Freeriding

 

 

When choosing a freeride board, only the sky is the limit. No matter if you want to go switch after a slide or bomb down a hill, the symmetrical shape will never bail on you.

 

The best setting for these types of boards is a so called drop thru truck construction. In combination with wide trucks and harder wheels this is the embodiment of stability and will be your definite weapon for never-ending asphalt-slides. All in all Freeride Boards are perfect all-rounders due to their wide stance – no matter if you are a rookie or pro.

Carving

 

 

WTF?! A surfboard with wheels? – Exactly! In Carving Boards you can see the origin of longboarding right away. Back then surfers were looking for an alternative for flat days and tried to install wheels on planks or surfboards – the Carving Board was born. Nowadays this shape has become the incarnation of excellent performance since their pin/kick tail grants sick corner maneuvering and due to their wide stance these boards also suit very well for beginners.

 

If you are a skater looking for an unforgettable driving experience and want to bring some chilled surf flair to the streets, then you are dead right here.

Speedboard

 

 

This category is dedicated to all the speed freaks out there that need to have their daily adrenalin rush.

 

The shape of these boards reminds us of Calmar’s heads and offers an extremely tough deck that usually is made of 7-9 layers of maple wood and therefore is almost indestructible – no crash to tough no slide to massive. Mostly the trucks are quite wide and are put on in the drop thru way, which provides a lower stance and therefore loads of stability and smoothness, which will make you go as quick as greased lightning. But please: never go downhill without the proper protective equipment!
