About The Shape
I’ve always loved Mike Vallely’s Elephant On The Edge board by World Industries back in 89-90. I was never able to get one though. My buddy Steve Dusek had one, and I would always try to ride his any chance he would give me. That board felt so good to me when I was 14.
When Mike reissued that board on Street Plant® a year or so ago, my childhood dream came true. That board has been in my mix of boards for a while now. I have a blast skating it! I then thought, wouldn’t it be great to have a board with my modern dimensions but with the look and feel of The Elephant On The Edge board?
So here it is. After working with Paul Schmitt and Mike, I’ve come up with my new pro model shape. It’s got all the dimensions of my Popsicle and Ninja shape but has the look, feel and vibe as The Elephant On The Edge. This also is my widest pro model yet, maxing out at 8.75 inches wide up at your front foot. It follows a nice curve back (perfected by Paul Schmitt) to 8.25 wide at the back truck. It’s important to me to have my common dimensions even on a bigger board with shape. That way you can still do all the modern street skating type stuff, without feeling like your riding a boat and you get to look down at a sweet shape! Really fun board!

Being a small, Family owned business it is very difficult for us to work around or absorb shipping costs. We are aware that many online retailers and even online Skate retailers offer "Free" or Flat Rate Shipping.
