Velocity boards are a new company out of NorCal with a long history of experience in the manufacturing end of things. As you've probably heard, their boards have a bit of a concave on the bottom which is supposed to help give the board a little lift, which is supposed to make it faster, and more maneuverable. Is it? From nearly all accounts (including Bill Bryan) this stick is fast as ****, buoyant, and turns on a dime. Lightweight, carbon epoxy construction, and it comes in pretty colors, too. If you're in the area, stop on in for a demo. If you're not, just buy one. It'll be good. Promise.
