Commuter - Commuter boards cover a wide range. Whether you're cruising to the store on a beverage run or crossing from suburbs to downtown and back on the daily, commuting boards are made to make your life a litter easier and a lot more fun.
Shorter boards in this category make up the cruising department. Some have functional kicktails, but they're still made to fit large wheels so you won't get hung up on any rocks. Some are even small enough they can fit in lockers or under a work desk.
Longer boards are made for distance skaters. With features like rocker, flex, and anything to lower your center of gravity, commuting boards make skating feel like you have your own cloud underfoot. These boards are really great for beginners and experienced riders alike.
Never make the boring mistake of walking again, get your commute on.
Carving & Pintail - Deep carves, boardwalk cruising, and mellow hills are calling you. This is the traditional Californian longboard and is still relevant today. You'll find the longest wheelbases in this category meant for big turns and a large surface area for dancing.
Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity, giving you a more responsive and stable ride. Trucks are mounted through the board and truck bases will sit either flush or slightly above the deck surface. Great for high speed assaults or even cruising around town to your local watering hole.
Note: If assembling yourself, you'll first need to remove your longboard truck hanger from its base by unscrewing the kingpin. Once separated, reassemble the trucks through the mounting area (sandwiching the board between the hanger/base of the truck), then tighten the kingpin nuts and you're ready to roll.
Rocker - The rocker profile can be seen from the side and is identified as a slight smile. Rocker decks are great for both downhill and freeride. You'll feel snug and secure on a rocker profile and this is especially useful for freeride beginners.
Directional - Directional boards might have concave towards the front, maybe the tail is tapered, it could be shaped to have a fatter nose than tail, and it probably feels awkward if you hop on backwards. However, when you want to pump a board, or you want to have something that sets you up for the fastest line, directional boards are great. Whether you are looking for a really responsive directional board for carving and cruising or a precision downhill deck, a directional board could be in your future.
Cutouts - With big wheels you need lots of room to carve and dig into turns, cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite while cutouts for your trucks appear on drop through decks so you can ride closer to the ground.
5-Ply Bamboo - Bamboo construction gives the board a nice bounce to it.
One Board One Tree - To give back to the environment, for every skateboard sold, Landyachtz will plant a tree. One tree produces at least 60 boards. So one tree will turn into at least 60 new trees planted. When you buy a Landyachtz deck, know that you are making a difference and improving the environment for future generations to enjoy.
Medium W Concave - This variable concave provides a medium rise at the platform edges to keep your feet locked-in without allowing wheel bite when you're cutting through corners.
Suggested Hardware for Risers - Landyachtz decks are thicker than traditional decks, so longer screws are needed when adding risers to your complete. When building a custom Landyachtz complete through Skateboard Builder, use the following Risers and Hardware guide to ensure your deck mounts up correctly:
No Riser = 1 1/4" Hardware
1/8" Risers = 1 1/2" Hardware
1/2" Risers = 2" Hardware
Most Angled Risers = 2" Hardware
