DB Longboards Contra with Toni Conte

DB Longboards team rider Toni Conte went for a rip through the Canary Islands in Spain on our Contra 35.5" longboard. Our Contra comes in two sizes the 35.5" version and a longer 38.5" version.

"Contra" is the root of opposition and contrast. A literal dichotomy of ideas. Our Contra Deck is a comfy blend of Tub and W concave, creating a versatile standing platform that is great for DH and Freeride.
