The board has a classic design that has a vibe of surf shapes. It has a truly comfy flex that can match the Original trucks in a perfect manner. The board is 40 inches long and 8.75 inches wide. It has a wheelbase of 28.5 inches. The board is fitted with 200mm 11″ longboard trucks and black tension springs.
The Pintail 40 was thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of a variety of longboard riding styles. Topping out at a modest 40 inches long, the Pintail 40 falls in the shorter end of the Pintail Series. The short length of the Original Longboard aids maneuverability, carving and pedestrian dodging. 40 inches is no small peanuts though and allows ample room for wider stances and stance adjustments whilst riding. The 7 ply Canadian maple construction of the Pintail 40 supplies the perfect flex for its wheel base. Suitable for all but the biggest riders, this boards flex is responsive, but not abrasive. Think honey bee, not nest of angry hornets.
