The public vans board is a modern take on a midwide park board. Whether you’ve got a bigger foot and need a little more board to prevent toe and heel drag or you’re the type of person that likes to ride an 8.5” wide skateboard in the streets for added stability, this is the board for you. Softer torsional flex and a slightly longer blend zone at the contact point makes this board quick and easy to get on edge even with the slightly wider waist. This board features four 20mm wide quad carbon strips in the tip and tail for a serious boost in pop, a popular wood core for a smooth consistent flex, a sintered base to make getting speed in the park or streets no problem at all, and urethane sidewalls for superior durability and damping. The public vans board has a medium flex and profile that is camber underfoot and flat out to the contact point that gives the perfect balance of playfulness and stability while hitting jumps or rails.
