Scoot’s New Board: The Sector 9 Tiffany!

Scoot Smith and The Sector 9 Tiffany

Finally, we have a good finished product shot of the new Sector 9 Tiffany, Scott “Scoot” Smith’s new pro-model longboard!  And look at that puppy, it is gorgeous.  It is pretty amazing to see a Downhill Division Deck with some green flavor to it!  This here is an interesting deck and I think that other companies out there are going to take bits and pieces of it in the future and apply them to their future models.

Lets look at the specs!

I think the most noticeable feature is the nose!  It isn’t a wedged nose, its a dropped nose! I think that after years of riding the Landyachtz Evo Scoot wanted something that felt somewhat similar when he switched over to Sector 9.  After speaking with him at Maryhill this is what Scoot told me about his new board and the function he wanted it to have.

Scoot said that he wanted to have the nose dropped a bit because it makes the board a bit more divey in the front. Obviously that would be great for diving into turns and for initiating slides.  And you get the best of both worlds because it is not going to be offsetting the angle of the kingpin much, if at all!  Imagine it this way, amazing control up front that mellows out in the back so that you can follow through in turns with no sacrifice in stability. A lot of boards have the ability to do this but I think the Tiffany is going to set a new standard in design.

Next, you can see in the picture above by the way the light reflects off of bottom of the board, there is a hefty amount of W-concave thrown into the Sector 9 Tiffany!  Essentially Scoot and Sector 9 have created one innovative downhill machine. AND to boot it has some burly wheel wells so say “bye-bye” to wheel bite with this guy!  Unless you run some Gullwing Sidewinders with 107mm Abec 11 Electric Flywheels… but that would be pretty stupid and I highly doubt anyone is going to do that, but props if you can pull it off.  Check out this video!

As you can see, this thing is basically perfection!  Plus it has that little swallow-tail thing going on and ever since the Comet Grease Shark came out the swallow-tail steez has been KILLING IT! Looks so sick.  This board paired up with Scoot’s flawless style is going to provide for some great racing and some series eye candy video content!  I can’t wait to see how Scoot man-handles TIFFANY!

Hood River/Bingen/The Dalles Skatepark trip!

Hood River Mini Shred With Colton Carnahan and the Pal Corral from Daddies Board Shop on Vimeo.

Here is a little video of us all burnt out on the last day of our trip! we had skated parks from basically early in the morning until late at night for 3 days and by this time we were exhausted! We posted up on the smallest feature at the hood river park and got some tricks in. Mainly colton slayed it and did a million and ten tricks on it that have probably never been done. It was a blast and a good way to end our trip.

We will have pictures of soon of everything that went down! Including us tossing out free product at the new Dalles oregon skatepark. props to everyone who came out and skated… it was a blast!
