Please Read: No Original Apex deck is the same. Unlike a lot of longboards in the market, each Original Apex deck is individually pressed, hand made, one at a time. Like fingerprints and snowflakes, each board has its own identity. Apex Technology employs our custom carbon fiber/fiberglass technology which has some level of texture or “grain” as we call it. The amount of grain in these boards is directly related to this type of board- more complex concave decks require greater pressure and strain to create- and as a result those boards generally show more “grain” when finished. Rest assured that the board you receive is 100% durable, 100% reliable and 100% Original.

Want. Need. Slide.

Change the way you ride. From freestyle to freeride, cruising/carving, and light downhill, the new Apex 40 DiamondDrop pushes the possibilities the moment your feet hit dat drop. With a new wider standing platform, more concave, added wheel wells, + deleted gas pedals, the reinvented Apex is your upgraded go-to.

Its All YOU

Add your own customized touch. Upgrade to Cell Prime Bearings and a wheel of your choice!

All YOUR Riding Needs.

The Apex 40 Diamond Drop V2 longboard’s specialty is freestyle and freeride, but that comfy drop keeps you low to the ground for campus cruising & the occasional downhill bomb. Beginner to advanced, the Apex 40 Diamond Drop has you covered.

Learning to Ride + Cruising/Carving

Whether you’re a beginner learning to ride or a seasoned vet, the possibilities are endless with Apex 40 DD. The deck’s drop standing platform & compatibility with Original trucks lets you make sharp turns, coast further, push with ease, & maintain a tight turning radius for smooth carves.

Pocket Change

Dip your toes into the deep end. With upgraded deeper pockets, the Diamond Drop locks you into every slide while freeriding. Enhance your downhill experience with a new type of Apex. Slide every which way with a diamond beneath your feet.

Unlimited MPG

The Diamond Drop is a laidback low rider of a longboard. The dropped standing platform allows for a more comfortable stance while pushing. The feel of the pockets tells you where your feet are, so you only have to worry about dodging traffic. Pair the Apex with S8 Original Trucks for a tight turning radius & an even lower pushing platform that allows you to drop off a curb, carve around your neighbor’s dog, or navigate your city.

Bread + Butter

The deeper concave of the new Apex 40 Diamond Drop gives you more control over your slides, while the expanded effective standing platform lets you stand closer to your trucks for more leverage & easier slide initiation. Bigger riders & those with a wider stance rejoice, for the Apex 40 is wider (in all directions) to accommodate your needs. On the Diamond Drop, technical slides & fast freeride go together like bread & butter.

That Sweet Spot

Grab one to do your part in pushing skating to the next level.

    This is one of my all-time favorite boards! It’s amazing for freestyle with the PKs and the drop allows for ultimate control. Your feet lock into the drops when sliding, so it’s really stable for freeride as well. I also love this deck for long distance skating because the inch drop makes it low and easy to push, and the kicktails are nice for navigating city streets. The Apexes are super durable so I’d recommend this for someone who wants a board that can fit any riding style and will last a very long time!

    So I’ve rode somewhere in the 20-30 different deck range everything from pintail to down hill bomber boards this apex 40 is truly the beat board I’ve ever been on its light but still durable and stiff enough for speed with a little flex for making sliding a breeze the kick tails are a nice addition. This board is perfect for any riding style from commuting to free ride. I’ve taken it out to my favorite local hills 14 days in a row and dont hsve a single thing I could complain about. * this is not a paid or promoted review this is the review of a long time thane shreader expressing gratitude to all of you at original** -Jordy From WA State USA

    The Original Apex series are the most inventive boards I’ve ever ridden. Before I skated the Apex 40 DD I would tear through my longboards in 1 month, but now that I ride my Apex 40 all I have to do is replace the noseguards every once in a while! If you’re looking for a board that can do it all, you’re gonna love the Apex 40 Diamond Drop.

    Best all around board in the market!!! I’ve been using my Apex 40 diamond drop for almost 5 years now and it’s still usable thanks to the PK guards. This board is very durable I’m a freestyle rider so it got beaten a lot but still looks like nothing happened to the board just minor scratches at the sides of the board. If your looking for a all around board especially a freestyle board you should definitely go for this one 🙂

    Wow !!
    The best longboard I’ve ever tried.
    With this deck I’ve learned everything about sliding and now after five years It still reamains the best.
