Free Love in Skateboard Form
Love may be a strong word, but it’s the first one that comes to mind when thinking about the flex of the Pintail 40. Mellow, forgiving, responsive, and perfect were other options, but we usually go with our gut instinct at times like these.
Elegance, meet Functionality.
The simple shape of the Pintail 40 is complemented by a gentle concave that furnishes smooth lines appealing to even the most discerning eye. Pure beauty can be deceiving as the concave is as functional at keeping your feet planted, as the lines are at soothing your ocular woes.
Tip or Tail
The Pintail 40 has enough overhang in the nose and a long enough tail to tackle most riding conditions. The 40 shines when you need to switch from commuting, to pick-in-uppin’ without missing a beat. It’s a solid shot of confidence to know that no matter what bogies are on your six, the Pintail 40 never, ever, leaves his wingman.
Cruising or Carving
The Pintail 40 comes standard with the Original S8, 200mm, carving trucks. Mid-size standard trucks means more stability while maintaining the versatility for pedestrian dodging all day long. If you plan on taking on the bigger drops, an upgrade to Original’s S10, 250mm, trucks is the best bet.

What’s Your Favorite Dish?
This cruising, carver comes standard with 70mm wheels, but if your taste is for more, you won’t go hungry. With dished out wheel wells, the Pintail 40 can accept a veritable feast of upgrade wheels to satiate even the largest of appetites.
North, North East
Whether you’re enjoying a cruise along the beach, or attacking a bomber run down the local steeps, having smooth bearings is key. With a number of quality choices, you can match your riding style to a set of performance longboard bearings suited to your needs.
The laser cut grip on the Pintail 40 is the icing on a multi-layer maple cake. With pin stripe and Jay Alders’ signature, bordered by this custom cut tape job, the Pintail 40’s top finish is a tantalizing, tasteful, treat better than any completely competent confectionist could conceivably care to create.
