CHICAGO — Chick Magneto’s Longboard was voted the best longboard in 2016 by a panel of media members at the 2016 International Longboard and BMX Show in Chicago.
The board is made of steel with a titanium frame, a carbon fiber bottom, titanium handlebars and carbon fiber wheels.
Chick was featured in the 2016 short film The Ride, which premiered at the International Longboarding and BMx Show.
Magneto and his crew are now working on a custom Longboard.
Magneto said the award was an honor given to him and his team, who put together a unique combination of styles that combine longboard and skateboard.
He said the awards were given to a “board of champions.”
Magnetos board won the title of the best skateboard in the world.
The competition was between four other skateboard brands: Hennessey, Avanti, Sperry and Skyscraper.
The winners were revealed in an exclusive interview with the Associated Press.
