    Technical Overview:

       This lightweight, directional downhill/freeride deck was designed to be a missle. The standing platform has concave and rocker.



       All artwork is original by FB artist, we scan it and print it on a high visibility reflective decal/sticker. The high visibility reflective decal/sticker is lot like the material used for road signs, when light hits it, it reflects and "lights up" making the artwork POP, that much more! As an added bonus, it could save your life when walking up a hill during low light situations, because cars will light up the board and be able to see you better.


    We apply to the board after fiberglassing and then add a few hot coats of epoxy to seal it in for a glossy finish. The Lard is available with the following artwork...


    "Circles of  Life" by Jered Fykes

    "Faceplant (FB) Body Parts" by Jered Fykes


    We welcome custom artwork inquiries, choose the "custom art" and email us your design/ideas. *Subject to price increase depending on scope of custom artwork.

    • Shredability

         This longboard was built to go fast!  The simplistic design makes it easy to ride and can take the high speed abuse.  Slight rocker and concave lock your feet in for a comfortable tuck and riding stance.  The smaller length and wheelbase make this board very responsive.  Hold on tight and send it on the First Mate!
