Rip it up on a budget with new Hard Rock Maple team shapes by Santa Cruz Skateboards. The CheckStrip by SC is shaped for a technical street skater or someone who prefers a slimmer shape. What's the deal with Hard Rock Maple? "Hard Rock Maple" trees grow in the arctic freeze zones of the planet, so with temperatures like that, you know these boards are stiff. Great wood at a great price for any type of skater.
