This coming Friday Rayne Longboards will be hosting an AMA where you get to ask the questions you've always wanted to ask. All you have to do is jump onto reddit between 4 and 8pm friday the 26th and post up your question! Check it out here.

Without sounding too braggadocios... You’ve undoubtedly heard of Rayne Longboards, and if you haven’t, you’ve most certainly skated a concave or shape inspired by Rayne design.

Rayne came to be in 2004 when there were few options for decks and even fewer performance decks. Founded by Graham Buksa, an engineering student at the time, Graham put his knowledge and skills to good work integrating form and function to create some damn sexy decks and introduced the scene to concaves with a greater focus on skate-ergonomics, quality and the future (oooohh, aaahhh, the future!).

Haters gunna hate, especially at the beginning and there’s some funny proof of that on Silverfish, but Rayne stayed true to the rule: “Better, best, different” and made it to where they are today - under your feet or ahead of you down the hill :)

The dudes who are involved in this AMA are Les Robertson: The Regulator; Aidan Lynds: The BC Grom turned Pro, and Tommy Watson: The Tech Head.

Together they have over 6 months of skating under their belts and can switch 180, Ollie, and double pendy. Oh and Patrick Switzer might show up for a bit, but he's a kook anyways.

Check some of Rayne's travel debauchery HERE, and otherwise, we'll see you all then!
