In your hood, road maintenance means filling in the potholes with garbage.
Drift turn after turn over teeth-chattering, low-quality pavement aboard the Mindstate Koa Longboard. More compact than some of Arbor’s other pins, this flexy deck devours rough roads with an energetic, almost bouncy feel. When you dip some weight into your front foot and let the Mindstate off its leash, the fiberglass-reinforced bamboo fires back with energetic carves. Not far from a soul-turning machine but not quite a dedicated carver, this deck hooks you with fun you’ll want again and again like a fix-seeking drug-fiend.
