FEATURES The Hipster Longboard is by design a very different board to the Style Lord. Evolving from the much loved Hipster Twin, the bottom contours and outline were stretched into the longboard variant. ✓The single concave runs from the nose all the way through the board which feeds into a double concave towards to the tail with a slight Vee running out the tail.
✓This produces a lot of speed and lift when you initiate a rail, with the double concave softening the single concave between the feet through chop, accelerating water flow and exhausting water out through the tail.
✓With the line drive which comes from a longer board, customers have exclaimed they’ve made It around sections they would have never made before.
✓When you step back to the tail, put the board on rail and start to drive, is where this is a longboard in a league of its own. Full speed accelerating shortboard turns built into a longboard. The carving sensation is also enhanced with super fine sensitive rails blocking out through the tail.
✓Nose riding is unaffected with the loss of the larger single fin, with the larger side fins being ample to keep you tacking whilst "up the front".
✓Hipster Twin Longboard Edition: Short board performance turns infused into a longboard.
RECOMMENDED FINS Fins included.
CONSTRUCTION: Biax Carbon PVC Performance
Using a full PVC sandwich construction method, the Biax Carbon PVC Performance is our lightest and strongest technology available, with the use of a full biaxial carbon deck, to inject energy and reflex into the board. The biaxial carbon is a 45 degree-angled weave that provides stiffness with a quick flex and reflex response, providing the crispest feel imaginable.
The lightweight EPS cores are CNC-cut for maximum precision and accuracy before being hand laminated and vacuum-bagged with a full 5mm high-density PVC foam which forms a hard shell around the lightweight EPS foam. Australian pine wood is used in the standing area to further prevent heel dents while the nose, tail, and leash plug insert are reinforced with additional carbon patches. It is the strongest, lightest, most durable construction on offer, proven over the years.
This used to be for custom orders only but moving forward, it is replacing our Parabolic Carbon PVC lay-up, integrating into the entire range for the full wrap PVC boards, and shaving a couple of hundred grams off the scales.
