A perfectly scaled-down version of the Fortune - tons of concave but a narrower cut for those that have smaller feet or like a skinny board
Designed by Patrick Switzer, the misfortune is a directional, top mounted speed board like no other. Combining a bit of slalom, pool and downhill, with radial concave, a small spoon tail and an upturned nose added to the directional Vandal shape. You can ollie, manual and generally ride one board for whatever. 4D cups are supportive waves that grab your feet and hold them in place while you are mobbing downhill. Finally bit of genius is the Fat Bottom construction, released first on the 2012 Avenger, it keeps the board stiff and strong, but dropping excess weight and reducing exposed wood by making CNC’ed wheel wells obsolete.
The 4D Cups on this board works like this:
Integrated Wheelwells: subtle, pressed in curves in the front and rear open up the new radial concave to naturally allow for more diverse wheel options, while allowing the rider to find their feet without looking and prevent wheelbite without cutting into the deck.
Integrated Foot Locks: molded into the Wheelwells, the three dimensional waves create natural ridges to dig your foot into for tucking, pushing out drifts and slides and generally keeping your eyes and mind on the road ahead and not the board beneath you.
Wheel Base - 22.5" / 24.75"
Spoon Tail: Everyone loves a little tail!
Sharp Edges: Final touch for locked in feet.
Fat Bottom Bamboo Core: Strong and light, thick and juicy, this baby's got back.
Pre-tensioned Triaxial fibreglass: Adds long life, durability, strength and energy return.
Sublimated Artwork: Scratch-resistant ink is tattooed into the deck.
Speed-stiff: Don’t get bounced! Stiff boards will make you stable at high speeds.
Directional Shape: Gives extra edge feel for carving, cruising and speed.
4D Cup Wheel Wells – Take your skating to the 4th dimension with double locks pressed into each wheel well.
Radial Concave - Just like taking corners, one smooth line from edge to edge keep your feet right where you want them.
Universal Variable Top Mounting - Lets you pick the wheelbase that works best for you.
Bee Orange Finish - Smells good, taste great, and seals and protects your board without harmful chemicals.
