The Low rider of the Kingdom Range, has a lower center of gravity due to the deck sitting closer to the ground creating less wobbles and more stability while skating. This helps make it easier to push and comfortable to skate longer distances. The shape is symmetrical (Front to back) so you don’t need to worry which is the front or back of the board. These attributes work well for beginners or people doing freestyle helping them learn the basic skills.
The main thing to take in consideration with Drop Through trucks is the delayed turning response which makes it more difficult to turn and carve than other boards in our range.

Each deck is uniquely hand crafted from start to finish at the Kingdom Factory in Cape Town. Our Timbers are hand selected piece by piece for the highest quality. The selected wood then goes through a process of being machined, laminated and pressed into various concaves.
Once pressed, the blank is set up on an automated machine where the truck holes are precision drilled for 100% accuracy and then taken into the shaping bay where it gets shaped, thoroughly sanded and finally sprayed giving each board an authentic finish.
No deck is ever the same, each having their own fingerprint of natural wood grain.
All our woods come from sustainable plantations (FSC certificated) around the world and we strive to keep everything we do as environmentally friendly as possible.
