Cody is about to start riding the 2015 Sacramento Pro after he recently cracked his 2014 Sac Pro after attempting the waterfall in St. George, Utah (see photos below). Follow this link to checkout the 2015 Sac Pro and find out how to snag one of your own before they are all gone. 

About the 2015 Sac Pro: Straight out of Sacramento’s flatland furnace comes the hell-ridden 2015 Sac Pro. This year’s model embodies the essence of gnar through an exceptional artistic aesthetic. Designed by Beau Thomas, one of the most talented artists from within the flatland community, the board’s full-frame base graphic captures the murderous potential that can only be found when riding the Sac-Pro. Structurally, this year’s Sac Pro incorporates the profile and flex pattern of the original Sac Pro designed by team rider Adam Balaam. Like its predecessor, the 2015 version unveils itself as the leader in responsive maneuvers and technical tricks for advanced to professional riders. A wider base provides more surface area for faster skimming, while shorter tip to tail length reduces swing weight making rotations much faster. Side cuts along the tail and nose provide hydrodynamic planes allowing the board to snap off of the water and into effortless shuvs.
