Commuter - Longboards for general cruising, ideal for experienced skaters and beginners alike. Never make the boring mistake of walking again!
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.
Standard - Standard decks are the most predictable and some swear they break-in better than other profiles. Great for any skill level.
Directional - Directional decks may have a dramatically asymmetrical shape or just a slight taper which can be great for anything from mild cruising to intense downhill; but of course it's all just preference.
Kicktail - Kicktails on longboards can be used to ollie, manual, and do flip tricks just like on a regular skateboard.
Wheel Wells/Flares - For the boards that don't need full wheel cutouts, wheel wells are beveled out of the board to give the extra clearance needed to avoid wheelbite.
Mild Concave - Most longboards have a mild concave to give your feet natural curves to lock into. Choosing the right concave can be tough because it's all personal preference but mild concave is always a good place to start.
8-Ply - 8 plies sandwiched together for solid stiffness and control.
Hard Rock Maple Construction - This is the standard of all skateboards and longboards. Hard rock maple has proven to be durable and responsive underfoot.
6.0" Slant Trucks - High-grade alloy construction and hardware, engineered to stand up to the most abusive skateboarding. All Slant trucks are guaranteed for life.
Globe 62mm 78a Wheels - Stone ground, soft, and center set, these wheels won't let you down.
ABEC 7 Bearings - ABEC 7 bearings are highly precise and turn faster for longer. A precise bearing means that it has a higher tolerance to heat caused by friction.
Didn't think about getting a new board after that. It was my Favorite board. Then the Fates decided a puppy should be in my life ... a black lab puppy. I thought, what would be the funnest way we could work off such super energy dog ... A Long Board.
After skating around the warehouse on this board,
I Love It. Transitioning from a short board to a long board will take a couple more weeks. The best thing was getting on this board felt natural.
