A Legendary Tail: The Magneto Swallow Tail Electric Longboard
The Magneto Swallow Tail Electric Longboard From The Pintail Longboards Series
Magneto's new longboard series features a pintail with an upside-down "V" shape cutout that gives it the swallow tail look.
The swallowtail is a favorite shape of choice of many surfers for its lift and drive in the water. On a longboard on land, the pulled in tail can inspire tighter turns and harder carves.
Paired with The Revel kit to turn it into an electric longboard, you can surf the streets (or the campus quad) with more ease and speed—all while making it look easy.
The graphics stick to minimalistic chevrons while pointing the majority of the attention to the exposed rich dark stained maple veneer that is as pure as the roots of wave sliding themselves.
The topside also keeps it simple with clean lines, a small Magneto logo and a clear sand grip coating, because wouldn't it just be a shame to cover that gorgeous natural wood grain?

What Makes This Setup Unique?
This is not your average pintail longboard, and not your average swallowtail either. The fishtail shape is more typically found on shorter boards. On a longer board, this is a fun crossover between a laid-back and performance feel.
Not to mention, this setup is plenty friendly as an electric longboard for beginners. It is on the stiff side, with a subtle progressive concave that will feel steady yet responsive under your feet.
Playing off the white graphics on the top, you could slap a set of white wheels on this build to make it even cleaner. Or, use a set of Cloudwheels Discovery 120mm/105mm Urban All Terrain Wheels for extra tread when cutting across the grass or rolling on sandy boardwalks.
Go on and let your inner SoCal style shine.
