Cruising around on the Globe Pintail is an absolute blast! Especially when you look down and catch a glance of the beautiful spliced maple topsheet beneath your feet. This board is perfect for any rider, from a beginner ripper to anyone looking for a great board for transportation. The Pintail is ideal for everything from class commutes to cruising around the streets or beach. You will feel a comfortable flex on this board as you fluidly glide around, just like surfing on concrete.
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.
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.
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).
Standard - For the rider that just wants a solid plank underfoot without reactive camber or mellow rocker, the standard deck will deliver exactly what you see in the picture. A favorite for technical downhill, standard decks are the most predictable and some swear they break-in better than other profiles.
Directional - Directional boards might have concave towards the front, maybe the tail is tapered, it could be shaped to have a fatter nose than tail, and it probably feels awkward if you hop on backwards. However, when you want to pump a board, or you want to have something that sets you up for the fastest line, directional boards are great. Whether you are looking for a really responsive directional board for carving and cruising or a precision downhill deck, a directional board could be in your future.
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.
8-Ply Hard Rock Maple Construction - 8 plies of hard rock maple for a durable and stiff ride. This construction method is great for carving and cruising, providing a responsive and secure feel under your feet.

Slant Inverted Trucks come with reversible hangers, so you can choose between a 50° or 54° angle. They come stock at 50°, which provides greater stability at high speeds, but if you want to execute tighter turns feel free to flip that hanger to 54°.
Globe 65mm 78a Wheels - These wheels are designed to let you cruise over bumps for a smooth, carefree ride.
