One Board One Tree

To give back to the environment we have decided that for every skateboard we sell, we plant a tree. One tree produces at least 60 boards. So with our program, one tree will turn into at least 60 new trees planted.

100% Canadian Maple

Canadian Maple is a strong and proven material used in the world’s best skateboards. We source only the finest veneers found in Eastern Canada.

Kicktail

Take your skating into the third dimension with a kicktail. We design our kicktails to work perfectly with each deck shape as well as with the truck and wheel setup on each complete.

LOW CAVE

Mellow concave that barely feels like it’s there, but designed to give you the control you need, when you need it.

SANDED WHEEL WELLS

Wheel wells reduce the risk of wheel-bite by increasing the gap between wheels and deck. Sanded or CNC’d wheel wells both allow for larger wheels or looser trucks, if desired.

Length: 28.5
Width: 8.5
Wheelbase: 15

A slight variation on the Dinghy shape that we've come to refer to as Shape 9", this board is 28.5" long and 8.5" wide. The most noticeable features are the distinctively squared off nose and extra-wide tail. This shape performs similarly to the classic Dinghy but the unique shape is sure to draw its share of attention. The BK is pressed with 7 plies of Canadian maple for a light, stiff and poppy ride. It comes set up with Polar Bear 105mm trucks for maximum agility and a super-tight turning circle. 63mm 78a Fatty Hawgs wheels finish off the setup and ensure you'll have a smooth ride with plenty of roll speed and grip without having to worry about wheelbite.

Flex Rating

So, what’s flex and why is it important to a skateboard? In skate-nerd terms, flex is the amount of displacement a deck sees when a specific amount of force is applied to it. Check out our formula to the left! There are a few factors that affect flex, like deck thickness, wheelbase, and the amount of force on a deck. We built a machine and put our entire lineup to the test by applying the exact same amount of force to all our boards and measured the displacement we saw in each. This gives a totally scientific and accurate flex range across our entire line! It’s important to understand flex when choosing a board. Here are some basics: Downhill/freeride skateboards will have less flex because you need a stiff platform to stand on when you’re bombing or gripping a corner at speed. Carving skateboards will have more flex, giving you the ability to sink into your turns and pump or carve with ease. Most cruisers, dance and ATV boards will have less flex for control when doing tricks but just enough to be forgiving when pushing around town. We’ve engineered our boards with the best flex for each style of riding but remember, flex is subjective so get out a see what you like the most!

Great set up for a smooth ride!

I’ve been wanted a cruiser board for a bit now and landed on this one. At first I was a little confused on if I got the right board or not because the pictures show wood featured above the wheels and on the edge around the board. Mine is just painted over. I looked at other reviews and it seems that they might have changed the design. Over all I really like this set up and having a lot of fun on it. I am a beginner so I’m still getting used to skateboarding in general.

Great board!

Rides well, the fenders feel good under my feet. The bearings are super smooth. Only thing is that when it rests on the ground only 3 wheels touch the ground at a time but it rides normally under my weight.

Awesome Board even took it bowl shredding

So much fun! and so fast and carvy. I took it to the local skate park just to see how it did on a bowl and had a blast with it.
