Cabal Skimboards joined legendary skim shaper Eric Roush of Santa Cruz to release the Fire. I had the opportunity to ride one of the boards and was completely blown away. I own and ride the Cabal SX 46, and the FIRE adds a new performance to kite skimming.
I noticed an incredible improvement in going rail to rail and shove-its and skate manuevers on the FIRE seem easier than ever. The change in rocker and railshape make riding toeside and surfing and hacking even the smallest windswell feel like gliding on a 9ft longboard, but with the maneuverability of a performance shortboard. The constuction looks killer and uses a single high density PVC foam core and PVC rail inserts. The topsheet graphics are simple and look killer, and it even has grab rails for keeping the board in your hand during grabs and airial maneuvers!!!
Definitely an great board from Cabal. I'm so stoked on the board and can't wait to get one for myself!
Vive le skim!
