Inspired by the Dinghy Classic, the Dinghy Blunt shape is slightly wider and noticeably easier to skate! This extra width allows us to set the Blunt up with wider trucks, which increases stability and control. Artist Kristoffer Lloyd Valera doesn’t exactly think that reapin’ is very easy but hopefully this board will make your daily commute a little bit easier and a lot more fun!
The Dinghy Blunt is a small cruiser board that comes in at 28.5" long and 8.6” wide. The extra width up front and mild taper means you get more leverage over the front truck than the rear one, which gives it a somewhat directional steering characteristic. The Blunt jumps up in size from our other Dinghy models, and so do the trucks. We set the Dinghy Blunt up with Polar Bear 130s to match the added width perfectly. This setup works best with smaller wheels, so we set it up with 60mm 78a Chubby Hawgs to keep you low to the ground and give you great acceleration. You will have lots of space left over on the trucks for grinds and a nice gradual turn. With virtually the same wheelbase as the Dinghy Classic & about 20 percent more surface area on the top, you will have the same mini board vibes that you get from the Dinghy, but with added stability and control.
