The Restless BigBoy... the original bowl concave in the flesh! This longboard started with the idea to merge the concave and the drop to create a pocket that would lock your feet in while remaining very comfortable. So we made a deep concave, the deepest we had made at the time (that was before the Furabu), added the drop and let the 9 plys of Hard Canadian Maple bend the way it wanted. It created the famous bowl concave. We then cut-out a drop-through hole to lower the center of gravity for easier slides, but also added a flush-mount so that the board wouldn't be so low as to hit curbs and such. Finally we cut the shape that gave the board its name, with as much clearance for the wheels as anybody's going to need. The artwork on the BigBoy has changed quite a few times over the year. This year both graphics are by Peter Ricq. Take a close look at the 3D graphic... with 3D glasses! Yes, it is 3D and it comes with Restless-branded stylized plastic 3D glasses for you to enjoy the effect.

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.
