The Madrid Nessie is an epic do-it-all freeride/DH board!

The rocker combined with the flared wheel wells and 'Power Orbs' creates amazing foot pockets that can lock you in yet still give freedom to change your foot position when needed.

This longboard deck is 9.25" wide towards the nose and 8.5" wide towards the tail.

We suggest running 184mm Caliber II Trucks with 70mm RAD Wheels for freeride/DH fun and Beasto bearings.

Madrid's Description

The Nessie features a unique rocker/flare concave with Power Orbs and large CNC wheel wells. Flush mounts compensate for the rocker so your trucks site flat on the board. The Power ORbs provide references for your feet while tucking or during long slides. Don't be fooled by the mellow kicktail which actually packs a ton of pop, making the Nessie one of the most versatile boards in our lineup. Top it all off with a stiff 8-ply maple and Formica layup and you have yourself a true freeride legend capable of whatever you can imagine.

Heavy, but not bad

I set up my Nessie with 165mm arsenal trucks and a set of fresh 65mm Cuei sliders for some smooth freeride. Although the recommended truck width is 180mm or 184mm, I found this to stick out far past the edge of the deck, so it was not my preference, although riders searching to do some more intense downhill riding may prefer the wider trucks. 165mm fits well for me, sticking out just 1/4 inch or so. The wheel flares offer better grip just between them, but are not comfortable to stand directly on. As I stated when I began, this deck is a little heavy to pop, but more experienced freeriders can definitely get something when using the shorter wheelbase options. Overall, I believe it’s a great option for riders looking for directional freeride decks with the intent of sliding and charging light hills, as opposed to tricks.

Best if used on the smallest wheelbase

For me, the main selling point of this board is the supple kicktail. The tail has incredible pop and is extremely durable. I can consistently do bangin' kickflips even with a DH trucks and wheels. I've even seen a dude shred a skatepark with a Nessie. However, if you utilize any of the other mounting options, the tail quickly becomes pointless. I have size 13 feet, and the front of the standing platform feels amazing if you're standing just at the inner edge of the wheel flares. In my opinion, the wheel flares at the nose are too steep to stand directly on. The taper at the back of the board is a little too small for my taste, but those who love edge-to-edge control will find that steering with your back foot feels amazing. I have used this board for all manner of skating, including commuting, DH, freeride, flatground/freestyle, and I even learned a couple dance steps on it. The only thing that hinders some of those unorthodox disciplines is the weight of the board. She heavy. Other than that, I can tell that the vibration dampening is significant and that the construction is solid. My board only has a slight warping, but I don't notice anything while riding. Also, the "power orbs" are totally a gimmick and seemingly do nothing to the overall feel of the concave. If anything, they make pushing a little awkward, but thanks to the rocker the pushing can be redeemed. Let me wrap this up by saying this board is an awesome single-kick board that will last a long time and be killer for DH and freeride. The kicktail rocks, but only on the inner wheelbase.
Great Board!

i got this board to go fast, which is exactly what it does. the wheel flares and curves on the board make it handle differently everywhere you put your feet on the board, with varying levels of maneuverability, which makes it a blast to learn how to ride. this board is pretty heavy though, i cant get it to jump but it does stay planted, i have paris v2's and seismic tantrums and can go on any hill with confidence. the griptape is also awesome, but beware for your hands, it will sand them down. overall though it is a great downhill and freeride board.

Perfect in too many ways

The first day I stepped on the board, what I noticed immediately is how incredibly smooth and vibration dampening this deck is. The formica layer really does its job. Wheel flares + the "power orbs" concave feel great in stand up slides and I find myself staying on the board after rough checks a lot more than I would on other boards. Flypaper grip that it came with didn't feel as good as vicious grip at first but I got used to it quickly and it does its job as well. Also the shape and graphic are beautiful! Should have gotten it sooner
