The Trip double drop longboard is back! Our most popular long distance skateboard to date. This is a small, light, and agile double drop longboard, and it is Pantheon’s specialty. With our proprietary Crescent Drop, The Trip may be one of the most recommended longboards in the world for commuting and distance travel. Our goal with the Trip is to create the highest quality ride possible, extending the value far beyond its price.

We only offer the finest components here on our website because we care about your ride experience. That perfect experience is undoubtedly a large part of why people fall in love with Pantheon Longboards.

What’s New on Our Updated Trip Longboard

· Deeper Drop! – This double drop longboard pusher has a 1.3 inch drop! This gets you lower than ever for easier distance pushing and longboard commuting
· More Flex! – We increased the flex by changing the curves. More flex + stronger layup = stronger board without losing liveliness.
· Better Lamination! – Mold improvements and epoxy lamination make this distance longboard deck more durable than ever.
· Ergonomic Improvements! – A dedicated mold for this board means we designed the curves specifically for this shape and your feet.
· Aesthetic Improvements! – Stained wood veneer and laser cut griptape really make the Trip pop on the street.

The Utilitarian Double Drop for Distance Riding

The Trip is the premier double drop longboard for distance, whether longboard commuting to work or traveling long distances. And it is easily our best longboard for beginners. We tend to suggest the Trip for true distance riding and then point toward the Ember as a mini cruiser commuter longboard. Either double drop longboard will serve as a proper distance skateboard. Both are low to the ground, lightweight, and easy to push.  Both are supportive of large wheels with thin trucks. And both are pretty darn small! These characteristics are really our mantra for the purpose of commuter and distance skateboarding. Include the parts that matter, and do it in the best way possible, and that’s it!

Lastly, consider purchasing this awesome double drop longboard deck with our Free Hands Fingerless Slide Gloves. We made these gloves specifically for distance skating and urban commuting, when you might want your fingers handy to take a picture of that gorgeous mountain or elk crossing the bike path, or to send your loved ones a text letting them know you’ll be home for dinner. These are a utilitarian glove, fully aligned with our design mantra, that allow you to throw down a hand if things get hectic, but otherwise will stay out of your way.

The BEST Longboard for Beginners

The Trip may be the best longboard for beginners on the market, and it comes highly recommended. The 1.3-inch drop get you so low to the ground, it will inspire confidence, and it will improve push speed and efficiency for all who skate it. Our premier double drop longboard is pressed with resin to further preserve the wood and increase its life when compared with classic builds pressed with standard wood glue. Concave remains low, and we gave the platform the tiniest bit of camber to “load” the wood. This provides a comfortable and more lively commute. We increased the width by 1/4″ from previous models to 9.25″ at the widest to perfect the setups we are recommending for the deck. The wider profile and increased prominence of the drop platform lock you in and really make this deck perform when sliding down hills and turning around corners.

We are riding this board with Paris 150mm trucks. We keep the setup slim for ergonomics, keeping the feet and hips aligned under the body when pushing. This way you can spend more of your time on board being centered and focusing on power and control. It is important to note that no other double drop longboard on the planet has been designed this way. This is ideal for distance skating, because the less energy you’re spending on your balance, the more energy you have to travel. And beginner longboarders will benefit from not kicking the wheels and smashing face. More distance and commuting efficiency makes for more fun, and that’s the whole point of this deck. We want you to feel empowered to get places on your skateboard. You will ride more often. It is our goal to inspire you to ride your Pantheon Longboard whenever possible.

If you are a beginner skateboarder, extra note of this section. Wheelbite is more frequent among those who don’t understand it.  Make sure you get your double drop longboard setup right! Many salespeople will simply recommend the easy setup with 180mm trucks and 70mm wheels. This is fine, and you still get a ton of benefits from the design of the board. But it is not optimized for true distance skating and beginner longboarders will be more likely to kick the wheels!

We designed this board to fit with a slim overall setup, which is why we only offer it with 149mm and 150mm trucks. With a Paris 149mm Street Truck, bite is near impossible, and you can even fit wider wheels like the Orangatang Caguama completely bite-free. With the 150mm RKP trucks, bite will just barely be possible with an 85mm Seismic Speed Vent. This happens only at the VERY end of the turn, and for us, has never been an issue while riding. You will slide out before biting if you are going any decent speed. Where riders may face issues, and this is just something to be aware of (and ride accordingly), is when you are riding at very slow speeds and try to take a full-lean turn. This is where you can snag a wheel. You can do one of two things here:

First, you can adjust your bushings. I don’t think anyone of any weight can make Orangatang (Yellow) Hard Nipple bushings bite with Paris 150mm and 85mm Speed Vents. If you opt for the softer bushings, do so according to your weight, ride style, and tolerance for wheel bite.

Secondly, you can just pay attention to how you ride your board, and know that bite is possible at the very end of the turn at very low speeds. At higher speeds, you will literally slide out before this would ever happen. Understand the limitations and ride accordingly! Is it worth it for the thin overall setup? HELL YES IT IS. Your push will be more ergonomic and you will understand the benefit of this from the moment you step on your deck.

If you are looking for bushing suggestions, we highly recommend Orangantang Nipples and Riptide Canons. Both are slightly oversized bushings that will restrict just that last bit of truck lean, making wheelbite impossible. We also space out the trucks with both speed washers on the inside, which gives you just a touch of extra room. This extra space actually makes a substantial difference! If you are a beginner skateboarder, take extra note of this section. Wheelbite is more frequent among those who don’t understand it.  Make sure you get your double drop longboard setup right! Many salespeople will simply recommend the easy setup with 180mm trucks and 70mm wheels. This is fine, and you still get a ton of benefits from the design. But it is not optimized for true distance skating and beginner longboarders will be more likely to kick the wheels!

  1. Geoff Simpson

    I’m 6ft 4 inches and about 200 pounds and wanted a shorter, lighter low pusher. The 8 ply Trip suits me perfectly. It takes my weight no problem and although short, doesn’t feel it as the standing platform is still really roomy. Love the design too. Couldn’t be happier with it.

  2. Tanner

    Got the red version as my first board and couldn’t be happier. Very compact deck but has more than enough room for my feet. Paired with some 150mm trucks and it can take any campus corner.

  3. Cruiser

    Good low boards for cruising the city.

  4. Lady

    For my 155 pounds the 7 Trip is perfect. My friend have both Trips and is 165 pounds. With TKP trucks it has more flex than with RKP trucks.

  5. Seth

    I’ve had a 2018 Trip for a couple weeks now. Awesome…..just awesome. If you are looking for a true long distance push board, this is it! Great construction and performance for the money. Thanks Jeff and keep up the good work!

    I’ve owned a lot of boards. I’ve had arbors, landyachtz, Loadeds, and more.

    There’s something special about this board. Its ride is butter-smooth. It’s easy to push and brake because of its height. The stock equipment is high quality. It’s lightweight, and has a large amount of usable room relative to its size. It’s comfortable. It’s fast.

    I got this board to commute the distance between Hells Kitchen and Wall St. It does that very well — much better than my Loaded Bhangra. I’ve taken it carving and downhill. It’s frankly my favorite board for its utility, weight, size, ride, and ease of use.

    I’m thrilled with it, and I’m sure you will be too.

  7. Peter J.

    I LOVE the Trip. I’ve been riding one for over a year now and it is by far my favorite push board. I’m a bigger guy, and this thing has just the right amount of flex, length, and width. I do mostly mountain pushing, so lots of ups with lots of downs, and this deck is perfect! When I get another deck, it will most likely just be another Trip, unless Pantheon comes out with something even better (doubt it, but it could happen). Love, love, love this board!!

  8. Jason Goldberg

    I have been riding for 40 years and this Trip is one awesome deck, I’ve been riding it for 4 months now, and at 230 lbs, this deck shows now signs of fatigue, it’s snappy, light and muy guapo, I have the red model and have given it to my daughter to ride, she digs it, Paris trucks, seismic wheels

  9. Blake Hendricks (verified owner)

    The trip is very easy and comfortable to push. Its really helped me learn regular and mongo to go the distance, plus you can never go wrong with Otang and Paris parts

  10. Sam A

    I’ve found the trip to be the perfect all around LDP board because of it’s stiffer construction over the Ember. I have no problem pushing long distances with the double drop setup and with it’s stiffer construction I can still have fun slashing around when I’m cruising through my neighborhood. It is a little hefty in comparison to my friends ember, but the sacrifice for a more comfortable slide is worth it.

    I’d highly recommend this deck to someone looking to focus on LDP, but might dabble in some light freeride or even parking garages.

  11. Yener Uslucan

    I was really curious about the deck that every long distance pusher raves about. Ordered one and YES this board is THE push board to get. Beginning with the beautiful meaningful graphic this board is a screamer! I had so many people asking me what board this is because it just looks so awesome. Besides the great looks this board is also highly comfortable because of the double drop and the 33″ lenght its also a great commuter , you can fit it under your desk or just anywhere with a little gap 🙂 i highly recommend this board with the 150mm paris trucks and 85mm speedvents. Thanks for this awesome board.

  12. Sophie

    This board is pure butter. The roads and sidewalks where I live are pretty rough (lots of cracks from hot temps) but the Trip makes my commute a breeze. Get the recommended set-up and you won’t regret it! I’ve got the 8-ply and at 130 lb I wasn’t expecting a lot of flex but it’s got a surprisingly comfy amount of flex for me. Every second I spend on this board feels so fun and natural. If you’re hesitating at all on buying this, take this review as the signal for you to do it. Pushing the Trip down a smooth, open road is a feeling like no other.

  13. Dylan

    (7ply red trip, 150mm paris rkp, 78mm mango blast waves) The Trip is the perfect board for pushing. Im 180lbs and the 7 ply handles my weight just fine. I’d recommend to anyone 170+ lbs to get the biggest wheels you can to really make sure you don’t bottom out on hard carves. The flex is super comfortable and just makes riding the board feel great. Carving is very satisfying, and pushing is springy and easy with the low clearance. Ive even thrown on some liams and taken this thing freeriding. The low weight and double drop make it so easy to throw out steezy slides.

  14. Marika

    I can’t say enough good things about this board!

    I’ve got the OG, first-gen 7-ply red Trip; my typical setup for it is Indy 159mm trucks and purple Orangatang Durians. I know, this seems like an unconventional setup, but it is my perfect pusher. The 159s get me low to the ground–always a top priority for me, having come to longboarding from snowboarding. They also work perfectly with the Durians–flipped so the core is to the outside–to ensure that the trucks & wheels are exactly the same width as the Trip, so I’m never accidentally kicking the wheels on long distance push sessions.

    Now, onto the board itself. The concave is absolutely perfect for a pusher–there’s not much of it, and that’s just what you need. My feet have always felt super comfy on long treks, as my feet are not forced to curl uncomfortably into some more intense concave. (This is extremely mild concave, the Trip is a pusher, not a freeride machine–and that’s the way I like it!) The width and length are both just enough–enough for comfort and security, and nothing extra weighing you down. The weight of the board itself is also nice and light–again, making for less work as you push. I weigh between 160-170lbs, and I really enjoy the flex of this deck. It’s a great little pocket of mild bounce that helps soften each push of a long journey. As I’ve heard Jeff say in the past, the flex will force your ankles to strengthen up, and your balance will improve as well–in my book, these are all good things.

    I’m sad to report that, after literally thousands of miles with this board, the neck snapped off when I rolled over a particularly large crack in the pavement. I’ve searched for a replacement deck, but so far, none has served me quite as well as my Trip has. I hope to either repair my original Trip with a bracket or else invest in a newer version of the Trip soon!

    Loving my 2018 Trip with the clear blue Speed Vents! I’m still pretty new to longboarding, but I’ve already somehow built a small quiver, and the Trip is definitely the favorite. This drop through and drop platform keeps it really low to the ground and making it very confidence inspiring.
    I’ve since upgraded the stock Paris bushings to RipTide Krank Fatcone boardside, and Canon roadside. This has made me love this setup even more, as it is now basically dialed in to how I like to ride. Looking forward to racking up the miles on this board!

  16. Omar

    I’ve had this board for a few months now. Before this I had the ember and it worked great but since it broke I wanted to try a new board. So far the trip has been holding up well but there is a crack on the tail/ nose. This is most likely due to the rough roads and sidewalks that I skate on. If I were to chose this or the ember I’d prefer the ember. Not to say this is a bad board but I prefer the nimbleness of the ember. I have it set up with Paris rkps with otang nipples and seismic 85 mm mango speed vents. It does the job for commuting and it does it well.

    The Trip is an awesome board and I can’t say enough good things about it in the short time I’ve had it. My main purpose for buying this deck was LDPush which it excels at because of the low ride height and enormous wheel size. It’s super easy to foot brake while pushing mongo or regular, something I haven’t had the confidence to do on any other board. I’ve already skated further than I ever had before on my old setup because you just don’t get tired while pushing this board, the wheels roll forever at speed, and there isn’t too much flex in the deck to slow you down like how Bamboo does. The deck’s size is perfect, you have a surprising amount of foot space for sliding, skogging, and tucking but is still very portable coming in at only a few inches longer than my mini-cruiser.

    For reference I am 5’10” and weigh 160 LBS and I went with the 9-ply based on Pantheon’s recommendation, I’m also using the stock setup (Paris RKP’s and 78.5 Mango Vents). This is great for pushing, cruising, carving, and slashing around. I was a little surprised that the 9-ply has some flex while cruising which is great for dampening road vibrations but with your feet spread out near the drops it stiffens up and is very stable at speed. I’m loving the concave because it is really mild which feels great underfoot. Slides feel almost effortless on this board too because you can lock your feet in by pushing them against the drops. There are a lot of paved bike paths with hills in my area so whenever I need to slow down I have no problem doing stand up or glove down slides. I was a little worried about this since the grip tape isn’t extra coarse and I didn’t want my feet moving around on the deck during slides and downhill but so far the drops have kept my feet locked in place. The grip tape works well for cruising too because you are able to move your feet around easily without tearing up the bottom of your shoes. To top it off, the artwork on the Trip is a nice design and visually pleasing. I would highly recommend this board for beginners because of how easy it is to ride, for commuters because it is nimble and portable, and for anyone trying to get into long distance pushing.

    This is a sweet board! I had been skating stiff downhill longboards and big double kicks. At 6’1″, 180, I went for the 8 ply and set it up with the 85mm Speed Vents and 150mm Paris RKP trucks. This is a nice, flexy board, super smooth. The Speed Vents are buttery. It does not feel very responsive to me, a result of the long wheel base, the double drop, and the fact that I am using medium-soft Venom double barrel bushings to avoid bite. With my hard carving style, bite was a problem with the Paris stock bushings. I followed Jeff’s advice and put two speed rings in the inside of the wheels, which helps. The plus side of this lack of responsiveness is that the board is super stable at speed, and easy to foot-brake. Usually going to foot brake over 15 or 20 mph is scary, but not with this board. The small standing platform takes some getting used to, and with size 13 shoes I need to really watch my foot placement or my feet will rub the wheels or even the ground. All that said, this board has been a revelation; it has a nice flow, is smooth, stable, easy to push and beautiful. It is a real work of craftsmanship.

    I’ve owned multiple iterations of the Trip, currently riding a 9 ply. Crescent drops put the flex in the right places and get your feet nice and close to your trucks for that good good control. I’ve used several other setups for LDP, but always come back to a Trip

  20. Shawn (verified owner)

    Just got the 9-ply 2019 Trip and it lives up to every good thing I’ve heard my friends say about it. The platform is low for pushing, but comfy for pumping, too. The look is excellent and the smaller size makes it super light and compact. It’s not crowded on the deck, which is impressive.

    I weigh 230 lbs and struggle to find decks that balance the right flex and strength. The Trip is perfect. It is stable and supportive, but gives me back that energy in the big pumps.

    I’m glad I decided to go for this deck at the beginning of summer. It’s going to make some good times.

  21. Scott (verified owner)

    I picked up the Trip on my search for the ultimate low deck pushing and cruising machine. I have several boards that I have tried with decent success, but still felt I was missing something.

    After some communication with Jeff (amazing dude) I picked up one of the Trip 8 ply deck complete with Paris 150 and 85mm speed vents.

    Oh man, THIS is what I have been after. The narrow trucks tucked perfectly into the board, the perfect ride height, my foot braking is effortless now. I have some smooth low grade hills in my area, and I was shocked how smooth it is rolling and turning, and then pushing… the flex is perfect. I would buy this board over and over. I may pick up another deck or 2, to have on hand as I would be lost without this deck. I can safely sell off my other boards (and make room for some other pantheon rides)

  22. Cory Brown (verified owner)

    I’ve owned both the Trip and the Ember. They are both fantastic boards. My opinion between the two, is that the Trip is the more beginner friendly of the two. You will appreciate the stability it offers over the more lively Ember. They both are so low down and amazing to push and carve for hours. While very similar in size, under foot, the Trip feels noticeably roomier, which is appreciated on longer distance rides. I feel more confident on the trip once fatigue sets in toward the end of a long ride simply due to the larger deck and inherent stability of RKP trucks. My vote is if you’re newer to skating or plan on doing some long distance, pick the Trip! I personally prefer the TKP feel of the Ember, but that’s just me, the Trip is what comes off the rack if I wanna go fast and long!
