What We Think........

This is the board that introduced us to Jaseboards. Awesomely versatile, can handle quick turns or high speeds in a stable and non-squirrely ride. We compare this to a hybrid bike in that it can handle everything well. But much like we wouldn't recommend routinely taking a hybrid bike on steep rocky trails, this is not the model if you want to spend the bulk of your time in the skate park. 

The Kick is recommended for:
    • Cruising, FreeridingThe Streets, The Park 
    • Anyone in need of a versatile all around board that is equally adept in all environments
What They Say......... 

The mid 90′s traditional longboard design. A jack of all trades, good for cruising, a little bit of freeriding, skating parks and sidewalk surfing. the 7 inch long tail gives you ample room to put your foot on the back to pop it up and make sharper turns and the nose is just long enough to comfortably pull off nose manuals. As one of our most versatile boards it’s great for anyone from beginner to advanced. The Kick comes with Ceramic Bearings. 

The Details.......
    • Weather Resistant Deck due to the bamboo encasing that has a supportive flex.
    • Grip Tape is a blend of silicon carbide grit sizes to create an extremely coarse and grippy top to maintain footing

    • Base Plate is set at a 45 degree angle for a balance of maneuverability and stability.
