The Tabor is our classic model that first launched Eastside Longboards in 2003. It’s a perfect size hybrid longboard to get around with that anyone can ride. It’s not too big for smaller riders and kids, and it’s easier to ride than a regular size skateboard. The Tabor is a solid choice for a first longboard to learn on for both youngsters and adults. It comes complete with high quality longboarding trucks and wheels that are stable and smooth for riding on streets and down hills.
The Tabor is named after a dormant volcano and Portland’s most famous longboarding run Mt.Tabor. We created this longboard originally as an alternative for the everyday commuter by having a skateboard shape with a useful kicktail to maneuver the urban terrain with. This latest version has more concave and bigger kicks that create an even more responsive ride. The Tabor is constructed with 7 plies of extra thick longboard grade maple veneer and non-toxic waterproof glue. The wheel-wells are designed for Reverse Kingpin (RKP) trucks such as Caliber and Paris 50 degree trucks. Recommended wheels 65-70mm.
Trademark carry Handle is reliable and sturdy for traveling through the busy city life. You’ll be ready to throw down, pick up, and ride in between the chaos and traffic. You can also order this board the Tabor with No Handle as an Option. Graphic shows the view of Downtown Portland from the lower Eastside.
