The first time I hopped on the path 37, I was hooked. The complete package looks great and made me feel confident in the quality! The Original trucks are definitely what make this board unique. They are different than anything I have ever ridden before. They donít use a traditional bushing to give you your turn but use a spring instead. The geometry of the Original trucks allows for some ridiculously tight carves yet can be stable enough for some faster cruising! I rode this board in a variety of situations. I really enjoyed riding the path 37 in the park and it performed well in the bowl. I felt like I was surfing my short board! The Path 37 was also a great commuter as it tracked well and was easy to push. I also enjoyed riding the path on some mild hills as it carved amazingly. I recommend YOU try it out!

Original has dialed the flex perfectly on this board. Mated with the Original S8 200mm trucks it carves and pumps like a dream. Using composite construction this board should keep itís flex and life for much longer than the traditional wood and glue construction. The board has a slight tortional flex to it that really can be seen in the pictures. From low speed quick turns to higher speed carving it was a fun ride. I had no problems with stability at moderate speed yet I still had the ability to turn 180 degrees in half the width of the road if I wanted to! Riding these trucks is something completely different to traditional reverse kingpin trucks. They have a flat spot at the top that keeps you going straight but when you lean the board it offers very little resistance to turning making it super easy to carve big slashes in the road. Overall this board was easy to ride and I was able to get it to grip reliably when I wanted and let loose and drift also when I wanted. This is definitely and excellent board and the price canít be beat.

to demo this board tell us what shop you frequent and we'll loan it to them for a few weeks [or months].
  • Try not to ride the trucks too tight (they are supposed to be super loose and surfy),
  • You should always be able to see a little sliver of the white bushing sticking out the back of the truck.
  • If the white bushing is below the metal housing in the back the trucks are too tight.
