The Arbor Bamboo Axis is a blended wood and bamboo drop through cruiser. A symmetrical snowboard inspired waist and camber give you snappy rail-to-rail performance and the drop-through truck mounting gets you lower to the ground to power through turns and slides.

  • DBS Abec 7 Bearings

good beginner board
I've had this board now for about a year and i have changed a few things on it. The Lucid Grip that is used so that you can see the one bamboo ply is near worthless. It wore out quickly so I sanded off the rest and put some other griptape. The image on the bottom gets scratched and chipped super easily. After a week a small chip in the paint became a palm sized patch of missing artwork. I sanded this off as well and painted my own image on it. The description says flexy but it is barely for me; I weigh 130 lbs. I put on some Venom Super Carve Bushings (87a & 85a) and Buzzed Trucks Amish Flat Washers and it rides much better now. I love this board for cruising around but with such flat concave I haven't even bothered with trying to slide on it.
"Too Versatile"
First of all I only bought the deck, I don't know
This is my first longboard; it got me hooked. I still ride it and it's quite fun.
My issue with this board is that it "has a little bit of everything." This might sound like a good thing to you, but hear me out.
1. It has little to no concave and very poor grip - this means that it is not ideal for Free-riding and Downhill.
2. It has tails... sorta. Arbor says they are functional, but I disagree. - Not ideal for Freestyle
3. The board is really flexy (165 lb), but it is also a drop through so it looses some of it's carvey-ness. - Not ideal for Carving/Slalom (I hate topmounting drop through boards)
4. It is only 8.8 inches wide. - Not ideal for Freestyle/Freeriding/Downhill
5. It's really flexy. - Not ideal for Downhill

I know that all I have said so far are negative things, but I still enjoy riding this board just to cruise on.
I suggest you only buy this if you are 100% sure that you want and EXTREMELY versatile board. I would still go with the Axis GT though because I had to put grip tape on mine quickly after buying it because the grip adhesive wore off fast.
One good thing I do have to say about this deck is that since there is almost no concave and the deck is so flexible, it can feel like I'm just gliding on air, or sliding on ice sometimes. I say this because I have ridden downhill and freeride boards that lock my feet in too much and are super stiff so I feel like I'm riding a tank. With the Arbor Axis, I feel very free.
ive had theis board for a wile now. when i tried to slide on it my feet flew right off it. the grip gets dirty and loses its grip. the board had little to no concave. so overall i would recomend this board for crusing. but dont get me wrong this board is good. just not what a good slider is looking for.
Good all around board
I've had this board for several weeks now and I have to say It's really fun to ride. The board is stiffer than i would have preferred (120 lbs) almost no flex. Its great for sliding cruising and carving maybe a little downhill too. The nose and tail are exaggerated in the picture so they aren't much to work with with the baseplate in the so manuals and shoveits are more difficult but still do-able. It's quite similar to a dervish. It has medium concave and not much camber. The board might say its bamboo but only the top ply is, not a complaint, just a notification. I recommend paris 180s with 70mm or less size wheels. If you flip it upside down on pavement, the top will scratch easily and the grip tape doesn't last long either. So the verdict is I would recommend it but I wish I had payed the extra money for a tan tian.

This month, all orders over $19.95 get the newest sticker of the month. When robots take over the world, it will surely be more or less like when humans did: Some will be jerks, some will gather all the power, and some will just want to shred. Ted Cocuzza envisions a world where robots still have the freedom to throw a steezy layback grind on a DIY spot when they feel the need.

As always, every order will come with two free classic Daddies stickers at no cost. We know... we're sweet.
