About the Pintail 46
Ousting the former big boy of the Original lineup, the Original Skateboards Pintail 46 comes in 2 inches longer then the Custom 44.
Designed on the classic Pintail shape and featuring art by acclaimed surf artist, Jay Alders, the 46 boosts big hill performance by combining the widest Original trucks and a stiff 9 ply deck for an uber-stable ride. The result is a longboard designed for the steepest hills or mellow flatland carves. Just make sure your ready when you step into the ring, the Pintail 46 goes in swinging.
How it Rides
It rides big and it rides powerful when you need it to step up and carry you through a tight squeeze. It lives a mellow life on the flats where it seconds as a dancer and beach cruiser. In the end, the Pintail 46 is a Jack of all trades, but truly excels when the big hills and steeps come calling.
The laser cut grip on the Pintail 46 is the icing on a multi-layer maple cake. With pin stripe and Jay Alders signature, bordered by this custom cut tape job, the Pintail 46s top finish is a tantalizing, tasteful, treat better than any completely competent confectionist could conceivably care to create.
Make The Drop
Big waves are steep, big banks are steep, and both require a board designed to handle the powerful riding that is needed to tame the drop. The Pintail 46 is the gun of thelongboard world, designed to paddle into that Eddie sized bank youve been dying to drop in on.
It might take a bit more initial effort to get it going, but once you find a groove, the Pintail 46 will roll around a bowl with the nimble agility of the small African Klipspringer. The alacrity of the Original S Series carving trucks will keep your flow going when other trucks might leave you stranded inside as the set waves come crashing down.
