On the advice of one of the Vandem staff, I picked a Freebyrd as a starter board.
I was initially toying with the idea of buying one of the £50 boards you see on ebay to get me going, but I am so glad that I saved the extra an got this board.
The board shipped out quickly, and arrived carefully packaged, with a nice note for me in the box which was a lovely personal touch. Some great stickers in the box too!
Out of the box everything was all set up and ready to ride, on top of this, the board itself is gorgeous to look at. Rolls smoothly across the tarmac, and it's made my entry to longboarding an enjoyable one.
The Loaded Bhangra is one of the longboard boards we have in the shop right now at 48.5"! It's a dedicated "longboard dancer" deck, built for flowing lines on flat ground. Featuring a Cork/Bamboo/Bio-Resin layup, it's light and tough enough for throwing around.
This deck has a very mellow rocker concave, a slightly directional shape, and mellow nose and tail to give you just enough features to find your feet on the deck. Die-cut multi-grade grip tape is designed specially for dancing and flatland moves. Small wheel wells finish the package off - although we would probably set this board up with smaller (65mm) wheels anyway to keep it low, light and slidey.
Rather than offer these as completes with stock components, we have left them available as deck only for you to pick and choose your setup. Give us a call or shoot us an email if you want help building one of these into a complete, and we'll do our best to help you out.
