The Big Z is our noserider longboard model. Designed with help from Steve O'Donnell and with feedback from Declan Wyton and Lawrence Harkness, the Big Z embodies a deep dive into Australian longboarding history and culture because we want you to hang 10 out there. The optimal design characteristics of noserider longboards have been well decoded over the previous decades. Our interpretation is similar with a progressive approach and by taking the material factors into consideration.
The Big Z showcases a slightly wider tail than your standard longboard allowing you to spend more time up near the nose. The front has a teardrop shaped concave providing lift when noseriding, this leads into a belly and then finally a V near the tail helping you teeterboard the nose when turning. These boards are of equivalent weights to foam core surfboards allowing them to glide over the water and kickstart a paddle easily.
Like all our models the Eggplant features a Gore-Tex vented leash plug allowing the board to breath when temperatures and pressures get a bit dicy.
Because we're still growing, please allow 2 months for us to get your board to you.
