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.

Pete Benda – Crooked Grind… really crooked. 

Ever wonder what it is like to work at Daddies Board Shop? Well, there is more behind the scenes action than anything else but occasionally we get to have ourselves a little fun. One way we do that is by heading out to our parking lot. Pretty much every day after work we all go out and skate. We have boxes, banks, and a bunch of great curbs for slappies.

 

 

Jeffrey Acciaioli – FS 5-0

We pretty much build all of our stuff from shipping crates and whatnot that we get from all of our manufacturers. When I say we I mean our warehouse manager Tony B builds it, the dude is crazy. It is pretty cool actually… he takes shipping palettes and turns them into skate features. Kind of baffling really.

So working at Daddies does end up being pretty rad. We can’t exactly leave during the day to go hit up hills so we have to make due with what we got around us and I think we do that pretty well. The word “unfortunately” doesn’t really apply when we say we can’t go out and skate hills. Because fortunately we are getting to stoke out kids across the globe by making sure they all their their gear they ordered. It’s rough stuff but it is a labor of love!
