New Arbor Boards: It’s not the Vugenhausen…

Check out the Arbor Prodigy! I jacked this pic from James Kelly's facebook.

I don’t know how many of you guys warmed up to Arbor since they up’ed their downhill and freeride program but first thing I did was set up a Vugenhausen and go shreddin’ with it.  Obviously you can see that this new micro-dropped deck, called The Prodigy, has some striking resemblances with the Vugenhausen.  Also check out those pockets in the concave!  Very sharp angles and man do they look amazing!  They will no doubt be great for getting leverage in slides and cornering.

Heres what we know about The Prodigy so far. Get ready to get stoked!

  • It has 7 wooden plys and 4 fiberglass plys.
  • It is 38 inches long and 9.85 inches wide with a 30 inch wheelbase.

With the team that Arbor has (James Kelly, Kody Noble, Jimmy Riha) I personally find it kind of hard to hate on them.  I was mind blown the first time I rode the Vugenhausen and to this day it is still a happy family member in my quiver.  Also, I am not sure but that also looks like a new graphic for The Assault!  Get your cruise and carve on!

Alex Tongue and other Orangatang riders going big!

Check out Daddies Board Shop team rider Alex Tongue in Big Wheels and Longboards!  He joins fellow Orangatang riders, including the much loved Patrick Switzer and Maxim Garant Rouseau, in an awesome run down the Italian Alps.  Aside from some amazing longboarding its awesome to see those other guys going down and drifting and sliding around everywhere on those gnarly big wheel tricycles.  All of the Orangatang riders really seem to favor those 80a 4 Presidents and In Heats.  Im curious to see if Orangatang will be using their new Euphorethane, thats featured in the new Balut’s, and implementing it in their other wheels.  I would love to have a set of 4 Presidents that I could get a little more life out of!

UPDATE TIME SUCKAS!

PEEP THISSSS!!!!
