The story of the Kanthaka is rooted in happenstance, revelation, and serendipity.
In August of 2011 we began discussing the possible redesign of the Ceviche deck. Considering a variety of new profiles, we started testing prototypes and were pleased with the modifications to several aspects of the board. As shapes became more refined and we spent more time riding the boards and exploring a spectrum of skating styles and applications, however, we found ourselves conflicted with the direction of the project. On one hand, we wanted this board to be the next step in the evolution of the Fish and Ceviche genealogy: a pumpable, agile, and trick capable city commuter with just the right amount of lively flex. On the other hand, we also found ourselves wanting a board that was stiffer and more aggressive to instil confidence for a wider variety of riding styles. At the time, Kyle was spending much of his time freeriding neighbourhood runs and driveways with his friends on large double-kicks like the Gravity Pool 36. Adam S. and Dane both come from street skating backgrounds and were riding double-kicks at the skate park and street skating sessions in our warehouse. It seemed that this was an ideal opportunity to explore this style of board and add our own perspectives and experience to a classic concept: a streetready double-kick with substantial inclinations toward freeriding and technical sliding. After some deliberation, we concluded that the performance characteristics we desired would be best divided amongst two separate boards. The first of these boards that we present to you now is the Kanthaka; the other will poke its head out from the shadows soon enough.
