Tar Barrel L


The Tar Barrel is the heart and soul of Uitto, a versatile, lightweight wooden skimboard for anyone who’s craving to get their feet wet. It is sturdy and built to withstand the elements, but we’ve still managed to keep it really lightweight allowing you to land even the toughest tricks. The new cork-grip eliminates the need to use waxes and works just as well when wet. We have tested the boards leaving prototypes outside with no protection for up to two years, summer and winter, and they perform like new! Handcrafted from the best materials and finished in the unique Uitto- style, the Tar Barrel is a board you just can’t leave home when you head down to your favourite beach!


Story behind Tar Barrel

Tar was the first product to be globally exported from Finland, dating back to the 14th century. Tar barrels were used to ship the precious product and constructed to endure. On average, a tar barrel maker would only make three barrels per day. Upon completion, they were meticulously inspected and branded only if the barrel was of the highest standard. We at Uitto ensure our boards are up to the same standard. We handcraft our skimboards the traditional and hard way, just to be sure you get the best board possible. Just like the tar, each of our board is inspected thoroughly before branding it with the Uitto brand.
