In 1975 there were 2 significant events in my life... I made my first guitar and I also made my first skateboard. Skateboards practically didn’t exist in the UK back then. I grew up near US air bases, so getting hold of wheels and trucks from USAF kids wasn’t too hard... That first board I made was a labour of love in vertically laminated maple, poplar and walnut and I finally retired it when I bought a G&S pintail.

Fast forward to today and I am still making guitars, but for all my longboarding needs there is Vandem. For over 40 years, aside from playing guitar, this has been my sport, challenge, thrill and chill. Vandem are all about top quality advice and service

In a world where the masses still haven’t woken up to the appalling impact on our businesses of the uncaring tax-dodging retail behemoths, it is a joy to support kindred spirits with my custom. So many thanks to Adam and all the staff at Vandem.

About this product

Riptide's Krank formula has the highest rebound - and hence strongest "return to center" - out of all of the longboard bushings formulae we have in stock at Vandem. Poured here in the huge "Chubby" shape, this is a good bushing to generate a very bouncy, carvy ride, or to turn your trucks into super-stable downhill trucks. These bushings are about as restrictive as we sell, so if you are really looking to stop wheelbite, this is what we'd recommend.

There is a lot of urethane in these bushings - we recommned using the harder 93A for DH use or heavier riders only, whlist the softer 87A can be used to give a very high rebound truck setup.

Like all Riptide bushings, these will fit pretty much any longboard truck. They are sold as a pair, and come packaged with a sticker and a pair of huge XL Flat Washers. We only recommend running these "boardside," so one pack should be enough. Use them in combination with a pair of barrel bushings at the same hardness or softer durometer for the desired effect.
