I ordered an Arbor Bamboo drop through - its a lovely thing - almost too pretty to skate.
It arrived on time, in perfect condition in a really protective box, with freebie stickers, extra bushings & a nice note from Danielle included. They look like they're a shop that really promotes & supports skating too, so it's all good.
Loaded Tarab II Dancing Deck
"Let the rhythm move you" with the brand new and long-awaited Loaded Tarab II!
Loaded have been at the forefront of longboard dancing since 2008 and a new deck release is always something exciting. The Tarab II is no exception!
At 47" long this is a real dancer, but thanks to the lightweight bamboo and basalt construction, it's not too bulky to get up into the air for your snappier, flippier freestyle shenanigans. The wheelbase has been shortened up since the original Tarab which helps further - the tails are a little bigger and a lot more functional!
Are you a lighter rider, or like it really flexy? The Flex 2 is the one for you - with a thinner bamboo topsheet and livelier pop. If you want a bit more stability and stiffness, the Flex 1 is your option.
A descendent of the orginal Loaded Dancer, this is a board that sits as close to the heart of longboard dancing as it gets, and yet is technically on another level to those first boards. Now featuring rocker to keep you locked into your steps and slides, as well as reinforced nose and tail, and pre-milled wheelwells to offer the benefits of a full composite bottom sheet. Not to mention that it's glued together with some of the more eco-friendly resin available in the world today.
They've really thought about this one - in fact, they've been thinking about it for some time now! There's only one to see what the hype is about...
From Loaded themselves:
"The Tarab II deepens our roots and seeks to advance modern longboard dancing through thoughtful design and material evolution. Ideal for riders who want a versatile and well-rounded platform for surfy boardwalking lines, smooth freestyle trickery, and everything in between. Move around. Find your flow.
Functional Design: Rocker, concave, symmetrical shape, mellow kicktails, grab rails, and purposeful griptape combine to form an elegantly ergonomic platform for flowy footwork and the most frenetic freestyle dancing. Wheel wells are pre-milled into the core prior to pressing, allowing for increased wheel clearance while maintaining the strength and finish benefits of full composite construction.
Light, Damp and Durable: Bamboo and basalt construction keeps the Tarab II lightweight, lively, and durable. We relocated the vibration-damping cork to the bottom layer and added a bamboo top veneer for a slicker surface for pirouettes and other dancing moves. We added another layer of basalt reinforcement in the nose and tail for significantly improved wear resistance and even more pop. Stronger and better than ever.
Versatile Variations: Available in two distinct flexes. Flex 1 features a thicker bamboo top veneer for added stiffness and damping. Flex 2 is slightly lighter and noticeably more lively. Both flexes feature two updated wheelbase options to accommodate a variety of riding preferences (the new outer setting is equivalent to the previous inner setting on the original Tarab).
Super Sap: Bio-based epoxy by Entropy Resins. Uses bio-based materials from industrial waste streams such as tree sap to replace petroleum content and reduce the carbon footprint of the epoxy from manufacturing. We've worked closely with Entropy to enhance every major performance characteristic of the resin. Better for the planet, even more fun.
Graphics: We created the original Tarab’s graphics in collaboration with artist Will Scobie to convey the fluidity of longboard dancing and the euphoric experience defined in its namesake. Loaded ambassador and Dock Session founder Lotfi Lamaali was heavily involved in the design and development of both iterations of the Tarab. For the Tarab II, we built upon the original graphic while further exploring the influence of Lotfi’s Moroccan cultural background."

I bought my first board from these folks, at 46 years old nearly a year ago.
The service was first class. I found other places to be a tad patronising truth be told, maybe because of my age, maybe because of my ability or both.
Not here. They made me feel super...
