This Sapling was built by Johnny H. here in our shop.
The Sapling is our very versatile mid-length fun-board, it’s a higher volume “egg” that's still responsive enough to maneuver from the lip and quick enough to carry you through fast sections. A great “short board” for larger riders or transitioning longboarders, or an all-around one board quiver!
The Sapling has a moderate rocker, maintaining paddle speed while having enough nose lift to stick steeper drops. The wide-point sits directly under the chest, concentrating the float under the rider when paddling, flowing back to the elegantly tapered tail, allowing the rider to initiate and complete fluid turns. A single-to-double concave bottom creates lift at speed, and channels water through the fins for speed out the back. 60/40 rails keep a good bit of volume for a stable platform, transitioning to tucked edge out the back for speed when you need it.
This board is located in our York Maine shop. Local pickup is available or contact us for a shipping quote. Don't want to wait? Buy the board now, we'll put your name on it, and we will reach out to discuss pick up or shipping options.Finished Board Specs
