Island Lifestyle Drop Deck 43" Longboard Complete
The huge 2" (5cm) drop and wide double-concave design makes you feel at one with the road. The front of the board is super wide at 10.5" (26.5cm) and tapers towards the tail.
This board is truly unique because although the board is designed as a performance board for serious riders, it is very popular with beginners because of the low centre of gravity. It is great for both free riding or landpaddling.

Artwork by world famous Dennis Mathewson. A Master Artist based in Hawaii. His words on the art work of Island Lifestyle:
What do you hope people feel when looking at the original design?
I hope when folks see the design of Island Lifestyle and the art from Hawaii they will see us as more than just beaches, surf, flower leis, hotels and mai tais. Hawaii really is a cool place full of contemporary art, food, music and an extremely unique tattoo art style. I share my view of Hawaii's people and their passion for the islands in this painting I call, Island Lifestyle.
What was your inspiration for the artwork of Island Lifestyle?
While approaching the Island Lifestyle concept, I had in mind my friends and the people I know who live in Hawaii. The term we use is 'mixed plate,' meaning, we all come together from different backgrounds, likes and dislikes. That being said, we all form one community. The mix of different ethnicities and cultures make Hawaii a unique and special place. Island Lifestyle shares what I see and feel as that view, with a little edge to it.
What does it mean to have your artwork featured on Kahuna Creations longboards?
With Kahuna Creations using my artwork, my images will be seen in the outdoors on the streets as well as fine art galleries. My work initially started on projects like motorcycles and automobiles, so it is exciting to see it displayed outdoors once again.
