The Barge is elegant in it's simplicity and functionality as a downhill board. A 9-ply maple construction, rocker drop pocket, uniform riding platform, and just enough tail pop to make it a freeride dream. Riders had been custom shaping and asking for bricks like this when they came to visit the woodshop, so we figured it was warranted to add one to the line. It is great as a do-anything board, and though the features are few, they really shine in their own regard as you push the limits of downhill, freeride, or red curb sessions.

Load em' up and ship em' out! The Sector 9 Downhill Division piled 15 guys into an RV and hit the road towards Arizona in search of deserted mountain roads. The landscape was perfect and the pack riding was legendary. Enjoy part 1 of the Downhill Division's 4-wheeled attack on Arizona!
Mr. Tibs Parise drops in for a quick line in the Breadbowl. Can you tell he skates this thing a lot?
Introducing the Sector 9 Bomber Suit, our first leather suit designed specifically for downhill skateboarding! Watch the Downhill Division take the new suits for some high speed test runs.
"Designed specifically for downhill skateboarding. Made of 100% high quality cow leather, we added strategically placed kevlar, lycra, and an accordion panel to allow for comfort and flex. The knees have a medium density foam pad and removable velcro leather patches that will allow you to add Sector 9 Replacement Caps. The inner suit consists of nylon and polyester wicking mesh, with an added spine protector pouch and inner chest pocket. Includes a hanger and carry sack. Available in S, M, L, and XL."
Thanks for joining us on Go Skateboarding Day 2015 for the 10th Annual Poker Run and Dodgeball Tournament! This year GSD fell on Father's Day so were feeling extra lucky to spend it with a bunch of dads and their kids. More fun next year!
