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 Legend has come a long way since it's inception. The deck is laid up using Lush X-Flex construction, a composite of six layers of Canadian maple, two layers of bi-axial fibreglass, and soaked through with waterproof epoxy to hold the whole thing together. The resulting deck is wonderfully light and strong with and extremely comfortable and satisfying flex.
The shape is basically a giant symmetrical freeride deck, narrowed to mellow out the concave and with a small nose and tail. Wheel wells minimise wheelbite and allow you to keep your setup nice and low. This deck is spot on for all the flips, spins, ollies and grabs that dancing requires - Peter Pans and Tiger Claws have never been so easy.
