This hybrid longboard has a slightly shorter wheelbase than most longboards and comes with kicktails, opening up opportunities for ollies, manuals, and quick kick turns for easy navigation. Wheel wells will let you mount some beastly wheels, and a gentle rocker will keep you locked in and close to the ground. Welcome to the Darkside.

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.
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.
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.
Double Kicks - With a kicktail at the nose and tail of the board, ollies and flip tricks will become part of your arsenal. Double kicks are most often found on freestyle boards, but can add versatility to any skateboard.
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!
Vert-Lam Bamboo Core - Stronger than steel, light like a feather.
Triaxial Fiberglass - Reinforces the bamboo and makes a board that is extremely light, durable, and won't sag.
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.
