With a functional kicktail this board is capable of ollies so nothing can get in your way. The directional shape, stiffness, and three-stage rocker all work together to provide a stable downhill board that reduces leg fatigue so you can preform better and have fun longer. Grab a camera, your helmet, and your slide gloves before venturing out the door when you have the Darkside on your side because you'll want to push your limits and capture the gnar on tape.

Downhill - A longboard designated for downhill is crafted specifically for high speeds. Get your full face helmet and head to the hills.
Freeride - Featuring concaves that create pockets for your feet and shorter wheelbases, freeride boards are meant to make power slides as natural as your choice to skate.
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.
Micro Drop - Micro Drop skateboards give skaters more spots to lock in your feet for steep hills and long standees.
Rocker - Rocker decks are great for both downhill and freeride. You'll feel snug and secure on a rocker profile and is especially useful for freeride beginners.
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.
Adjustable Wheelbase - A board with an adjustable wheelbase will have multiple truck mounting positions so you can find what exact wheelbase works best for you. Move your axles in for quicker pop, increased agility, higher traction, and lower swing weight; move them out for greater stability and more lean.
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.
Deep Concave - Deep concave is like a bucket-seat for your feet. It offers supreme leverage for slides and provides a platform in the middle for downhill riding when you want your speed tuck to be pristine for the whole heat.
Years of riding longboards, intense trial and error and tapping into their team of pro riders results in a whole bunch of super technical stuff. Read on tech-head!
Pre-Tensioned Fiberglass - Adds long life, durability, strength and energy return to the board.
Vert-Lam Bamboo Core - Stronger than steel, light like a feather.
Sublimated Artwork - Scratch resistant ink is tattooed into the deck.
Sharp Edge - Final touch for locked in feet.
Bee Orange Finish - Each and every Rayne board is sealed with an orange beeswax finish. This enhances and tones the natural wood grain while protecting with an excellent wax barrier that repels water. The citrus based polish is completely free of harmful chemicals and is an environmentally sustainable product.
Missionary - The standard, the classic sandwich construction you know and love
Mean Concave - Concave designed to be steeper in the middle to give you both pockets and gas pedals
Radial Concave - Just like taking corners, one smooth line from edge to edge keeps your feet right where you want them.
Speed-Stiff - Don't get bounced, stiff boards will make you stable at high speeds
Darkside Series - These hybrid boards cross over a love of radial drops for DH leverage, control and lock-in with a high-functioning kick tail to get up, over and around everything and anything.
