When developing an OLAF backpack, we knew that we will need to develop new gadgets that will be useful in everyday life when using our OLAF Urban. Although almost any bag can fit to the platform, we still wanted to make something new. Yes both, the bag and the wooden basket can fit to your […]
Our friend Eva is a very dynamic person and a busy traveller. As such, her OLAF just had to follow her personal style and preferences. First, she decided to fully personalise our OLAF scooter-suitcase, and design her own logo to be engraved on the board. She posted a job as a ‘Contest’ on Freelancer.com, the world’s […]

Business case – in production We added a few more interior pockets (there are never enough pockets within your […]

Both new panels will be made out of combinations of EVA material and extra padding with specially chosen […]
When Boštjan asked me how we are shoot it to present it to the longboard and skate crowd I felt sceptical. It felt kind of wrong – coming from (some skate and much more) snowboard background I share the sentiment of the deck with 90 degree stance and have been mocking the monoskis and the […]
