For the past five years OPD (Original Poop Decks) Skateboards has been working away developing new concept longboards and now has the production capabilities to produce boards to the general market. OPD offers many different types of longboards and short decks. I have been privileged to test the new OPD Downhill deck coined “The Steamer” and at speeds of 25-45 miles per hour this deck out performs anything else out there. It handles tight corners incredibly at high speeds and pushes in flats with minimal effort and resistance. The deck will premiere at “Blaze the Belt 2010” on July 30th and 31st in Leadville, CO. The “Original” OPD longboard has also been in my quiver and will perform to industry standards competing with Arbor, Sector 9, Gravity, and Bustin Boards. They are developing “The Warning Shot” which is a flex deck with a blunt kick tail and tapered kick nose; This deck will compete with the loaded boards “Tan Tien” and is on the cutting edge of the freeriding discipline of longboarding. The Campus cruiser is a smaller deck designed to perform under most commuting conditions and is perfect for toting into class and work. There are girls models of these boards as well as every board can be customized to fit the individual needs of the rider. Custom graphics also available for a small extra charge, OPD privides true original longboards and takes pride in every board that is still rolling after 5 years of testing.
