SLIPSTREAM LONGBOARDS QUIVER 2012 THIS IS HOW WE ROLL

JACKAL DT

2012 - This is how we roll We are celebrating 10 years & the scene is stronger than ever! Development has never been faster with new models, shapes, materials, riders, brands, styles & ideas flowing out from everywhere around the world. This year we are introducing two new models. Our flagship freeride board - The Jackal & our new slide & trick board - The Hammer. Most boards get minor fixes & tweaks, but the major

changes are. The DFA gets a new redesigned shape & bigger wheel wells, The Wedgie becomes a bit shorter with a new shape, The Platypus gets a wider body & finally, after 10 years, it’s time to retire our first board The Supercrusher. We are also dividing our lineup in three different segments. The aggressive, the progressive & the classic boards. Read more on the last page. See you out there!


JACKAL TM

We are proud to introduce our most advanced freeride board The Jackal! This board is custom made for us in Canada & is available both as a dropthrough & topmount. The stiff & durable 9-ply design with a dropped platform will most certainly become a team favourite! Design: Andrè Skjeggestad

Locals Apparel is that lazy hot afternoon when you suddenly feel a cool breeze. Smoky air at some BBQ party. Vague bruises from a awesome ride. Dedicated delicate design. Rather indy than indie. Tanned legs. Daydeams of swaying palms. Working hard and playing harder. A perfect grind. Sun-warmed concrete. Kidney shaped pools. Rebels without causes. Solo but soulful. Venice’s winding boardwalks. Home is where the art is. A dream of doing something for the likeminded. Locals is not only a brand but a lifestyle. It’s a little piece of California, from the Swedish west coast, Gothenburg. www.localsapparel.se


BUDDY

Short, wide, quick & stiff - The buddy takes you wherever you want whenever you want. It’s variable wheelbase options helps you dial in that ultimate feeling. You will wonder where The Buddy has been all your life. So stop reading, you need this board! The Buddy is a Locals Apparel colab.
