Retro Movement

Dan's Model

Noseriding it's what longboard is all about to me. Add the basics; a good bottom turn and a great pivot turn and magic happen, nothing compares to the glide on a heavy single fin longboard.
The momentum you'll get from it is just amazing, glide and turning becomes something so beautiful to watch.

I made the full circle on the surfboard design,I got back to the roots - TAKAYAMA.
with the simple lines, good old roll bottom so beautifully shaped with the tear drop concave carved on that roll and melting so well with the rail that becomes part of the deck.
everything just flows, every line, every detail match;
bottom, deck, rails, nose, tail, rocker line, the right volume on the right place.....

So now there's a new 9'4'' on the classic line up of noseriders, inspired this time on the takayama's NR2 that my friend Diego bought from Mitch Abshere last summer in Salinas.

This model will be glassed only using the traditional Volan cloth to add momentum, smoothness and beauty to your glide. It's one of the most classic boards in my quiver using the custom made US Blanks with my own specification to fill the needs of the traditional shapes.

The board have a roll bottom from nose to tail with the tear drop concave shape reaching the 68 inches from the nose. The rocker line was built to suit my personal style of longboarding - straight flat on the nose with plenty of tail rocker melting perfectly the bottom curves with the soft rails a bit up on the tail area.

This is not a board for those who wanna try a classic board just to see how it goes, this is an advance model for top longboarders only.
