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.
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.
Rocker - The rocker profile can be seen from the side and is identified as a slight smile. Rocker decks are great for both downhill and freeride. You'll feel snug and secure on a rocker profile and this is especially useful for freeride beginners.
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.
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.
Adjustable Wheel Base - Sometimes you want a highly maneuverable setup that can navigate around people and cars in the city and turn on a dime. Other times you want a longer wheelbase for stability at speed. A board with an adjustable wheel base will have multiple truck mounting positions so you can change your setup according to your environment.
Waterproof - Full composite construction, urethane rails and urethane truck mounts create a waterproof, sealed deck with added vibration dampening. You can ride year around in any weather condition with confidence – without fear of de-lamination or cracking due to water penetrating the wood core.
Urethane Rails and Truck Mounts - Full urethane rails and truck mounts offer industry leading durability. These curb breaking rails will keep your deck on the street longer than most decks.
Precision Machined Truck Mount - Moonshine truck mounts are 100% level. Urethane truck mounts are precision machined for trusted accuracy. This translates to confidence and performance at high speeds.
Compression Molded CNC Machined Wheel Wells - All wheel wells are machined prior to the deck's compression molding process. This delivers additional structural integrity compared to traditional longboards where structural integrity is lost after pressing.
Wheel wells help prevent wheel bite by providing more clearance between the wheel and the underside of your deck. More wheel clearance allows you to take sharper turns without experiencing bite.
Laser Cut Roam Griptape - Factory installed, laser cut Roam grip tape keeps you locked in.
