Nick Ketner is a big board, janky transition, Colorado skatepark master and has definitely earned a board for himself this year. Nick wanted something just under the 35" size to suit his big board in the park style. He created this double shovel nose and tail deck out of that need. He went back and forth for hours and hours, until hours added up to days and days, with Jason on the shape via text message like a post modern surfer to surfboard shaper. There was a lot of fun had in shaping this board .. but not as much fun as ripping up your favorite park on the NK34!
Completes include caliber 169 mm trucks, Volante wheels, bearings, hardware, & grip.

First let's fill in a few blanks. Nose-6" Tail 6.5" the board width behind the back truck is 8.75" behind the front truck is 9.5" this info is vital if you are online shopping as I was. I ordered this after seeing some skaters riding Comets in the new Baltimore pool in the winter of 2014. Concave is deeper than I usually like but it works great. The shape is tops! especially the tail-a rounded square that feels great under my size 12 Vans. I have it set up with Ace 55s and 62mm Powell SPFs. The wheel wells are ligned up properly and allowed me to reduce riser pad height- always a good thing! This is the first time I have bought a deck online and it is the most I have ever paid; but it is worth every penny. I would recommend listing nose and tail length in your product description though. Great communication and fast shipping. I might have to order another just to stash for the future. Oh and props for the Made In Mexico label- ¡Viva La Raza!
