For our testing of Riviera Skateboards’ Zia Stick we took it down to our neighborhood spillway right on the beach.
The Zia Stick is a 7-ply, maple double kick designed by Kody Noble. This board features an adjustable wheelbase of 18″ and 19″ inches, mellow concave, and a tapering tail and diamond tip nose.
The ample wheelbase of this board gives it a super surfy and cruise-y vibe while still retaining pop and maneuverability. The squared, yet tapered tail and nose provides for added stability while grinding and negotiating slides.
The Zia Stick is an all around shredder done well. That said it might be cool to see it offered in a bit lighter construction and with a steeper concave throughout.
Kody Noble’s Zia Stick is a fun double kick skate deck for the skater in search of a little more overall length than a traditional street deck. If you’re a skater who likes a surfy ride and still wants to hit ditches, streets, and bowls then this board is a quality option for your shredding needs.
