves all the surf-inspired retro skateboards out of wood by hand and Andino finishes and paints them. In this episode of Asphalt NYC we find out a little more about DL (the D is for Derek, and the L is for Lauren), including how the couple sell their boards out of a truck, and how Mabra got back into skating because he didn't want his girlfriend to be better than him. Although DL Skateboards started in Brooklyn, Mabra and Andino have decided to move to Southern California to keep the brand growing.
