Please Read: No Original Apex deck is the same. Unlike a lot of longboards in the market, each Original Apex deck is individually pressed, hand made, one at a time. Like fingerprints and snowflakes, each board has its own identity. Apex Technology employs our custom carbon fiber/fiberglass technology which has some level of texture or “grain” as we call it. The amount of grain in these boards is directly related to this type of board- more complex concave decks require greater pressure and strain to create- and as a result those boards generally show more “grain” when finished. Rest assured that the board you receive is 100% durable, 100% reliable and 100% Original.
Change the way you ride. From freestyle to freeride, cruising/carving, and light downhill, the new Apex 40 DiamondDrop pushes the possibilities the moment your feet hit dat drop.

Beginner-to-advanced, the only thing the Apex DiamondDrop is missing is YOU.
Whether you’re a beginner learning to ride or just want to cruise / carve, the possibilities are endless.
