Been hunting around for some time finding the right board to get myself rolling again, and Vandem had just what I was after. I purchased the Lush Longboards Nomad. From the moment of purchase I was kept well informed throughout the stages of the board being prepped and then shipped out, which then arrived the next day too, which was great! Sensible prices, a nice range of quality brands to choose from and a user friendly website; will happily use Vandem next time I need a board or some kit

Loaded Kanthaka Wide 8.875" Deck

A variety of new profiles were considered for the redesign of the Ceviche. Prototypes were tested modifications to several aspects of the board were made. As shapes became more refined and more time was spent riding the boards and exploring a spectrum of skating styles and applications, Loaded came to a crossroad in the project. On one hand the board was meant to be the next step in the evolution of the Fish and Ceviche genealogy: a pumpable, agile, and trick capable city commuter with just the right amount of lively flex. On the other hand, the creation of a board that was stiffer and more aggressive to instil confidence for a wider variety of riding styles was also wanted. After some deliberation, the performance characteristics that Loaded were after, would be best divided amongst two separate boards. The first of these boards is the Kanthaka; the other will poke its head out from the shadows soon enough.

Features:
Rocker & Concave: To provide a locked in feel when riding between the trucks, as seen on the Bhangra and Chubby Unicorn. The Kanthaka has been designed with a gently rockered platform (enough to create a comfortable interface for sliding) that transitions smoothly into the kicks and an elliptical concave profile. The concave near the centre line of the board is quite shallow which ramps up gently near the rails.

Integrated Wheel Wells/Flares: The wheel well flares on the Kanthaka are a direct inspiration from the Chubby Unicorn. Designed to enhance clearance on both conventional and reverse kingpin trucks.

Nose & Tail Kicks: The kicktails on the Kanthaka are designed to provide excellent leverage for slides and manoeuvrability. They extend from the standing platform at a relatively shallow angle to generate a quick and give the Kanthaka a well balanced pop. The nose and tail share the same profile shape, but the nose is slightly steeper than the tail.

Flex & Damping: Solid for speed and crisp for pop, the Kanthaka’s bamboo and fibreglass construction is stiff without feeling overbuilt. The board has been designed with a very minute amount of longitudinal flex - just enough to soak up some road vibration and help keep the ride smooth.

Graphics: The Kanthaka graphic is a reproduction of an early Colonial quilt reflected in the glacier glasses of a Tibetan Sherpa as he dives into a high-elevation emerald lake.

GripTape: The griptape pattern on the Kanthaka provides functional coverage on the kicks, standing platform, and rails for reliable traction and control in all applications. There are subtle pickaxe cutouts designed to assist the griptape in conforming to the dished surface curvature in the pockets outside of the bolts, where the combination of wheel well flares and kicktail transitions generate enhanced lateral support for your feet.
