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.

DROP DOWN

A lowered foot platform provides the most stable ride and gives your feet pockets to lock into while skating. These boards are also easier for pushing and foot-breaking.

Made in Canada

Ohhh Canada Eh!

SYMMETRICAL

Go both ways with symmetrical board design. Generally found in freeride and downhill decks, these boards allow the rider to skate both regular and switch without changing up their stance.

Length: 36
Width: 9.5
Wheelbase: 27

BUY ITTTTTTTTT!!!!! :):):):)

Bought this board as my first longboard and it's no wonder it has such a reputation! Board is super dope in all areas! Love the cozy deck design :) Super smooth rides like butter, tasty carves and pump ability! I gots no complaints! (Yes, it may be a little pricey, but it's completely worth it for the quality of jazz and the amount of usage you're going to get out of the board! Go ahead and buy it! Treat yo self! :):):):):):):)

Smooth, balanced ride over multiple surface types

The Switchblade 40 offers a great platform with a comfortable ride on various surfaces. Uneven sidewalk joints and bumps are not a challenge at all for this board.

Love this deck!

Very easy to push and stop, awesome for long distances cruising. 36” is the best length for me! Right enough for the back foot to naturally place on the board after pushing. It is a bit on the heavy side but I am sure it is already lighter than the 38 and 40 inches decks and I have a light truck so it’s not a big problem for me lol.

Great board for a beginner

I’ve really enjoyed learning how to skate on this board. It’s taken me a little under a month to learn the basics well enough to bomb hills and carve at decent speeds around where I live. Footbraking is very easy because of the lowered deck. I’d say my only complaint is that the assembly quality (not the build quality, but rather things like lubricant application, mounting reliability, etc.) is a little lackluster, with the trucks mounting having come very loose after just a week of riding, and the trucks started squeaking recently as well. These are both easy issues to fix but it’s annoying as a beginner to have an issue like that since I’m not familiar with the normal aspects of maintenance of a board.
