Alternative Longboards x Zodiac
We are born with a sign. Stars overlooking our lives form maps, guiding us through voyages of lifetime. Each of us has its own emblem, proudly representing position of the Sun throughout the year.Since the ancient times it is believed each zodiac depicts our behaviourand having deep knowledge of the stars could forsee what is yet to come. And to this day they leave a special marking on our characters. But years ago who understood the planets, ruled the civilisations. On a dark night with clear sky we can admire the very same view our ancestors once did, and connect with the same paths our zodiacs travel for us each day.
May your plans and people you meet always be in favour of what you are looking for.
Because everyone is born under a lucky star.
For centuries bowman was considered as the most important unit in the army. Its focus, skills and fate held in hands to this day represent the deep attributes of Sagittarius. It combines the knowledge of man, and the will and power of a horse. With a powerful bow, it’s quite a resposibility. We know you are eager to fight for balance and strive for perfection. No fire or adversity is an obstacle for you. You stand for what you believe and we support that. Gallop towards discomfort, as only explorers of the unknown remain immortal.

By combining a light, springy core with surrounding hardwood laminates, fiberglass and a layer of carbon fiber, the Fantail offers a lively and vibration damping ride. The specially developed sandwich construction creates a thicker center base that runs through the whole length of the board and slightly narrows on the front and back edges for bigger wheel wells. In order to keep you skating longer, the Fantail’s durable construction was further reinforced with strategically placed protection of ABS sidewalls surrounding the wheel wells and the board’s ends. Not only does this enhance the durability, but also protect the edges in situations when you can’t stop the board from flipping over.
SHAPE & PROFILE
The Fantail is a 90 cm (35.43 inches) directional longboard with a top-mount truck mounting for better maneuverability and board control when riding. With a slightly wider front and tapered tail, it promotes smooth turning entry and exits and improved stability at higher speeds. It’s 24.5 cm (9.65 inches) width provides a big enough platform for a stable and comfortable foot placement no matter your shoe size. Paired with a comfortable concave and rocker, the Fantail enables you to safely carve and effortlessly perform edge-to-edge transitions for quick heelside and toeside slides.
The Fantail is a downhill and freeride longboard deck with a stiff flex that was designed for all skill levels. You can skate it at your local slide spot, on newly found mountain runs, longboarding events or cruise your streets and take advantage of its high kicktail with a massive pop. Whether you’re a beginner or pro, having the right board under your feet really matters, so have a closer look at the Fantail and get yourself the best gear for your needs.
