Since the beginning of FratBoards, we have had an odd relationship with Facebook. To put it simply: they wont leave us alone. First off, they jacked our initials. And if they went a bit more neon-blueish, they would have jacked our color scheme as well. It is clear that Mark Zuckerberg saw the brilliance of FratBoards, and was trying to ride the wake of cash that would inevitable ensue their release to the world. It is unclear wether the popularity of Facebook is purely a result of FratBoards success, or wether it too has its own merits.
Instead of being angry, we have decided to take a more pro-active approach: send a letter to Mark Suckerberg challenging him to a game of beer pong. In order to persuade him, we have started adopting some of his so called "Face Book" as we think it is only fair, given his means of transportation.
It took a while for me to find that picture. But anyways. We now have a storefront integrated with Facebook. (Thanks to a startup called payvment). Let us know what you think of it. You get a discount for "liking" the Facebook Page. Check it out at facebook.com/fratboards.
Alright, heres how it works.
1. We give you a unique link.
2. You post that link on facebook, twitter, whatever.
3. For every one of your friends that buys a board from that link, you get $5 bucks cash, and they get a free integrated bottle opener.

Here at FratBoards we are always trying to provide the bros of the world with the most enjoyable product possible. However, we understand that not all bros are the same, and although we all enjoy fratting, we have unique desires. Because of this, you can now customize the bottom of your board. All of our boards now have this option (the FratBoard Cruiser and the Novelty FratBoard). If you have an idea for a design, throw it in that box, along with any text you want us to include and links to images. Be as specific as possible, because its pretty tough to scrape off a skateboard decal.
The FratBoard Team
Our mission to merge and spread skating and fratting will only end when we buy the White House and rename it the "Frat House" and all employees use frat boards as their only means of transportation. President of the US needs to meet with the president of Mexico? thats only 97 days by frat board.
This future world will be much more peaceful. Rival nations will settle disputes with gigantic beer-pong tournaments. If that doesnt do the trick, wars will be fought with, well, frat boards. Until you can reach us at "FratHouse.gov" use our email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Frat Board Team
Hello Bros and Girls,
We spent a while thinking about the best way to integrate a bottle opener in a frat board. We thought about those Reef sandals with bottle openers on the bottom, even just screwing on a wall mount bottle opener. However, one day, we had a stroke of genius. Instead of screwing on some separate metal piece, why not just utilize the truck itself. After having a few mishaps involving the concept of leverage, we resolved to simply incorporate the bottle opener into the riser. We spent a solid hour chiseling away with a hunting knife, to perfect the design.
After many prototypes: it doesnt get in the way, and you just stick the bottle in, and pull it out, and it somehow just de-capitates itself. Heres a picture of how it works, even Willis approves.
