The Comet Archetype

Video

So, clearly Comet has been making some big moves over the past little bit but there is a little something we are super excited about more than anything.

Meet the Comet Archetype.

This board is a top mounted (actually, FLUSH cut top mounted, which means the bottom of the board has been routed out a bit so your trucks fit directly into the actual skateboard resulting in a lower ride height and a little added control with weight distribution on your rails while riding), a mid size length at 37″ and a pretty wide width at 9.75″. All these size features are complimented by a rockered platform and concave that are sure to hold your feet right in while your goin’ sideways at maximum speed.

The Comet Archetype is a symetrical board, meaning the exact same from nose to tail. Ride it regular, ride it switch, it doesn’t matter.

As for wheelbase, we’ve got two options to choose from. 26.3″ on the inner mounts will ensure some very responsive turning and the extra inch on the 27.3″ outer mounts will provide that little extra stability when speed is certainly a factor in your riding.

Our boy Liam helped film this video of Anthony Flis and Eric Jensen ripping this board around the super gnar hills of Berkeley, California.

Team rider Ishtar Backlund kicking it with Ambassadors Eric Hoang and Richard Topete

So Maryhill has come around again! This year got very very rowdy and very out of control. I am glad we got to be a part of it. Check out some of the photos from the event. We ran around, camera-happy, and got a bunch of great shots for you to enjoy!

Team Rider Amanda Powell hanging out with shop employee/gangster Jesse Stuart

We were slanging all sorts of goodies up there. If you weren’t there to get in on our awesome deals and mayhem then you were missing out! Abec 11′s and Landyachtz Biggie Hawgs were flying off the shelves!

Patrick Switzer getting crazy-faced! Love this dude.

Patrick Switzer went on to win the event and it was a huge win for Rayne longboards as well. Patrick was on a sweet prototype slalom deck and absolutely killed it!

The homie James Kelly… you may know him as the American Dream!

Daddies riders! The beautiful Marisa Nunez and Alex “The Fiercest” Tongue!

Bricin “Striker” Lyons! … And Rebekka Gemperle… what a babe!

Camping like a boss!

Camping out in a good location is KEY if you want to avoid some of the skater’s campsite mayhem… We avoided it until the final night in the maryhill state park! it was great!

Camping in the makeshift tent… awesome!

Tad Drysdale!

Loaded and Orangatang’s Kyle Chin!

This is the man that is responsible for quite a bit of the Loaded and Orangatang videos and product that you all love!  Kyle CHIN!

Douglas Dalua!!! Love this dude too… such a gnarly rider!

Douglas Dalua is loved by everyone! He set a new track record on his rayne and abec 11 wheels! He has a new wheel sponsor but he was still on abec 11′s!

Alex Tongue Butt-Boarding for King of the Hill!

It started raining pretty heavily during the King Of The Hill race between the top 6 qualifiers. Everyone was butt-boarding except for James Kelly who decided to stand up after he started. James ended up winning king of the hill for his second year in a row! Go James! AMERICAN DREAM!

Jesse Stuart and Pete Benda running the show.

Alexa got us a lot of attention, everyone had a crush on her!

My buddy Daniel Figueroa all the way up from Mexico! Good to see him again this year!

Zak belted it out for the national anthem. Who knew that the dude who created Venom wheels and bushings, and who also rides for madrid would be killing the national anthem. I’ve seen him sing it before though haha… good work Zak!

Mischo Erban, Bricin Striker Lyons, and Patrick Switzer singing the canadian national anthem for Canada Day… whatever that is haha.

Those comet leg patches are sick… but Byron was definitely riding a Rayne Killswitch… I think his board was out of commission. I saw him carrying around his beloved chopped Comet Takeover.

Pam AGAIN!!!! She is on FIRE!

She is on fire! Pam Diaz is GREEN!!!

In a box from Abec 11, Daddies Board Shop Team Rider Pam Diaz, found a note that read… “GRN TM / Skate Fast.”

I feel like all we are doing is blogging about Pam but it is hard not to when she gives us so much reason to! There is a lot left unsaid but it is looking like Pam Diaz is going to be getting hooked up from Abec 11. We sure hope she does. Abec 11 is smart to get her on board early. Pam is just one of those riders with natural talent. If you give her the tools she is going to build an empire; that is the type of rider and person that she is. We have watched Pam grow into the fine rider that she is today and when we see companies like Abec 11 getting in on her steeziness… it really brings a smile to our faces.

Felicidades Amiga! You are killing it! Keep up the good work and you are bound to go far!!!

Pam Diaz Keeps On Killing It!!!

Pampita… you keep on impressing me and I am sure everyone else as well! I remember it was almost 2 years ago when I found your photography and wanted to do a write up about you on the blog.  Back then you were just starting to get more and more into longboarding… I can still remember all your orders! In no time at all you have turned into a gnarly skater that can threaten the boys on the hill! You have all the skills to make you a prize for any team to have; you skate good, you learn fast, you make rad videos, and you are insanely artistic. Pam, you rock so Im putting you back up on our blog!

For any of you who don’t know… Pam is a 22 year old shredder from the Dominican Republic. She has helped take their small but passionate scene down there and put it on the map. She has already become an Ambassador for “The Longboard Girls Crew,” as well as a team rider for Comet Skateboards. Check out her longboard website, “Long Life, Long Livin‘,” in your spare time.  It is full of photographs and videos, its basically all in spanish (conversations) but skating is a universal language all in its own!

Pam Diaz, You Know You Love Her!

Want to shred like Pam? Well you are going to have to step your game up quite a bit but here is a little insight into the gear she is shredding! In this video above you can see Pam mashing on her Comet Skateboards Grease Hammer, which is an amazingly fun board. She is on some Abec 11 freerides for some of it but then it switches to some Landyachtz Mini Hawgs. For trucks she is on some 176mm RKP Surf-Rodz. She has a nice looking Triple Eight Brainsaver helmet on and if you can’t tell by those awesome yellow pucks, she has some Sector 9 Driver gloves on… some ones I rock!

Pam has really only just stepped onto the scene and she is making a dent everywhere she goes. You best believe that there is a bright future out there for Pam… she is going to get BIG… I called it a while ago and I am sticking to it. You just wait and see! Good job Pam! Keep killing it! XD
