DARK-ARTS-BOARD
DARKARTS-COLLAB
Introducing the Dark Arts X AIPA Collab!

We chose to focus on the version of the Sting Made for Mark Richards in 1976. This shape is modeled after Mark Richard's 6’8”x21-1/2”x3-1/4”. MR’s Flame Sting was made with a step bottom which removes ¼” from the bottom contour from behind the Sting (wings) to the tail. Ben wanted to create air cavitation and subsequent lift which meant more speed. This would be the first known attempt to facilitate lift like our modern concaves now do for us. AIPA added a slight amount of curve to the tail and moved the midpoint back, closer to center, to improve performance and the remainder of the board remains true to the original. The ’76 STING combined with Dark Arts Tech is bound to be a modern classic!
