Designed for Flex
Carbon fiber is a material with unique properties. depending on its layer thickness, resin system, and formed shape, it can be stiffer than titanium, or more flexible than bamboo. Carbon fiber strikes a balance between durability, lightness, and flexibility that other materials cannot match. The shapes that we cut from the deck are a form that follows function. The tail of the Scorpio Carbon Complete will deform by a couple on inches, loading up like a spring in turns, and then releasing in a slide, or driving you out with more speed.
High Quality Stone Ground Wheels
Stone ground surfaces are pre-broken in, which makes breaking into slides right out of the box easier. Power sliding is the on land equivalent of blowing your fins loose like you would on a surfboard. Controlling that action on land is sure to translate into greater familiarity in the water.
I'm a beginner to skating & surfing - bought the scorpio after getting some surf lessons back in the summer and enjoying the waves I managed to catch.
Progress was pretty rapid despite a slow and uncertain start. After a few days' practice I'm able to pump up mild gradients and do some full loops without pushing in my local skatepark.
The board is a lot more capable than me, it can do very tight turns and it feels more stable than I thought it would when pumping or drifting down a gradient. It's mechanically smooth with no squeaks. The big wheels roll over small debris easily without stalling.
Overall really happy so far, looking forward to getting more confident.
I've been playing Scorpio for over 5 months, it's very effective.
Smooth, Stunning and durable
