This is not your Grandfather’s log. I stripped this log down and threw a V-8 under the hood. It’s thinned down for responsiveness and has a step-tail with subtle edge the last few inches for an added burst of speed out of turns and hold from the nose. With a full bottom concave that provides speed, lift, and minimizes set-up time for noserides, this model has been my “go-to” longboard for the last two years. It can noseride with the best of them but won’t hinder you from walking back, cranking a big turn or racing a fast section.
