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.

MEDIUM CAVE

The perfect middle ground, enough concave that you always feel glued to your board, but not too much to hurt your feet during a longer cruise.

MULTI WHEELBASE

Precisely dial in your ride with multiple mounting options for your trucks.

SOFT TOP GRIP

This grip tape has a layer of foam under its coarse top sheet. This helps hold your foot in place while reducing road vibration and creating an cushy, comfortable ride.

SURF SKATE

This set up combines our unique Bear Banger RKP front truck with a Polar Bear 155 in the rear for the ultimate surfy ride.

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!

Engaging

When I got the board I was originally looking for a longboard to ride around the city. As I was scrolling I came across this board. I was not familiar with surf skating, so I looked up some videos and was automatically hooked. I’ve had it for a few weeks now and honestly best board I have owned. The trucks made learning how to pump to generate more speed easy. The tail really adds a whole new level of fun at the skatepark. Would give a five but I have no other surf skate board to compare it too

A whole different experience

Watching videos of these surfskates doesn't really prepare you for what they feel like. The pumping is amazing, and the ride is unlike any other board I've ever had. It's a lot of fun. I expected it to be wobbly but its pretty stable because of the rear truck

Solid Fun Ride

Great surf skate. Lots of fun. The wheel base was a little short but I was able to drill two extra holes at the front and extend. Think of it more as a surf cruiser and you’ll be happy.

A Fun Way to Skate

I don’t surf and I don’t own any other surf skates. I’ve been skating my whole life however so i thought it would be a fun thing to try. Been riding my butter for about 6 months (in rotation with other boards) before reviewing. Love the look and the ride, but I did change out the stock wheels for some Cloud Ride Storm Chasers. The stock wheels are fun to slide but I don’t like how they can sometimes break loose when carving for speed. Love the overall package though and I sat down to write this review only because my legs needed a break!
