31" Wheelbase Deck
Other Planet Skate has dedicated many hours of testing to develop the best deck design to optimize the performance of our Revolution trucks. The 3-D bowl shape and deep wheel cutouts allow extreme deck tip without wheel bite and is configured for maximum grip in high g-force turns while also providing comfort at low speeds.
Our custom decks are manufactured from 9-plys of American grown hard maple veneer (Acer Saccharum), the preferred species for skateboards because of its hardness and resistance to shock among other reasons. They are manufactured for Other Planet by Churchill Manufacturing in southern California. Churchill is a leading US deck manufacturer known for producing the very best quality maple decks using their proprietary Vario™ glues, resins and UV cure processes.
The decks are designed to be rigid and provide an optimized strength to weight ratio. By eliminating flex and making the decks rigid we are able to optimize longboard setups for the type of performance desired. Just as a race car requires a rigid frame so that the tires and suspension can be tuned for track properties and current conditions, a rigid deck allows wheel selection for consistent and predictable performance for the pavement type, weather condition and temperature of your ride session.
Other Planet has partnered with Daniel from Dunkees to create our custom deck artwork. Daniel has been creating outstanding original deck designs for years. To see more of Daniel’s work, visit militonian.com. NOTE that your deack art selection will be provided on an "as available" basis. One of the other designs may be substituted if your selection is out of stock.
Our standard deck has a 5° up angle on the front and is flat on the rear. With this deck design your completed board can be configured for different types of riding (Downhill, freeride, etc.). We also offer a symmetrical deck with a 5° up angle on the front and the rear.
The wheelbase, the distance between the front and rear axle, of a skateboard helps determine the turning radius of your complete board. The shorter the wheel base the tighter the board will turn. Longer wheelbases do not turn as tight as shorter ones but add stability. This listing is for a 31” long wheelbase deck and is available with or without a kick tail. Add about 4” to get total board length. A kick tail adds an additional 3”.
