- Arbor Axis Deck (Beautiful)
- Caliber Trucks 50 Degree (Great for Carving)
- Bones Reds Bearings (Wonderful speed, remember to wash)
- Dano's Downhill Wheels (Great for beginners but not recommended for sliding
I love it for cruising, but i've also taken it up to 35mph
I've used it for downhill with great results, but that's not what it's intended for
Don't add grip,
It comes pre gripped with lucid clear grip and the koa top sheet is beautiful.
This board is the perfect mix of flex and stiffness
I'm a heavier rider ~250 lbs and it still holds up to my weight
It's extremely versatile, and goes best with Paris 180's 50° trucks
I've had mine for 3.5 years now and have ridden it around 500 miles and it hasn't failed me once
The ONLY downside to this board, is there is no kick-tail! That's the only thing I would change about it. I watched videos and read descriptions and Arbor said it had a "functional" kick-tail, but most riders(including me) say it's questionable....
Im super impressed with this board and the set up i have fits me well. The recycled glass grip tape looks nice on the koa wood, and the graphic is pretty sweet too. I've already shredded a couple nice sized hills with this board, it's crazy stable and smooth, and i haven't got any sketchy speed wobbles at all. Not to mention, it's scary quite on fresh paved road.. It's all around a great board for anything you put it up to, no joke.

- Thank you for reading this, I took the time to write it because I didn't have much to read before i bought the board, so this is for you guys who really want detail about the board and personal experience from riding it.
setup i ride on this board:
-caliber 50 black outs
-rush ceramics (they are ok i prefer reds)
-sector 9 butterballs (with this board they are EXCELENT for sliding
Great board tho, i really reccomend it
The maple wood used for the board is extremely flexy, but even for a big man like me, 6'5" 240lb, there's enough stiffness to make it stand up even to the heaviest punishment. This is a surprisingly resilient board. The Axis's namesake is the symmetrical shape it has, meaning it can be ridden either direction equally. The board also has a really nice concave sort of feel that is very tactile and responsive.
Arbor uses a lot of recycled material for their board, so you can feel good buying a board that's environmentally conscious. I also stocked it with Arbor's Sucrose Initiative 72mm wheels which are the perfect match for this board.
I picked out some Caliber 50 trucks that are just a solid set of trucks to make every turn on the Axis feel way too smooth. Tack on some Bones Super Reds bearings and you'll be bombing crazy hills with huge amounts of speed.
The only negative thing I have to say is there is no kick tail, not exactly a negative of any sort since I realized that when I bought a drop-through, but still there are plenty if curbs I wish I could have just hopped with a kick tail. Something I definitely won't overlook on my next board.
Simply put, the Arbor Axis
It's a very good cruiser and you can get in some tight carves too.
With the caliber 50 trucks, they are pretty nice for some downhill because there isn't that much flex.
I also did some sliding on it but it's quite hard to me because I have 4presidents on it and they aren't really made for sliding.
The recycled glass grip looks very nice. Normal grip tape is just a bit better but I don't really care. The tail and the nose on this board aren't very useful because they're small so if you want to do tricks, like ollie or something, you better get another board.
Overall i thinks the board looks very nice
I recommend it to any beginner because it's easy to ride and you'll have a lot of fun.
- Arbor Axis koa 2013
- Orangatang 4presidents wheels (good for downhill and cruising+carving)
- Caliber 50 degrees trucks (bit heavy, i think Paris trucks are better)
- Zealous bearings (very good)

PEEL. STICK. ART.
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.
