Really interested in the board but can you please get it in stock ASAP
amazing for freeride
pockets make you feel safe and really lock you in during slides, very durable board, you can also do freestyle on this but its a bit more difficult due to length and weight of the board, i definitely recommend it for freeride

Amazing deck
This board locks you in like a dream. You have complete control while riding the diamond drop. You can go anywhere with this deck and bust out any slide. This is a great board for any experience or ride style. This board is durable, and overall flawless.
first theres a skateboard then theres a longboard then theres a great longboard and then theres the diamond drop. flawless in soo maany ways, this board personally made me change the way i think of longboarding today. ive had this board for almost 2 months and already could hold a 15 feet slide on a hill that the highest speed u can catch is 15 mph, good job Original
Best board on the market.
I've ridden the DD for a few months now and needless to say, I love this board!!!! It does "slide like a dream"! It also has the stability to take steeper hills and maintain balance and control without wobbles. It's dropped deck allows for a lower center of gravity which helps keep you more stable as well as to make it easier to push. Overall it's the best board I've ridden.
slides like a dream
fthe DiamondDrop slides like a dream and keeps you safely locked in. Ride with confidence, pursue steeper hills and longer slides. A full drop further steps up the Apex’s freeride and sliding game to create a clutch, symmetrical, double-kick deck that’s in tune with whatever you want to do with it. Beautifully thin, ultra durable and oh-so-low, the DiamondDrop holds it’s own as a commuter but still sports one of our favorite slide pockets ever. Perfect on so many levels.
