Comet Air Frame Boards
2013 was a pretty sick year for longboarding. One of my favorite things about the sport is watching the newest innovations develop. Some flop, others are game changers. Comet Skateboards blew me away with their new patented air frame design. I mean its so simple, yet nobody else thought of it. For those not familiar with this, traditionally longboards are created using anywhere from 7-9 layers of sheets of wood also known as plys. These sheets are stacked, with layers of glue in between, put into a mold and shaped to the specific concave the manufacturer wants. Once the layers harden, the board is cut into the desired shape… add the finishing touches and presto. Comet turned this process on its head by adding multiple hollow torsion boxes. Similiar in theory to corrugated boxes, this unique manufacturing method resulted in a 25% decrease in the weight of Comet’s Air Frame Boards.
2014 Comet Skateboard Line-Up
From now until April Comet will be releasing something every month. Starting with the limited edition run of “Winds of Change Series”. There’s a limited run of these street decks so you can expect them to sell out quick! The Shred line will also be released towards the end of Feb (17). Shred series now comes in different colors in addition to having the shape updated.
In March both the Farmer & Wild Boar will be back in stock! We sold out of the Wild Boar in less than a month here, so we are definitely excited to get our hands on some more. Then theres the TMKF (This Machine Kills Fascists) Your guess is as good as mine on this board. Comet’s lips are sealed about any details. March will also mean the release of the 2014 Air-Frame Noah, as I mentioned above I’m in f*ckin aww over the air frame molds. The air-frame mold i’m most excited about trying is the 2014 VooDoo.
Lastly the popular Ethos Series will be released in April. Besides the bitchin new graphic Comet also updated the shape they come in and the molds used. I’m excited about the 2014 Comet line-up, be sure to check back as they are being released because we will have every single one in stock as they get released. Now if only spring would hurry up and get here!
