The Restless AstroHican is our answer to the growing demand of old-school hard wheel slide decks. It was designed by our most old-schooler rider, Marc Séguin. You'll rarely see so much concave on a short double-kick deck like that. The concave is high and sharp at the edge and the transition from the concave to the kicks is short to create a hook for your feet at each end. The kicks are steep and large for maximum space. It is also made from 7 plys Hard Canadian Maple for a nice pop. We finished the shape with deep wheel-wells to prevent wheel-bite even with larger wheels. All-in-all it excels at what it was made for; hard wheel slides. The graphic was created by Marc's friend, Olivier Lefebvre, who was nice enough to give us the artwork in exchange for a $1 donation per deck sold to a charity of his choice.

It all began on a legendary night in the spring of 2000. The idea started with a jigsaw, an old snowboard, a beat up set of wheels and a rusty pair of trucks. The board that was created that night would profoundly change our lives forever… Restless boards was born.
Since then, many things have changed, but one thing has remained a constant, a passion for the sport of longboarding. This passion runs all the way from the founders, through our team of riders, and can be seen on all our boards. Today, fuelled by this passion, Restless has proudly established itself as one the world’s elite longboard brands.
At Restless boards, we pride ourselves in creating decks that allow all riders to live a one of a kind experience, whether they are looking for a smooth city cruise or an adrenaline driven speed rush. To achieve this objective we have put an emphasis on quality, performance and aesthetics of our products.
Promoting local materials, riders, artists and striving to be environmentally friendly have been the guidelines throughout our creative process. Our boards are made with 100% hard Canadian Maple and entirely designed and manufactured in North America.
Our boards are designed through extensive testing on and off the race track. Our riders and engineers work together to improve and innovate in a search to continuously push the limits of our sport.
We view our boards as a rolling canvas. Compromise is never an option when it comes to the quality of our graphics. Hence, all our designs are done through various artist collaborations. Setting a new standard for the industry.
