KOTA Technology

Prepare for Flight


It’s About Energy! 

Ride the perfect combination of camber and concave for agile carving. Engineered so you ride with performance, comfort and control. That’s the KOTA edge!

CAMBER brings your ride to life! The arc of the board tip to tail puts compression and tension into the deck’s core, packing your ride with energy and responsiveness. It’s the mechanism that allows you to control your ride!

CONCAVE adds turning response and confidence! We add a lateral curve to your board that directs energy to the deck’s edge, helping the board stick to your feet. The Concave surface on top of your KOTA longboard gives you added turning performance while you carve!

Board Construction

Only the best Hard Rock Maple becomes a KOTA longboard. We specify American Hard Rock Maple from Wisconsin for its strength, durability and beauty. Each veneer is individually inspected. If it makes the grade it becomes a KOTA deck.

We use Hard Rock Maple because it has the right lignin content, fiber density and fiber strength to hold our cambered shape and recover that shape after multiple cycles. Rated at a Janka Hardness of 1,450 pounds-force, that’s nearly twice as much as other maple varieties. No other wood will do for KOTA longboards.  Simply put, Hard Rock Maple is TOUGH!

Design & Style

Each and every KOTA longboard is handcrafted with a focus on quality and detail. Utilizing our AIM-54 stains, we’re able to highlight the extraordinary beauty of the Maplewood grain making every KOTA board unique.

Every KOTA board features our exclusive KOTA metal medallion imbedded into its toe. Designed in the genre of vintage bicycle head-badges, the KOTA medallion adds something special to your ride. It shows everyone around you that you’re a part of the KOTA family.

Whether you ride a KOTA Classic edition or Military Personalized design, your KOTA longboard is uniquely YOU.


From day one we’ve not been content with the status quo. That’s why we developed KOTAgrip, the first truly clear, non-porous, durable grip finish.

KOTAgrip gives you confidence in your command of the board even riding in the rain. And because KOTAgrip has no pores, it is easily cleaned with a wet cloth.

You’ll only find KOTAgrip on a KOTA longboard.
