Loaded Kanthaka & Kut-thaka Review: Shrinking The Freestyle City Slasher https://www.ridingboards.com/loaded-kanthaka-kutthaka-review/ https://www.ridingboards.com/loaded-kanthaka-kutthaka-review/#respond Fri, 16 Nov 2018 15:48:18 +0000 http://www.ridingboards.com/?p=1554 The Loaded Kanthaka, and its newer sibling the Kut-thaka, are impressive boards if you’re a street skater at heart.  A remarkable hybrid construction, comfortable concave, rockered profile, and deep wheel flares, make them as capable for street tricks and freestyle as for tech sliding, city slashing and commuting. The Kut-thaka is basically a shorter and nimbler […]

These are very different, even opposite […]
