"If you want a versatile freestyle dancer, look no further. Well, you can look elsewhere, but you will come back to this board anyways!"

“Oh no they changed the Tortuga”. shhhhht. No we didn’t. It’s the same in every way except for the graphic and the color of the middle bamboo layer. I’m sorry for being this blunt, but we just copied the formed description because it described the board the best. Couldn’t do it better now if I tried:

If you want a versatile freestyle dancer, look no further. Well, you can look elsewhere, but you will come back to this board anyways. Even we are surprised by the balance of this board. Somehow it all fits. The multiple wheelbase options gives this board so many different characters. A wide set-up gives it more dampened flex for that smooth dancing and high pop, while the short wheelbase gives it a more responsive flex and big kicks. The concave is mellow and turns upward at the stance. This gives the flex a very unique feeling and a very comfortable stance. Throw in three different flex options and you can always find the Tortuga that fits your style. We could go on and on about the characteristics of this board. So we will.

The extra strip of bamboo fitted under the kicks makes the board last longer, but also gives it a nice pop, regardless of which wheelbase you choose. The waist is not to wide, making it lighter but also it affects the flex ever so slightly. We tried a lot of different shapes to finally arrive at this one. Oh yeah, and it has two stage kicks, so you can easily feel where to place your feet.

Closer to the bolts for one footed tricks you will find that the concave is still there. This concave allows for a better grip while doing tricks like blunt slides, g-turns, you name it. Further away from the bolts and you’ll notice the kicks curve upwards a bit more. This two-stage curve gives a lot of control during manuals. Combine all this with three different weaves of glass fiber and carbon in the kicks, and you’ve got yourself the most balanced, durable and surprising trick dancer on the market. If we may say so ourselves.

Flex Options

Flex - The Tortuga flex is the most flexible of the lot. Best suited for riders between 30 and 65kg. If you are 70kg this board will have lots of flex.

Medium - The medium Tortuga is best suited for riders between 50 and 80kg. If you are 50kg, the board will have a stiff and solid feel.

Stiff - With an added layer of carbon fiber, the stiff Tortuga is able to withstand a lot more force from that pesky little thing called gravity. The stiff option is best suited for skaters between 70kg and 100kg.


Tim gave his first shot at editing and this is what he came up with. Some random clips he still had of skating a proto of the very soon to be released Timber Tortuga! Available for pre-order now.
