With a board as wild as this, we thought it deserved a wild graphic as well. We don’t know where Alejandro Sordi came up with the idea to include a keyboard in this graphic, but it’s not the only keyboard in our lineup so we’re clearly big fans! The graphic isn’t the only trick this board has up its sleeve though, it also has an extremely unique shape, tons of rocker and a super low drop-through design for the ultimate longboard experience. The Drop Cat 38 is perfect for taller riders or people looking for a more stable ride. Take a journey on the Drop Cat 38.

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.

DROP THROUGH

Drop through decks are lower to the ground and enjoy increase stability without sacrificing maneuverability.

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.

ROCKER

Rocker provides a more comfortable foot platform by adjusting the deck angles to a skater’s natural stance. It also adds board control and increases responsiveness under your feet.

Length: 38.6"
Width: 9.9"
Wheelbase: 29.3"

This larger, directional drop-through longboard comes in at 38" long by 9.9" wide. 8 ply construction in a board of this size results in a tiny amount of dampening flex which works to smooth out your ride on any rougher roads while still being stiff enough to handle some speed and sliding. This board also has a healthy dose of rocker and aggressive concave to keep your feet comfortable and locked in place while freeriding. You will notice the flares starting to rise as your foot nears the four corners of the standing platform, which gives you great reference points, so you know exactly where your feet are without looking down. The longer wheelbase and larger turning circle of the 38” version of the Drop Cat means that you can savor each carve a little more and utilize a laid back, flowy riding style. Having a wider standing platform also allows you to spread your feet out more which makes it easier to balance and makes this board slightly more predictable than the smaller 33” version. The Drop Cat comes equipped with our flagship 50-degree 180mm Grizzly Gen 6 trucks ideal for deep carves and confident cruising as well as some big 72mm 78a Plow King wheels for a smooth, fast and super grippy 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!

This board is awesome.

It’s super comfortable to ride and it’s super stable. I don’t feel scared when going high speeds. One thing I love is that it can carry a lot of weight because I’m a bigger dude and I usually carry a backpack with me when riding. Overall a great board that is worth the price.
