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.

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
