What if you could fit even more nose and tail onto the Himmelreich? It would become a fine dancer. It also pops and has a great geometry to ollie. Too long? Our team rider Joao Martins is 1.70m tall and comfortably ollies the Schinken over every curb, as well as making bomb drops that the rest of us wouldn’t dare consider.
It may not be obvious that you can pop such ollies on this board, but it works. Such a big nose might also appear out of place whilst bombing hills…but it works. Clearly, a soft spot for a long board goes along with the Schinken. And if you have it, here you have an exceedingly versatile tool.
Could it offer a little more? Yes, more stiffness. No problem, in the Hotzi hardcore version we replace the fiberglass with carbon. Or more rebound? How about a Hotzi Hardcore Flex II? Pleasantly flexy, but with a snappier rebound. Or less weight? Take the hollow WNT core.
