- Andy Anderson
- Twin Nose
- 301 Shape
Twin Nose - Twin Nose decks are completely symmetrical, meaning both front and back kicks are the exact same size, shape and angle.
FLIGHT™ - FLIGHT™ decks are stronger, thinner and lighter than a 7-ply. You'll get the feel of it in an hour or two and begin to realize you can do things riding a Flight deck that cannot be done on a 7-ply. Flight decks allow you to extend your limits, because they let you ollie higher, flip faster, do tricks more easily, and they don't break in two like a 7-ply.
All Powell FLIGHT™ decks are made at their factory located in Santa Barbara, California.
301 Shape - Nose and tail are wide and stubbed for predictable pop and comfortable footing and flicking. Deck is symmetrical and has egged rails for chip evasion when hitting the ground.

The result: I think I will be skating this shape for as long as Powell keeps making it. It has the stability of an 8.75 while having the controllability and nimbleness of an 8.25. The slight egg shape provides greater surface area that makes landing tricks consistently that much easier, the pockets are perfectly placed for flip tricks, and the squared off nose and tail are responsive in all the right ways.
Overall, it's clear that a lot of thought and care went into this board and I'm glad that I get to enjoy the result so much.
