Earthwing Belly Racer Longboard
Wheel Base: 29, 29 3/8, 29 3/4"
Materials: 9ply maple
Earthwing was inspired by and very much identify with the speed racing pioneers from the early days. They raced cars that they designed, engineered, and built from the belly tanks of planes in the mid 20th century. Those cars were stripped down, dirty, and fast. If it didn't increase the speed, it didn't need to be on the car. Much like those rides, the Belly Racer has everything you need, nothing you don't. There are plenty of pretty skateboards with expensive graphics, like a perfect sunset on the beach, or complete custom graphics, custom grip tape, and all sorts of additional stuff. It's all good and interesting, and Earthwing loves seeing fancy skateboards, but this is not that. It was stripped down to the essentials. It's just a truly perfect design, with a perfect shape, and a perfect concave that works for racing. It has multiple mounting options for reverse kingpin trucks of all angles, and standard geometry trucks for those with the grapes to race them.
