Original Apex 40 Longboard Skateboard Deck - Rocker Concave



Quick Overview

The Apex 40 with rocker concave is a sweet freestyle and freeride machine!
Grip tape is applied to the top of the deck to provide the rider traction.
Used to keep the bolts on your board nice and tight and/or to assemble the board.
Lubricant and cleaning kits are used to keep the bearings in the wheels turning quickly and smoothly; if this is your first board, these upgrades are not necessary. Make sure you love to ride first!

How It Shreds:


The Original Apex 40 Rocker Concave longboard is a modern marvel in the world of freeriding. It is a really fun and really functional freeride board. It has a generous amount of flex with enough rigidity to hold big long slides out. Most boards with flex don’t hold their own well when you get up to higher speeds but surprisingly enough the Original Apex 40 does! If you are interested in solid freeriding with a little freestyle trickery here and there, then you will definitely enjoy the Original Apex 40 Rocker deck over many other options on the market. Original has a bajillion Facebook and Youtube fans for a reason; their boards are flat out fun to ride!


Recommended Components:


-Paris 180mm Trucks

-Orangatang 83a 70mm Stimulus Wheels

-Bones Reds Bearings

Please be advised that Original longboards frequently arrive directly from Original with scratches on them. Unfortunately, we have no way of preventing these scratches. Ordinarily, the number and depth of the scratches are FEWER than what a rider would expect after a typical first use.

i have ridden my mates apex 40 av rocker for about 30 minutes and i fell in love (av rocker, paris v1 180, tektons, floaters) i would pay anything for the comfort it provides is far superior to most if not all of the cheaper options well worth the money and will be ordering on once i can afford it and daddies has them in stock
nice. bit expensive. really durable. good for slides, carving, cruising, and some medium downhill
so. the board really isnt bad. right now I have gator grip onn top, randals, and liam morgan pro model wheels on bottom. It's not a bad set-up at all. the board is flexy( i can touch it to the ground if I jump really hard), durable( ive curbed it many times and flipped it over more than i can count.) the kick tails are not to bad. they would probably be better if I put it on the shorter wheelbase, and they can slide really good. (butterballs- 48ft slide) Nice overall.
An overpriced meh.
I am pleased with this board so far, the kicktails are very functional, its the perfect length, and the concave is okay. However, nothing about this board is amazing. The concave is okay, but nothing special, the construction is good, but ultimately doesn't help the board any. Just because it has fiberglass doesn't mean you should fork up $200 for the deck. For that amount you could afford two equal quality maple decks. I barely notice the flex, i am 5 11" and 125-130ibs. I recommend going for a less expensive board, a Bustin boombox, a Madrid koala, a honey chameleon, a Blue Sky Coruja to name a few. All cheaper boards that will serve you equally well. It looks very thin, but it is about the same weight as Dreggs Paradox, or generic pintail, or Bustin maestro. Ultimately, i enjoy this board but it is too expensive, and i wouldn't buy another.
