Laurent Golay

LGS Board ManufactureBoardmaker

In the middle of the wild countryside of the Vallée de Joux, right next to some of the world's finest watchmakers, is a very special workshop crafting custom-made wooden boards, from skateboards to longboards, powsurfs to SUP-boards. Owner Laurent Golay trained as a carpenter before opening the workshop in 2000. He harnesses traditional woodworking techniques and modern materials to create one-of-a-kind boards inspired by his surroundings. “Like this beautiful forest and these watchmakers’ stunning masterpieces, I want my products to last – if possible for a lifetime,” he says, adding: “I am happy thinking that every rider knows he's riding a unique board with a real identity and soul.”
