Bamboo is best! You can cruise this 40” Kicktail 'til the sun comes down. The 100% Bamboo deck gives this board a nice and comfortable flex sensation. Although the main purpose of this Bamboo board is to cruise, do not underestimate it. This board is constructed to have a nice solid tail for manueling, among any other tricks you may have up your sleeve. The top of the deck has an authentic Bamboo graphic to enhance its Hawaiian heritage. We use roll sandstick grip on the top so the board will stay nice and clean.
