This all-around weapon can handle just about anything thrown its way. A 9-ply maple plus a Red Gum wood top-construction makes for a durable and stiff ride that's ideal for mellow downhill riding. The board is great for cruising around town and technical freestyle as well. An advanced drop through shape and Paris 180mm trucks provides responsive turning, and the large 29.25" wheelbase is great for distance pushing.
Commuter - Commuter boards cover a wide range. Whether you're cruising to the store on a beverage run or crossing from suburbs to downtown and back on the daily, commuting boards are made to make your life a little easier and a lot more fun.
Shorter boards in this category make up the cruising department. Some have functional kicktails, but they're still made to fit large wheels so you won't get hung up on any rocks. Some are even small enough they can fit in lockers or under a work desk.
Longer boards are made for distance skaters. With features like rocker, flex, and anything to lower your center of gravity, commuting boards make skating feel like you have your own cloud underfoot. These boards are really great for beginners and experienced riders alike.
Never make the boring mistake of walking again, get your commute on.
Freeride - Much of skateboarding has been created by people who push the envelope on what is thought to be possible. Freeride is a direct result of this. Slide pucks and buttery wheels are your best friends once you have freeride on your mind. Often featuring concave that creates pockets for your feet and shorter wheelbases, freeride boards are meant to make power slides as natural as your choice to skate.
Carving & Pintail - Deep carves, boardwalk cruising, and mellow hills are calling you. This is the traditional Californian longboard and is still relevant today. You'll find the longest wheelbases in this category meant for big turns and a large surface area for dancing.
Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity, giving you a more responsive and stable ride. Trucks are mounted through the board and truck bases will sit either flush or slightly above the deck surface. Great for high speed assaults or even cruising around town to your local watering hole.
Note: If assembling yourself, you'll first need to remove your longboard truck hanger from its base by unscrewing the kingpin. Once separated, reassemble the trucks through the mounting area (sandwiching the board between the hanger/base of the truck), then tighten the kingpin nuts and you're ready to roll.
Camber - Camber gives you a charged feeling underfoot and better leverage for turns. Camber boards can feel a bit more like a spring at first, but any rider will appreciate how this makes the board responsive. Camber boards are especially fun for commuter decks, freestyle, and cruisers where you'll be carving a lot.
Symmetrical - Symmetrical boards are ideal for freeride and freestyle. The freeride pros will tell you that figuring out how to come out of a slide switch is not an easy task and having a symmetrical deck underfoot will help you speed through the learning curve to the top of the class. Freestyle skaters love their double kicks and reliable symmetrical boards to land flip tricks. So if these pursuits sound like your style, check out symmetrical boards.
Cutouts - With big wheels you need lots of room to carve and dig into turns, cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite while cutouts for your trucks appear on drop through decks so you can ride closer to the ground.
Medium Concave - With the right concave underfoot you'll feel you can skate anything. Concavity can be seen if you look at a board straight down the nose to the tail. Medium concave shows as a slight rise towards the edges of the deck giving your feet plenty of places to lock in. Choosing the right concave can be tough because it's all personal preference, but medium concave is really good place to start if you don't know your preference.
9-Ply Maple + Red Gum Wood Top - Hard rock maple construction, farmed from sustainable sources, and a finish ply of Red Gum Wood.
Paris 180mm Trucks - Paris longboard trucks are taking the industry by storm with a purer metal, greater strength, and quicker turns than the industry standard. Paris 180mm Trucks are ready to bomb any hills that you can throw at them.
ABEC 5 Bearings - ABEC 5 bearings give you a smooth, long-lasting silky glide, so you can keep rollin' with minimal resistance.
