The Shaggy’s Dropdeck is the ultimate in control for freeride longboarding. Its two bowl concave pockets in the dropdeck lock your feet into position and give you exceptional control and feel for the board. The camber between the pockets gives the board pop and a second arch to adjust your feet into.
We start with our ultra high quality American Great Lakes Maple veneers and cold press them one at a time into a dropdown blank. These boards can only be pressed one at a time to preserve their complex curves within the mold. The blank is then loaded onto our CNC machine to cutout the shape and drill the holes, this means that the shape is perfectly centered on the holes and there is no chance for kickback as happens with table routers. We then inspect and sand each board by hand. Lastly we seal the board with an ultra clear finish coating.
Our boards have a laminated plastic top and bottom sheet to repel water and protect the wood. The graphics are sublimated into the plastic so they look great even after a season of abuse, think of it as tattooing the plastic.
