Edina

 

our newest creation forged in our workshop by experienced shapers, the Edina is a mash up of our classic boards paired with plenty innovations, new layup and a well known shape the longboard world loves and keeps copying.

right in between our Platypus with 127cm and our Mini Platypus with 109cm the Edina meassures 118cm nose to tail.

 

Shape

Our classic asymmetrical shape which got shortened a bit around the waist to fit the length of the Edina.
Of course we kept all the good things like, no wheelbites, tailored waist, Platy-shaped nose, straight tail,.....

 

Concave 

Lots of it !

the radial concave on the Edina is perfect for flicking your flips and keeping you stable while throwing down some Peter-Pans or Cross-Steps.

It's noticeable throughout the whole board, starting right after the truck-wholes and mellowing out in the centre.

 

chopped Camber

we redeveloped our already successfull camber known from our Platypus to fit modern freestyle needs.

the result is a very controllable board that supports you during landings and encourages your dancing with the extra shot of energy know from classic camber boards. 

With our newly developed chopped camber even pumping is possible, although you would never suggest it after looking at it.

 

Construction Method/Layup

we changed out the 3layer birch-ply for another 1 layer sheet of bamboo, making it our first full bamboo board, which we reinforce with different kinds of glassfibre and carbon fibre, so the kicks stay stiff while the subtle flex can do it's work in between the wheelbase. 

 

Kicks

When it comes to the kicks we recalculated the apex point and stuffed in even more reinforcement material to make the pop really fast and snappy. Our new layup ensures stiffer kicks and longer lasting pop, which makes it perfect for high popped tricks. 

Due to the new fibres used, you can stomp your flips without worrying about the durability of the board underneath your feet.
