Rocket Longboards


ROCKET Longboards stands for downhill and freeride boards that correspond to the highest quality standards. All the boards are developed and hand made by Daniel Iseli in Switzerland. This development is supported by 12 years of experience in downhill longboarding. In a consistent exchange with active members of the longboard community, new ideas are tested and improved. Thanks to many years of experience in building high end longboards with glass and carbon fibers, the optimal symbiosis of different types of wood and the matching fibers arose. Therefore, ROCKET Longboards are lighter and have less torsion than comparable solid wooden boards.

The Rolling Tree Nimbus



Minneapolis, MN — August 4, 2014: Rolling Tree Skateboards is proud to announce the launch of The Nimbus, a classic asymmetrical double kick - reinvented. Designed by a global collective of artists and skateboarders, the Nimbus is the result of long hours spent bringing the perfect mixes of street and downhill disciplines into one deck. Whether bombing you’re your local runs or bustinʼ out a 360 flip in the parking lot - this board always feels solid.                         

The Nimbus features an asymmetrical 36” shape thats pressed on a symmetrical mold to ensure your concave will feel true no matter which way the board is pointing. Kicks rising out 15° from micro-dropped recesses and the 18” wheelbase create the perfect pitch for poppinʼ proper ollies. The 9.5” width stays consistent all the way up to the nose for predictable leverage throughout.

3D grab rails line the edges of the board to create the ideal grip for getting pitted over the coping of your local pool or performing flawless early grabs on the spot. Original graphics compliment the classic design, bringing a fresh homegrown look to The Nimbus. This product of global collaboration exemplifies the power of community design in a deck as clean as the lines it was designed to take.

A Promise Kept: Gravity Release of the Shane Hidalgo 36"


In May of 2012 we lost one of the most stylish, kind, humble & promising ride-it-all skaters.

Shane was, for lack of a better definition, a skaters skater. Stoke filled smoothness with both style and a smile you could easily see a block away.

Last month his pro-model was finally released from the crew at Gravity Skateboards in Oceanside, Ca.

I had the good fortune of spending several days with Shane camping at the infamous Toyland Ranch and covering slashing of California's Central Coast along with other notable attendees such as Dave Hackett, Guto Lamera, Chris Yandall (rip), Sergio & Fernando Yuppie and of course Jonny Miller, just to name a few.
