Earthwing Supermodel Now at Alpine

Alpine is proud to offer Earthwing skateboards to the mix. Here is the always popular Supermodel. The dark purple is 8 ply and 38". Next lighter purple is 40" and 8 ply. The black model is 40" as well, but made of 9 plys of rock hard maple. This is a great shape and super fun to cruise on. 
Here's what earthwing says... 

"This deck is rad. We have tested several prototypes, and finally we landed what we think is the best DH freestyle deck available. There is a deep elliptical concave that is deeper near the trucks. It's on one plane, no rocker, no camber. It comes in 2 flexes - stiff 8 ply, and stiffer 9 ply, with hand picked Great Lakes region hard rock maple. No, maple is not all the same, and we have the best of the best. We paid close attention to the details. There is maximum possible real estate near the trucks without wheelbite. There are routered channels for a touch of torsional flex without sacrificing the stiffer feel of the deck. This will allow the load to be evenly distributed between all 4 wheels in slides for a more predictable ride. You can also grab rail, even with bulky slide gloves.
These glow in the dark - ha!"
