The Root Longboards family has grown by a new member and a new deck model.

After close cooperation with Peter Markgraf, Root Longboards presents The Moby Dick. Peter’s signature model is a freestyle board made from Bamboo / Ash Tree core, enhanced with fibreglass and carbon for an ultralight, yet robust construction.

My mission was to create a board that inherits both, the street skating and the longboarding style. Building a bridge in-between some of the most demanding expressions of skateboarding when it comes to wear and tear of your beloved gear.

The Moby Dick Root longboard deck comes in at 110 cm long and 23.50 cm wide, with a wheelbase option 65 – 70 cm. Making those trick possible are double 15° kicks, while the 2.5 mm micro drop and a 1.5 mm rocker provide grip and that extra needed pop to elevate your tricks.

The freestyle / dance / cruise board is available for 249 Euros via Root Longboards website.
