Hand cast aluminum with bamboo
The Original is FluidStance's category-creating deck. Its premium base is sand cast by hand in California using a "Green Sand Process" to limit waste and increase strength with .250" walls of military-grade aluminum. This hand-casting process generates zero waste, with the sand molds being recycled and excess aluminum trimmings being placed back into the supply chain. The top deck, a solid half-inch of three-ply bamboo made with low-emitting materials, is CNC milled and finished in a local woodshop. Final etching is completed within 5 miles of our offices in Santa Barbara.
The Artist Edition, created in collaboration with Santa Barbara-based artist R. Nelson Parrish, features a lighter top deck that unites a textile sublimation process with composite technology that came to the forefront of surfboard manufacturing in the 1960s.

If your FluidStance® product has a manufacturing defect, we will repair or replace the defective part at no additional cost to you based on the following timelines:
The Original® and Level® have lifetime guarantees against manufacturing defects.
The Plane® and all FluidStance accessories have a limited one-year guarantee against manufacturing defects with proof of purchase.
If your Plane®, Level®, or Original requires repair due to normal wear and tear, we will do the repairs—including wood resurfacing, base painting, or bumper replacement—at a minimal cost to you (estimated on a case by base basis). We also welcome all exchanges of products in like-new condition for 30 days past the purchase date.
We understand that you need to step on a deck to get a sense of how it feels and flows. If you decide that the product simply isn’t for you, we ask that you return it to us in the original packaging in like-new condition. Once your return arrives, we will issue you a refund of the cost of your items and any sales tax. If the product shows signs of wear and tear, we will deduct $40 from the refund to recondition it.
Because we are unable to recondition FluidStance accessories, we unfortunately cannot accept returned accessories—including mats and racks—that display wear and tear. Accessories in like-new condition can be returned or exchanged.
FluidStance reserves the right to determine what constitutes a manufacturing defect or wear and tear, but we believe in building a culture of mutual trust and respect—we’ve got your back.
Contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
