About Stalk it™ Longboards
All Stalk It™ Longboards are made from an innovative new material, called CornBoard™ which is engineered specifically for Stalk It™ Longboards. CornBoard™ is a renewable and environmentally responsible material that is made by combining leftover corn husks and leaves with a resin under heat and pressure. Since CornBoard™ is specifically engineered for each product that it is put into; it is the perfect material for the core of the Stalk It™ 48Five deck. The 100% CornBoard™ core is sandwiched between layers of premium hardwood. The composite structure of the laminated hardwoods and CornBoard™ core give the deck strength and stability while creating a responsive feel that riders crave.
