Lush Longboards Mako Pintail
Iconic UK longboard brand Lush have finally got back in the pintail game!
The Mako is a refined 44" pintail shape, fuller and longer than most others we have in the shop.
By rounding off the nose and tail, Lush have managed to create a shape that no only looks good (which is, let's face it, the whole point of a pintail!), but it's also a lot more functional than most other pintails out there.
A mellow flex, long wheelbase, wheel wells, a die-cut griptape job, and a simple graphic on a super-classy woodgrain finish make the Mako the perfect choice if you want a pintail longboard.
The Elite Complete is a premium cruising/carving setup, built with Sabre "Standard" 180mm longboard trucks, Sabre Trucks Built-In Race Bearings and "Cultron" high speed grip wheels from Cult Wheels. This is seriously good value - the Sabre's are far superior to other trucks on completes at this price point, and the Cults are race-proven - some of the fastest rolling and grippiest wheels on the market. The Elite setup also comes with router-cut wheel wells to fit wheels up to 80mm without fear of wheelbite.
The Pro Complete is also built with Sabre "Standard" 180mm longboard trucks and Cult Emperor Wheels. Sabre Hardware and Vandem Value ABEC5 bearings finish it off. This is an awesome setup for the price, with decent trucks that turn really well and fast aftermarket wheels.

Lush Longboards Mako Pintail Reviews
So then, after a LONG hiatus from boarding, I dug out my old Lush Kilima from the back of the van - she was in a state - bearings were seized, wheels were crusty & dry but I had the urge to get back on. Mission - get some advice & buy some replacement parts. After trawling the net I discovered Vandem - I`m glad I did!! They helped me through the replacement parts & I was so chuffed with the service & knowledge that I also decided to treat myself to the Mako Elite Build as a second board. (And actually a cruiser as well for a third board) (+ other bits & pieces including protection cos it`s been a long time & I know I`ll be horizontal at some stage) What else can say - These guys know their stuff - they give spot-on advice, the Lush Mako is stunning - Everything arrived on time, very well packaged, (Plastic-free, which I like a lot!!) communication was fantastic either by email or phone and I`m more than delighted. The extra freebies like stickers & bushing kits (Over a certain order value) were also a welcome touch. I`m now back riding with an awesome setup and a massive smile on my fat face. Money well spent in my opinion. My advice... Don't buy from, some random internet seller - speak to Adam & Team @ Vandem, budget for a decent board, and buy it from here... you will not be disappointed - I will be back for sure (Already got my eye on board #4) Summary? - 10/10 & 110% Cheers guys.
Great shopping experience! My longboard came very well packed and protected. There was a nice hand written note with it which makes it all the more special! Great presence on social media too. Highly recommended!
I only just bought the Lush Minnow as my first longboard, but unfortunately my girlfriend decided she wanted to start learning, so I had to get another board. I reluctantly gave her the Minnow, as that is an amazing board, and got myself the Mako. I was not disappointed! The Mako is so good to skate and really well made. Perfect for cruising around on even on less than ideal paths. Besides the Minnow which is a compact, this was my first full sized pintail and I would highly recommend it, even to beginners. It’s also surprisingly light for its size. To summarise: Minnow - Great. Mako - Great.
First I bought an Arbor Axis Flagship that I really like, but the pintail suits me better on turns. Being able to overlap the the board on both sides suits my style when turning. At 56, 43 years since my first board and 42 years since I last rode a board, this Lush board has increased my confidence.
You guys were so friendly on the phone and thank you for all the advice. I ordered on a Friday afternoon and received my board the next day! I was so chuffed and excited. Thank you!!!
