Normally the thought of looking down the barrel of an inanimate object would scare the hell out of us, but not this time. We’ll gladly stare down the nose of the Sector 9 Tree Barrel Longboard as we surf sidewalks, connect quick turns at high speed, and cruise around town. At a mere 33.75 inches, the Tree Barrel is a relatively short longboard, just right for mixing up style from long to short turns and steep hills to boardwalks.
- Sector 9 Sidewinder trucks feature two pivot points (dual-kingpins) that allow you to actually ‘generate’ speed via your turns
- Flush mount drop through truck attachment style drops the board closer to the ground (due to the higher Sidewinder trucks) which offers you the best feel of the road
- Thick 8-ply maple deck is thicker than most boards to allow the unique drop-through truck attachment
- Wide, super-sticky Nineball slalom wheels provide unrivaled grip when you link fast turns
