The Sector 9 Highline Shine is a gorgeous, sun-drenched, surf-inspired “near pintail” shape – tail is a bit wider than a true pintail with a small kick – for cruising along the beach while enjoying the summer vibe.

The Highline Shine is a smooth riding pintail-style cruiser with a nice and stable 21.5″ wheelbase for carving and light commuting. It has a sturdy 7-ply maple construction and a very slight concave for maximum freedom of movement when cruising and carving.

The setup includes the renowned Gullwing Mission trucks which are TKP (street) trucks designed with cruising and carving in mind and proven for strength and durability. The quality 64mm 78A Nineballs wheels are big, soft, and white for fast roll and strong grip.

This 34.5″ longboard is part of the 2021 Swell Photo Collection and features photography by Phillip Thurston that feels like a painting of fluid motion.

As always with Sector 9, the artwork on the Highline stays true to the company’s roots in La Jolla, CA and its legendary surf culture.

The design on this deck is simply stunning, with a sunny yellow background on the bottom and amazing blue-toned surf wave graphics.

The top side of the deck features a gorgeous blue and yellow stripe matching the bottom colors.

The Nineball wheels also look amazing with a transparent turquoise color matching the ocean theme of the deck.
