"Gem" is a model created in collaboration with shaper Dan Man and three-time longboard world champion Taylor Jensen.
The reason why the concept of "Gem" was born was when Taylor asked Dan. "Is it possible to create an all-round model that would be an option for longboarders looking for both trim and turn?"
Taylor had in mind the high-performance TJ. A longboard that combines the characteristics of "TJ Everyday" that can be used for both "professional" and classic riding. Dan's answer to Taylor's inquisitive mind is to combine a longboard outline with a shortboard concave, and Taylor's favorite, unprecedented design to set the fin positions used on all models. rice field.
Despite being a single longboard, the two have called the board they developed a "gem" because of its high degree of perfection, which allows the rider to control carving using rails and trimming at the nose in the same way. I made it. It's no coincidence that this model has a "diamond" tail. It is an inevitable result sought by "Gem", which has jewel-like performance.
