Roaming the desert in search of paved glory. Circa 2012. Desert nights with bonfire and star filled skies and dawn patrol sessions make for a bitchin’ trip
Sun is shining the weather is sweet! and with it comes a completely new board – the DUKE – the first of our all new Dasilva Roots Collection. The Roots Collection is our way to get back to the basics, where it all started. Late night parking sessions with dumb smiles and glassy eyes, cruising bare footed to the beach, learning slides or cross-steps. Good times without a hint of seriousness, skateboarding stripped down to its roots. First of the collection is the Duke – our take on the classic Pintail with a modern tech twist. Mellow concave, a little rocker and medium flex, make the Duke a great commuter, cruiser and all around fun board. Constructed of a Finnish Birch core wrapped in multi-axial fiberglass, it is incredibly light and snappy. Wether you’re a veteran racer, primo dancer or it’s your first time on board, we guarantee you won’t be able to keep the smile off you face.

Every now and then we get the pleasure of going roaming along with a couple of cameras and a bag of stoke.
Recently we went on a 4 day expedition through our backcountry, searching for fresh pavement and new horizons. The journey was of the finest we’ve done yet and was skillfully documented by our brothers Amit Schwacht &Tom Goldwasser .
Sit back, push HD and enjoy the magic of our land.
