In the realm of our popular TAO skate, the SHIFT brings durability and our lively Hybrid Tech, but offers a slightly different outline for those preferring an Asymmetrical style. Aaron Reed and our newest star Andrew Fortenberry prefer the switch stability provided by the Asymmetrical Outline and chose to go sans Grind Base with their boards to make them a bit smoother when riding up the wake. The SHIFT was designed to be a bit more boat friendly than the TAO, but don’t let that fool you, as it’s still a Hybrid with Liquid Rail Sidewalls. Strong enough for those days at the park or winching the ledge, yet smooth as butter behind the tow vehicle, the SHIFT is our most versatile high end skate!

Rider level: Intermediate to Advanced
Composition: Wood/Composite/Foam/Liquid Rail
Deck Surface: Die Cut Jessup grip tape
Rocker Type: Progressive 3-Stage
Fin Set up: (2) 1.2 Obscura fins standard

Progressive 3 Stage Rocker
Aggressive 3 stage rocker combined with a continuous rocker. This rocker profile allows the board to stay under your feet as you edge or leave the wake.

Single concave
The Progressive 3 Stage rocker is complimented with a single concave throughout the board that helps the board track even truer, with a fin or without, when you are on edge

Wood/Hybrid Construction
Precision CNC cut 100% wood core and Liquid Rail perimeters that are completely sealed.

Variable Rail Edge
The rail of the board is softer in the middle and as it gets closer to the tip it becomes crisp. This allows for a board that is forgiving when on edge, but tracks when placed on edge.

1.125 Obscura Fin
Comes standard with two Obscura fins. These fins are dialed in perfectly for this board, to help track when on edge, but it is also the perfect height to release on tricks.

Gripped Deck
Deck comes with applied die cut grip tape.
