Ride Style

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 litter 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.

Downhill - Downhill is like freefall; something to be experienced, not described. Downhill incorporates elements of carving, freestyle, and freeride with the main focus on the thrill of speed. Look for technical features using everything from fiberglass, to w-concave, urethane bumpers, and a plethora of materials. Get your full face helmet and pucks out, and head to the hills.

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 create pockets for your feet and shorter wheelbases, freeride boards are meant to make power slides as natural as your choice to skate.

Mounting Style

Top Mount - The classic skate mount. Trucks are mounted from the top to sit flush with the bottom of the board for that proven ride and feel (as opposed to drop-through mounts, which are mounted through the board to lower your center of gravity).

Deck Profile

Drop Down - Drop Down boards lower your center of gravity just like drop through constructed boards, the difference being that one is a mount style, and the other features a dropped down platform in the construction. Drop Down boards are constructed to dip down below where the trucks are mounted which means you're closer to the road, this style of board is used primarily for downhill riding because it offers more stability and control, and gives you more leverage when cornering and sliding.

Deck Shape

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.

Deck Features

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.

Mild 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. Mild 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 you can't go wrong if you don't already have a preference.

Deck Construction

Bamboo Construction - Bamboo is naturally durable, but much more flexible than standard maple wood used in most deck constructions.

Globe Bannerstone 41" Bamboo Longboard Deck - red/bamboo 2015
I've had my board for about two months now and am extremely satisfied. It arrived on time midway between the expected dates. Only negative I had was when I first got it it was heavier than expected, but I got used to it relatively quickly and have no qualms.

This board was worth every penny. Nice bit of flex to it, turns good, and has comfortable concave with foot pockets. The best part about this board is how it looks. Absolutely stunning, the bamboo base is such a sick look, and the clear grip doesn't get dirty too quickly. Very durable as well. BUY THIS BOARD

Excellent

Globe Bannerstone 41" Bamboo Longboard Deck
This is an awesome deck. Very smooth ride even when paired with low-quality wheels/bearings/trucks, and as responsive as anything else out there.

This deck is ultra-solid with virtually no flex whatsoever. It's also fairly heavy, but it's a 42", 10-ply deck, so that's to be expected.

Definitely worth more than what they're charging for it.

Awesome deck at AMAZING price

Globe Bannerstone 41" Bamboo Longboard Deck
This deck has a great ride and gets me a lot of compliments because of its unique look - the design is intricate, classy, and all-around awesome. It is quite thick (10-ply) but still light because it is bamboo, so it has a good amount of strength but is able to have relative flex on the road because of its lowered deck and the loose setting of the bearings. The best part about it was that I got it for $75!

This board rides like a dream. It is worth way more than what I payed. The ten plies of bamboo does require longer hardware
