DVS Skate Review


What the manufacturer says about the Skate:

‘The Q-Skate is a wide square tailed, pointed nose, high volume board with a quad fin set up. It has the signature DVS bottom of a single concave running into a double concave vee and the back half of the deck is concaved, so that your front foot is actually higher than you back foot. The carbon fiber stringer and the concave deck make for a lively tail which responds to your back foot pressure. It‘s ideal for generating speed in small waves.’
