The size of the longboards in our shop reach from 80 up to 120 cm length and are available in different flex variations or as „one size“ boards. Flex describes the given elasticity and should be suitable to your body weight. Whether your board should be flexy, medium or stiff depends on your favors for handling and what discipline you want to use your board for.
Freeride: You like slides and speed? You should choose one of the symmetric twintip boards. Here, little flex is combined with tail- and nosekicks.
Carving: More flex for a maximum of agility. “Cutout-shapes“ leave space around the wheels of your board to avoid wheelbites.
Cruising: Similar to skateboards, cruisers come with a tail and nose. Classic kicktail shapes even allow ollies and airs.
In our shop you find ''topmount'' and ''dropthrough'' versions which differ in the way you mount the trucks to your board. Topmount trucks are put on from the bottom, while dropthrough trucks get screwed on from the top.„Flushcuts“ are recesses of the boards in the truck area in which the baseplate gets flushed in the deck. Dropthroughs are more likely to be used for freeride and downhill boards while topmount trucks are preferred at cruisers.
In our longboard section you'll find boards that are made from maple, bamboo and plastic or a hybrid-construction of fiber-glass or epoxy resincombined with wood.
