Five years ago we set out on an exploration to improve the strength and performance of skateboard decks and to see what was possible. FLIGHT™ decks apply what we learned into making a superior deck with increased performance at an affordable price.

Built in a new production area in our Santa Barbara, California, facility, FLIGHT™ decks are stronger, thinner and lighter than a 7-ply. You'll get the feel of it in an hour or two and begin to realize you can do things riding a Flight deck that cannot be done on a 7-ply. Flight decks allow you to extend your limits, because they let you ollie higher, flip faster, do tricks more easily, and they don't break in two like a 7-ply.

FLIGHT™ decks are:

  • Thinner - as thin as your phone
  • Stronger - more than twice as strong in our tail break tests
  • Longer lasting - The epoxy infused, fiber reinforced structure of the Flight deck is extremely resistant to breaking, and this structure gives Flight decks "everlasting pop" that doesn't fade as your Flight deck slowly wears.
  • Ollies higher because of greater rebound and snap.

Team testing suggests that Flight decks will last several times as long as a 7-ply, making them a great value as well as a superior performing skateboard.

Super Great Review by Nick
The deck is great and I can now finally stop worrying about cracking my deck by not landing bolts. This deck slides a little bit harder than regular ones. But some wax will do the trick and once you pass the paint layer it becomes easier. (Posted on 11/8/2017)
Superb Review by Frank
This deck is amazing. It has extremely high pop and it is very durable. (Posted on 11/3/2017)
Great deck Review by Jonathan
Will be buying these from now on (Posted on 10/7/2017)
Awesome Review by Garry C
Like the reviews do say: this board is golden. Depending on how long it will last, I'll probably never change decks again. One thing though that bothers me quite a bit: it is pretty hard to get the bolts flush with the griptape. The top carbon layer is super tough and I broke 3 bolts trying to screw them in the deck. You should provide predrilled holes so the bolts do sink in and the board will be perfect! Thanks! Awesome stuff! (Posted on 9/19/2017)
They're a real game changer for me Review by Tony Massicotte
Hey guys, I just wanted to tell you that your flight decks are the sickest. I though they were too good to be true until I ordered one for myself. They're a real game changer for me. I'm super hyped on your new pro models and I look forward to ordering one. I think I'll only be skating flight decks from now on. (Posted on 8/28/2017)
Unbelievable Review by Jelle
After almost one year skating this deck there is still plenty of pop. And the point of unbreakable is true. I miss landed my board once and thought it was snapped. But no, there wasn't a single crack. This is the best deck I've ever skated! (Posted on 8/9/2017)
Great surprise Review by Skater_dad
The "pop" in this board is unreal! I've been skating for 28 years now & have always generally skated only Powell-Peralta decks because they have with stood more abuse & held their "pop" longer than other decks from other companies.
But the pop, response & feel of these flight decks are just amazing!!
GET 1 & see yourself!! (Posted on 4/13/2017)
