The Powell Peralta Byron Essert Frog model longboard is the ultimate all around downhill and free ride board. This abnormally light ride is stiff enough for riders wanting to hit up to the 70MPH mark. It features a 1/4” drop that is located between the truck holes to better help hold the rider in place while drifting, sliding and free riding. The smooth radial concave makes this board nice and comfortable and appropriate across the different disciplines of riding.
Powell Peralta longboards are a beauty not only to be marveled at but also enjoyed thoroughly. They are crafted using an industry leading extra light weight laminated core of of selected woods as well as multi axial fiberglass, and carbon fiber reinforcement. You will notice right away when you look at these premium decks that something is different about the tips. Those are the highly durable urethane bumpers. They are designed to protect against impacts, resulting in a longer lasting longboard.
This amazing technology is exclusive to Powell Peralta and is manufactured in the United States in the skate one factory under the watchful eyes of George Powell. They claim this Santa Barbara produced deck, is more light weight and durable than any other board available.
Its amazing how stiff these boards are torsionally given how light and thin they are. The ultra light weight gives the boards an added edge for quicker starts and faster response. Front and rear wheel wells create better clearance. Hard work and sweat is included in every board made.
