Alternative La Barou 2019 Longboard Deck
The all-new Lillian Barou signature longboard deck model the “La Barou” was designed to become your perfect companion during skate trips to lucrative mountain passes. Sporting a durable full wood construction in a compact size, the La Barou is the perfect match for anyone who prefers a narrow stance and an aggressive kicktail design.
The La Barou presents a durable full wood construction featuring a new lightweight wood core surrounded by strengthening hardwood laminates and fiberglass for the perfect balance between stiffness and longevity.
Its specially designed sandwich construction enables its distinctive fat bottom that extends through the board’s length and slightly narrows around the front and back side edges. This allows the shaping of bigger wheel wells for improved wheel clearance, so you can pair the La Barou with any size of longboard wheels without needing to worry about wheelbite.
With a top-mount truck mounting system, this board offers a more direct weight distribution on the trucks for improved maneuverability and board control at higher speeds.
