About me

I am a shaper

I am Kent Lingeveldt, a skateboarder, father, boardshaper and photographer from Cape Town, South Africa. I have been skating for 27 years and shaping boards for 20 years. Offering quality handcrafted skateboards to a global market and being able to skate daily is what drives me.
