I've been on my new board (Lush Chopper) every day since I got it From Vandem and I'm loving it. I come from straight cruising longboard (Vanguard Loaded) land but I wanted to get something to do bowls etc with my skate mates. I've not done much of that yet, but the agility of the board makes me feel pretty confident there - it feels more like a skateboard, turns and pops in a way I couldn't get either of my longboards to (other board is a Lush machine 80's). But I was surprised by how much fun it was downhill and on the London commute - it's not so good on rough terrain, but with the set up I got (Indy 169 + Orange orangutan fat free's) it sticks to the road and the improved turning circle really helps keep out of trouble.
Super fun! And Adam was very helpful and did a great job setting the board up for me - thanks!
The Freebyrd is the most affordable board in the Lush lineup. Perfectly suited to beginners, or as an introduction to longboarding for those from a surfing or snowboarding background, the drop through truck mounting makes an easy slide and a stable ride. Lush Acid Drops and RKP trucks with specially selected bushings give a fast roll speed and a nice "leany" surfy turn. A great place to start your longboard journey!
The Pro Complete is built with Sabre "Standard" 180mm longboard trucks, Sabre ABEC7 Bearings and Cult Wheels Classic 70mm's. This is probably the best value board we sell in our whole shop, with decent trucks that turn really well, fast wheels and solid bearings.
The Standard Complete comes set up with our "Standard" Longboard Setup Kit: Lush Acid Drop 63mm 78A Wheels, Lush 180mm RKP Trucks, ABEC 5 Bearings, and Sabre Hardware.
All completes are gripped with Vandem Regular Griptape - we stay away from Coarse tape on this board to make footwork a bit easier.
