Eastside’s third version of the popular Blazer Drop-Down board featuring a 5/8″ dropped platform. This creates a lower riding platform for more stability and nice wedged pockets to lock your feet into. This symmetrical shape with a lot of standing platform (26″) is made for medium to larger riders with a wider stance. It’s a great board for beginners in general making it easier to learn to longboard with. The Blazer V3 is constructed with 9 plies of thick longboard grade maple. It can hold heavier riders without flex and labeled our big and tall board! And it can do it all: Freeride, Downhill, and Pushing Distance.
The Blazer is available in both Drop-Through or Top-Mount. We suggest Drop-Through for newer riders just learning to longboard. This board is really easy to push with and learn slides on by being lower to the ground. It’s also really stable for downhill and speed in general. We suggest Top-Mount for heavier riders over 225 pounds and/or for faster freeriding and downhill by giving you more grip and leverage over the wheels. You can always mount the trucks top-mount on the Drop-Through version as an added option. New updates for the Blazer V3 is a new mold with a deeper 5/8″ concave, mild W, and larger foot pockets all working altogether for an even more locked in ride. The shape is the same as the V2 with big wheel cutouts for bigger wheels up to 85mm.
Recommended wheels 70-85mm with no wheelbite with loose 180mm trucks.
