Eastside Longboards New DK Dropkick Out Now
Eastside Longboards out of Oregon have a new deck out, the DK Dropkick, and we’re stoked to see their progression of the drop through into an all around shred machine anyone can get down on. We got the details from boardsmith and ripper Robin McGuirk!
By popular request here is the DK DropKick. It is based off one of our oldest designs, the Carbon DropKick. We went all out creating what our fan’s wanted; a freerider’s dream board with drop-through mounting and double kicks. The mold we designed for this board has a very comfortable concave featuring rocker, foot flairs, and mellow “W”. The kick-tails are shaped wide enough to actually use them in a functional and confident way to drop off curbs and lift up the wheels at speed.
Double the pleasure with two kicks to leverage whatever tricks you can imagine! With the lowered platform created by the drop-through and rocker combo, this lightweight board is perfect for LDP as well. This makes it one it one of our most diverse designs able to do it all. We highly recommend it for the beginner rider or anyone seeking an agile yet stable freeride deck with really useful kicks.
