In a world… where skaters are searching for the best, the strongest, the most bad-ass looking freestyle deck (pause for dramatic effect), TIMBER BOARDS will comply to the skaters’ demand. For millennia, the horde of bulls have made uncountable sacrifices to summon the final shape, the board that will end all wars. But FIRST: murder and mayhem.
El Toro will feature most prominently the subtle but noticeable mini drop right behind the bolts. A multi stage concave throughout gives you optimal control of all dimensions you want to throw this beast in. Whether it be kickflips or heelflips, ollies, or whatever trick you can conjure up in your limitless imagination; This deck will be predictable, strong, trustworthy and above all else: monstrous.
Microdrop will give you a greater grip at the stance and board control will be immense because it will catch your feet early. Without a drop, you might need to catch the higher fliptricks on the kick. Thanks to the drop you will have earlier and better control.
It has concave at the bolts of 0,25cm. This adds to the stiffness and overall toughness of the kicks.
In the middle the concave is 1cm. Enough to notice it, but not too much.
13-16 cm long kicks, depending on your chosen wheelbase.
This deck features kickplates, as we call them. It is an extra layer of bamboo sandwiched between the veneer and some glass. This will give you a stronger pop and longer lasting tails.
It is strong as a bull. If you want a less ‘out there’ description, here it is:
Because of the flowing and relatively substantial concave throughout the board in combination with the optimal combination of weaves of both glass- and carbonfiber this board is stiff. The inner tension because of the shapes gives it a whip-like effect when popping. A bullwhip? Yes. Which is what you want when jumping from stairs and landing those big tricks that will woo the audiences of many longboard competition. But if you just skate for fun, WHICH IS OKAY BY THE WAY, you want a board that will last and stays strong for as long as it can.
The fact is that the tensile strength of carbon is one of the strongest in the world. We do not shy away from adding this composite in this here board. All of our boards have reinforced kicks, so saying that this feature is special for El Toro would be a lie. But because of the total length, shape, length of the kicks, the drop, hell… the whole design, the reinforcement we put into this thing might just be a little overkill.
The inner wheelbase is 54.5 cm. Whereas the outer wheelbase is 60.5 cm. If you feel like this is not to your liking, it has ANOTHER ONE. It’s 57.5 cm.
This deck will feature a totally flat mount for your trucks. So this board will carve exactly the way you want it to.
Fast freestyle madness. Fliptricks will go flying. The pop is high and as strong as the day is long. No ramalamadingdong.
Made by the one and only Lance Schmale. To no ones surprise, it’s a bull.
