Zenit Freeride / Cruise / All around Skateboard
The Morning Wood V3 is the ol' reliable that will get the job done. More oriented toward cruising and transition, this super lightweight shredder can still fulfill all of your street slashing needs.
This three ply board has been engineered to be as lightweight as possible while staying in the sweet spot of stiffness. Reinforced by pre-tensioned triaxial fibreglass, it sticks to your feet in the air like it's magneticaly attached, and its deep concave acheives the same effect along the ground, functionally making it just as good at sliding as it is at aerial tricks. Plus with four wheelbase options, you can take your time and find that perfect wheelbase you've been craving.
A minimalist, lightweight construction of two plies of maple and one central ply of poplar keep the board extremely lightweight and snappy, and are made stronger and poppier by pre-tensioned triaxial fibreglass outer sheets. The whole is held together by bio sourced Greenpoxy. Big things come in small packages.
A comfortable radial concave will keep your feet locked in for whatever surface you choose to surf: hills, banks, quarterpipes, sidewalks, brick, marble, you name it. You can even rely on the Morning Wood's directional kicktails to help you move the board up down and around any obsacle that gets in your concrete wave.
Simplicity enthralls: complexity gets lost in the cacophony
The Morning Wood is an extremely versatile, fun board that can open up the diverse world of skateboarding for riders of all experience levels. For my money, there's no better short DK on the market today. It's great for cruising, tech sliding, street, freestyle, using in a bowl, even light freeriding. It's lightweight, easy to get sideways, durable, and above all, loads of fun!
This deck is amazing. You can throw RKPs on it for fun cruising and freeriding or use street trucks for tech sliding and freestyle. Depending on how I want to use it, I use G-Slides, Snakes, Morgans, Rainskates, or Fineen Fangs. The concave is strong without being too aggressive, comfy while still keeping me locked in. The wheelbase options are great, allowing me to use a wider setup that gives me a strong stance when I want to hold out longer slides or shorter options when I'm trying to focus on spins and faster slides.
The MW has just about perfected the marriage between traditional skateboarding and longboarding. It truly thrives as a cruiser, street deck, tech slide option, AND for use in a bowl. It's rare that a board is this capable while also being so light and sturdy. I can't speak highly enough of it, honestly. I never thought I've love tech sliding or slow-speed freeriding like this. It opened up a whole new world of skating for me.
