The Sapling is a new shape for 2024. Built with the city streets in mind, the deck has a traditional street deck concave but cut into a hybrid cruiser shape. A Fully functional kick tail but slightly stubby nose make this deck capable of hitting your local skatepark or street spots while still being compact enough to bring anywhere! The Maple and Basalt construction make a strong deck with a slight amount of flex for energy return while carving.

 Cruise, carve and shred your way through your local streets!

SPECS

Length: 33”(83.82cm)

Width: 8.6”(21.84cm)

Wheelbase: 16”(40.64cm)

CONSTRUCTION

The Sapling is crafted out of 6 plies of hard rock Great Lakes Maple and two layers of 13oz Biaxial Basalt.

COMBO WHEELS: THE MIXER

The Combo Mixer is the perfect choice in a wheel for the Sapling Complete. Shaped like a street wheel but with the plush urethane of a soft wheel, the Mixer suits most applications from hitting the streets to slashing on hills. The small size keeps them light for flip tricks and hitting the park while the soft urethane and round lips make them great for cruising, carving and some sliding. Combo wheels are poured in the USA in a premium urethane formula.

ACE TRUCKS: CLASSIC 44’S

We chose Ace Classic 44’s for The Sapling Complete because they have the best turn out of any TKP truck we have ridden. Perfect for carving and slashing around your local city streets!

ABOUT FOSTER BOARDS

MATERIALS

All of the materials we put into our boards are aimed at being as sustainable as possible.

-The Wood is sourced from a sustainable mill

-The Glue used in our boards is a water based PVA glue for lowest environmental impact

-The Resin used is 29% bio based resin called SuperSap by Entropy Resins

-Basalt and Fiberglass are consider the most sustainable of all reinforcement fabrics. Basalt Fabric is made from Basalt or more commonly know as lava rock. Fiberglass is mainly made from sand something that is very abundant.

-The Inks used in our graphics are water based acrylic inks, significantly less toxic for the environment than the oil based inks used by most in the industry

-The Lacquer used to seal our boards is a waterborne lacquer with extremely low VOC content which leads to less impact on the environment.

GRAPHICS

All of our graphics are hand screen printed in our shop in Seattle, WA. 

They are printed using high quality water based inks. Because they are screen printed by hand, slight variations might be present in each board. 

All Graphics are created by Gerry Kreuder with a collaboration of ideas from the team.

PROCESS

All of our boards are made from start to finish in our shop in Seattle, WA.

We have strict quality control rules in place throughout the process to insure each and every board that leaves our shop is of the highest quality.

Our CNC machine and programming is able to process material with accuracy better than .001” which guarantees 100 percent accurate boards and specs every time.
