Rayne Longboards and Reese Boyko – Prototyping the Rayne Forge

Canada: We recently gave Rayne rider Reese Boyko a prototype of our newest board in the line to put it through its paces and make sure it’s up to the challenge of daily urban adventuring. Reese can shred anything with 4 wheels and 2 trucks, so we put this new fun stick under his feet to see where he took it.


Prototyping is all about testing our ideas to see if they are as smart under our feet as they are in our heads; part cruisy flowy board, part urban assault vehicle, the Forge is a party on wheels. A directional shape with twin double kicks and just the right amount of flex and rebound, it’s as versatile as it is fun. Whether you’re looking to hop, pop, dance, or slide, the Forge delivers with style.

We made the new Forge a little shorter than the original from back in the day for increased mobility, and we extended the cuts to allow for more wheel options. The Forge easily accommodates up to 70mm wheels (or bigger depending on the setup), but Reese was rolling on our new 64mm Envy wheels while testing.
