Our Board Building Process
Which Board Style Should I Choose?
These are easily recognizable with the trademark cleft in the tail, that's we why call them fishtail. Fishtail longboards are practically Pintails, but turns can be sharper, and carving is easier. This is because of steeper radial concave, they outplay a kicktail.
Fishtails have more heel and toe control because of its low flex and sharper concave. Crazy wide carving and speed checks are a breeze. All paired with a classic surf style - no reason they are popular.
Pintail longboards have a teardrop shape that allows deep carving with a minimum risk of wheelbite. For cruising and carving on flat surfaces and hilltops, they are your best bet.
Pintails are awesome for beginners, because of the larger platform for the rider's feet. A pintail longboard is high because of top-mounted trucks.
Double-Kick longboards carry good stability with their lower nose and deck. Pushing becomes easier making it conducive for a long comfortable ride. Ample wheel clearance is a feature of drop-down longboards paired with cut out shaped decks.
The Malakai longboard was designed as a carver board perfect for slashing up the pavement while commuting around town. This is a great option for a new skater looking to start carving a little more and the experienced rider needing something responsive and fun. It's ideal for controlled tight carves and increased maneuverability.
