The Tombstone is our first offering into the realm of smaller DH/Freeride boards. This board features mellow radial concave, rocker, mellow flares, and our signature rear “Ghost W”. These features, although mellow, do a fantastic job keeping your feet in position at speed and when initiating high speed slides. Get your narrow trucks and big wheels ready, pick up a Tombstone, and head out to your local hills!
The Tombstone and its graphic were designed in collaboration with team rider, Cami DeMaria.
Width at Belly: 9.25”(23.5cm)
Width at Trucks: 8.5”(21.59cm)
The Tombstone is crafted out of 7 plies of hard rock Great Lakes Maple and two layers of Triaxial Fiberglass.
ABOUT FOSTER BOARDS
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.
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.
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.
