Sector 9 Rocker Complete 35.5 Longboard Skateboard.
Ready to rock!
The Sector 9 Rocker features a half-inch of rocker! The Continuous Rocker sets your feet in a more natural lean rather than standing on a flat board. You can think of it as concave going from the nose to the tail, then adding on to the concave in the board, you can a full lock in feel from front to back as well as side to side. This ensures that you don’t slip off of your board heading down a steep mountain run at 50pmh.
To compensate for the rocker, it comes with recessed truck mounting, letting you ride the true angle of your trucks as well as making the board lower to the ground and much more stable. The board's construction is four layers of tri-axel fiberglass sandwiching 3 plies of maple letting this board be both speed stiff and extremely light. Add in the wheel wells and this board is ready for bigger wheels for your super-fast downhill runs, or trucks that are loose without any kind of wheelbite.
The top of the Sector 9 Rocker comes with Sector 9's high grit grip tape to get you locked and loaded and ready to ride.

The story of the Sector 9 nineball starts in a La Jolla backyard in 1993. At the time, the founder's house consisted of a bunch of good friends, a halfpipe, pool table, ping pong table and shaping room all just across the street from some nice smooth hills down to the reefs. Being that the house had all these fine features, it became quite the hangout spot. A friend from Hawaii who used to call people “nineballs” all the time in a friendly razzing sort of way, called up on the phone one day to see what was going on at the house. Of course everyone was “studying” so he got the answering machine and said “Whats going on over there at Sector 9?” which to everyone meant a house full of nineballs. At the same time one of the house favorite hill cruisers, a snowboard-turned-skateboard, was stolen from Northbird in La Jolla and a couple replacement boards were almost finished and just needed the finishing touches of a logo. The message on the machine was heard and the name not only had a nice ring to it but seemed fitting as well so it stuck. The interest had been apparent from everyone who saw these skaters by so they started making skateboards in the backyard. Lots of learning and a couple evictions later Sector 9 was forced to move into its first warehouse in what would become the Sector 9 skateboard factory.
