By popular request here is the DK DropKick. It is based off one of our oldest designs, the Carbon DropKick. 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 concave featuring rocker, foot flairs, and mellow “W”. The kick-tails are shaped wide enough to actually use them in a functional and confident way to drop off curbs and lift up the wheels when riding.
Double the pleasure with two kicks to leverage whatever tricks you can imagine! With the lowered platform created by the drop-through and rocker combo, this lightweight board is perfect for LDP as well. This makes it our most versatile design that’s able to do it all. We highly recommend it for the beginner rider or anyone seeking an agile yet stable freeride deck with really useful kicks.
Constructed with the highest quality 8 ply maple laminated with waterproof resin instead of traditional wood glue. This makes for a stronger bond between plies and increases the life of the board making it last many more years. The whole board is painted black and finished with and a non toxic silk screened graphic. The design is a topographical map featuring the surrounding hills of the Portland Zoo Bomb run.
