We went all out creating what our fan’s wanted; a freerider’s dream board with drop-through mounting and double kicks. The mold we designed for this board has a very comfortable and effective concave featuring rocker, foot flairs, and mellow “W” running down the center. All this combined locks you in for downhill and sliding at speed while still comfortable for pushing. The kick-tails are shaped wide and long enough to actually use them in a functional and confident way to drop off curbs and lift up the wheels when riding. The mold was specially designed to strengthen the kick-tails and increase the overall durability.
Double the pleasure with two kicks to leverage whatever tricks you can imagine! With the lowered platform created by the drop-through mounting and rocker combo, this board is perfect for LDP as well. It makes it our most versatile design that’s able to do it all! We highly recommend it for beginner riders learning to longboard. It’s low riding, meaning easy to push, stable at speed, and easy to learn how to slide on. The intermediate rider will enjoy progressing with this stiff drop-thru freeride deck featuring really useful kick-tails.
Constructed solid and stiff with 8 plies of the highest quality longboard grade maple and laminated in our special mold with a non-toxic waterproof glue. The board is stained black on both sides leaving some natural wood grain showing through. The rails are left unstained with the natural wood color to highlight the shape and contours. The graphic design, last updated in November 2021, incorporates a topographical map featuring the surrounding hills of the notorious Portland Zoo Bomb run.
