Board Of The Month: DC Devun Walsh

Devun’s deck has a lot to live up to. As a consummate pro who’s been shredding for 22 years, he knows how a board should ride. His build is the top-of-the-line deck from DC and comes in a stable, flat profile with slightly rockered tips for pow float and steady ollies. It’s built around a lightweight poplar wood core and ash hardwood stringers for increased sturdiness. Its high-density dimpled base reduces suction and offers unmatched speed, even without wax. Carbon-laced fiberglass and a maple hardwood veneer topsheet finish it off. It’s got everything a Canadian legend, or aspiring one, could need. Style not included.

About The Graphic
