Our View:
After joining Rayne on the Vandal for 2012, Switzer's back with his very own signature downhill longboard.
Packing a subtle but sweet kick in the tail, this board is more versatile than the Vandal if you like to get up & down curbs or fly off ramps hands free.
The concave is pretty interesting too, providing a pocket to lock into between 2 flares at each standing point.
Add to this Rayne's sweet ass fatcore tech, it's looking pretty mint for the Fortune.

From Rayne:
Patrick Switzer is well known for being one of the fastest men downhill and one hell of a nice guy! The 2011 World Cup Series Champion joined Rayne in 2012 looking for a family to ride with and some Rayne innovation under his feet. Riding the Rayne Vandal in 2012, Patrick worked with Rayne designer Graham Buksa to transform the elegantly basic Vandal into his new Signature Fortune for 2013.

The Fortune is a directional, top mounted speed board like no other. Combining a bit of slalom, pool and downhill, the Fortune gets radial concave, a small spoon tail and an upturned nose added to the directional Vandal shape so Patrick can ollie, manual and generally ride one board for whatever goofing he gets up to. Additionally, the Vandal 3D wheel wells have been turned into what we call 4D Cups. - if you’ve watched Patrick creating 3D concave with Vicious Grip, you’ll know where it all came from. These all-new supportive waves grab your feet and hold them in place so they’re not flopping around while you motor your boat down hill. Finally the new Fortune takes on the Fat Bottom construction we released with the 2012 Avenger, keeping the board stiff and strong, but dropping excess weight and reducing exposed wood by making CNC’ed wheel wells obsolete.

The 4D Cups on this board works like this:

1: Integrated Wheelwells: subtle, pressed in curves in the front and rear open up the new radial concave to naturally allow for more diverse wheel options, while allowing the rider to find their feet without looking and prevent wheelbite without cutting into the deck.

2: Integrated Foot Locks: molded into the Wheelwells, the three dimensional waves create natural ridges to dig your foot into for tucking, pushing out drifts and slides and generaly keeping your eyes and mind on the road ahead and not the board beneath you.
