With the evolution of skateparks and ramp skating, the skateboard began to change. Early skate tricks had consisted mainly of two-dimensional manoeuvres like riding on only two wheels (“wheelie” or “manual”), spinning only on the back wheels (a “pivot”), high jumping over a bar and landing on the board again, also known as a “hippie jump”, long jumping from one board to another, (often over small barrels or fearless teenagers), or slalom. Another popular trick was the Bertlemann slide, named after Larry Bertelemann’s surfing manoeuvres.

In 1976, skateboarding was transformed by the invention of the ollie by Alan “Ollie” Gelfand. It remained largely a unique Florida trick until the summer of 1978, when Gelfand made his first visit to California. Gelfand and his revolutionary maneuvers caught the attention of the West Coast skaters and the media where it began to spread worldwide. The ollie was adapted to flat ground by Rodney Mullen in 1982. Mullen also invented the “Magic Flip,” which was later renamed the kickflip, as well many other tricks including, the 360 kickflip, which is a 360 pop shove it and a kickflip in the same motion. The flat ground ollie allowed skateboarders to perform tricks in mid-air without any more equipment than the skateboard itself, it has formed the basis of many street skating tricks. A recent development in the world of trick skating is the 1080, which was first ever landed by Tom Schaar in 2012.

Specifications

The Revenge Alpha II is a single pivot 45° torsion truck made of 8DC12 recycle-based lead free aluminum. They are designed for carving, sidewalk surfing and for the pure thrill of turning.

They are mountable with standard hardware along with two options for hole patterns, old school and new school.

The bushing is made from the highest quality high impact polyurethane, made in the USA.

Performance carving, all dialed in.

The Derringer is our smallest all-around carving longboard. Owing to it’s surf roots the Derringer excels at generating powerful-carves at slow speeds turning flatland and small hills into rippable, enjoyable, runs. Your mini longboard can be more than just transportation, and it doesn’t have to be cheap plastic. The high end, high performance, bi-axial fiberglass, hot pressed into every Derringer, ignites a lively flex and power through the turns that the damp give of maple alone (or waffle molded plastic) just can’t match. If you love the idea of a small board, but demand big board carving performance, the Derringer stands alone.
