The Joe is our widest dancing board. Its spacious platform is most suitable for those with well
endowed feet, or simply those who prefer their board to be big and boaty. Smaller riders, fear not!
The Joe is designed to provide ample walking room, meaning this could also be a great dancing
focused board to learn how to step one foot over the other! Steezy, baby!
We recommend adding a ply if you weigh more than 260 lbs.
Bio sourced Greenpoxy laminates four plies of Hard Rock Canadian Maple around a central Poplar ply for reduced weight and increased pop. We sandwich the core between two sheets of pre-tensioned triaxial fibreglass which are embellished with the board’s alluring colours and animated graphic.
The pre tensioned and pre-tesioned triaxial fibreglass supplies some playful flex patterns that keep the board consistent throughout. Gentle kicktails on all the 2021 dancers facilitate popping the board so you don't have to comply with gravity. Most importantly, the composite material keeps the board crisp, snappy, and durable, without sacrificing any of the wood’s natural flexibility.
Simplicity enthralls; complexity gets lost in the cacophony.
The board itself is beautiful, but the trucks/wheels have malfunctioned on me in the first week (blew a wheel just riding normally). The board itself is quite a bit heavier than I expected, especially compared to other longboards I have ridden.
Hey Ronald, I'm sorry about the blowout! Why don't you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with pictures and we'll figure out a way to make it up to you.
The Joe is a heavier board, but it is also 9.75' wide, so there's a lot of wood to it. You'll get used to it, though!
Joe 2.0 All-Around
I love the Joe 2.0, the larger deck size makes Peter pan's easy. It is such a fun board and the fact it is made in Canada is awesome.
So I initially ordered the Joe when the color change option was still unavailable. I wasn't really feeling the yellow color but decided to order anyways because I liked the really liked the shape of the board. Then literally the a few days later I get an email saying that the color change option is back. I message them on their chat on the website and got a response within 10 min. They were able to cancel my original order and send a refund right away, and I was able to reorder my turquoise Joe. 10/10 customer service!
Man this board is a boat compared to my other longboards and I love it. Especially since have size 12 feet. There's more than enough room to position my feet while I'm learning to dance. The board is solid too. I weigh about 200lbs and there is surprisingly no flex at all given how long the board is. All in all, love the Joe, love Zenit, would order from again in the future.
Simply put, this board is great. I just recently built a custom board, but the wood ended up splitting after a few months of tricks. I had my eyes on the purple dino Zenit board for months, I went online and instantly when I saw the "Joe", the yellow long/wide board, I knew I wanted it. I watched the Zenit video describing the subtle differences between each board and I too learnt my first successful Peter pan on this board. You have a lot of room and it's very comfortable. My roommate just bought their tango board but has yet to try it out. It's also worth mentioning I'm in Montreal and longboarders always recognize a Zenit board. 5/5 would recommend. -Kaz
