Why we offer custom bushings

The most important part of skateboarding is being able to turn!

Without turning you can't skate anywhere, or learn a single trick.

It's the basis of all forms of skateboarding.

And without the correct bushings for your weight, you won't be able to do it!

That's why at Vandem, we personalise every board that goes out the door.

This way your board will come set up perfectly for you, straight out of the box.

You won't find this service anywhere else!

Just refer to the table below and make your choice as you add to cart:
