The Story
The original Scoot deck has been revamped this year, with the greatest changes taken on this deck since its inception. How big, you ask? Not big at all. We designed this downhill board for Scott Hurdleston, originally, and feel like it has been one of the most epic shapes we’ve ever created–there’s not much fixing to be done! Actually we changed as little as possible, while satisfying the desires of our top rider, Chase Hiller, and combining that with our own shaping evolution. Chase and I have talked a lot about this deck over the years, and the very clear things he loves about it are the drops and the platform size. So we didn’t touch the platform size, and the drop work that we did on the deck really doesn’t affect the functionality of the deck, except that they are a little more pronounced than last year’s model, but the drops hide into the shape a little better.

Shape and Construction
The biggest change you’ll notice is that we’ve added a tail! This is hardly a requirement for a downhill longboard, but it is a great additional for fun! We are offering an 8 ply with carbon top and bottom for racers and excessive speed demons. The addition of carbon into the layup adds some durability, weatherproofing, and torsional rigidity ideal for downhill racing. We also made some very slight tweaks to the shape, but what you’ll notice most is slightly more pronounced curves in the drops and a slightly stronger W-concave. The W shape is modeled almost exactly off last year’s Sage/Sacrifice W-concave at its peak height, and then its egg-shaped profile thins out and becomes less significant toward the front. Last and certainly not least, we set this puppy up the way that Chase has been riding it, by flush cutting and shortening the wheelbase. Repeat: the platform size HAS NOT CHANGED, but the wheelbase has!

Technical Downhill Longboard with Purpose
The most notable thing about this deck is just how functional these curves are going to feel. The Scoot has every feature you could possibly want in a downhill longboard, if you’re a feature-lover. The concave is not basic at all, but it packs the features into the deck in a very ergonomic way. It almost feels like suction cups for your feet. It’s kinda ridiculous. You’re going to look at it and wonder who we sold our soul to in order to bend wood like this, and then you’re going to stand in it every chance you get and attack hills with more confidence than ever.
