Drop Deck 43" - Black Wave (Natural)
- Product Review (submitted on September 22, 2013):
I was looking for extra stability (over a flat deck, top mounted board) while not losing that much carve on flatish trails and longer pushes with some mellow maneuvering -as dry land fun on non surfing days- When I placed my foot on the Black Wave at the store, I knew this was it. On first push I was greeted by the reassuring stability I was looking for. The concave footwells are so cool, they give a sense of conectedness with the board and the slightly rolled rails keep the carve alive.
The construction of the board is solid, the grip is fail-proof, the slight flex tames the rough pavement. Being uni directional and paired with Bear flippable trucks, I was able to fine tune the ride to my taste-more responsive front, tamer back-.
Last but not least, the black inked graphics on natural wood give it a timeless appearance, on a high tech and well designed longboard.
