Commuter - Longboards for general cruising, ideal for experienced skaters and beginners alike. Never make the boring mistake of walking again!
Carving - Deep carves, boardwalk cruising and mellow hills are calling you. You'll find the longest wheelbases in this category meant for big turns and big fun.
Freestyle - Freestyle is all about expression so you'll see a wide variety of flex, shape and length in this category. If you have longboard dancing and flat-ground trick goals, you're on the right page.
Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity giving you a more responsive and stable ride.
Camber - Camber gives you a charged feeling underfoot and better leverage for turns. They can feel a bit more like a spring at first but any rider will appreciate how this makes the board responsive.
Symmetrical - If you ever think you want to ride your board backwards (freeride/freestyle) then a symmetrical longboard shape will help you with the learning curve. Other than that, it's all preference.
Double Kicks - With a kicktail at the nose and tail of the board, ollies and flip tricks will become part of your arsenal. Double kicks are most often found on freestyle boards, but can add versatility to any skateboard.
Cutouts - Cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite.
Mild Concave - Most longboards have a mild concave to give your feet natural curves to lock into. Choosing the right concave can be tough because it's all personal preference but mild concave is always a good place to start.
Dervish Sama Construction - Epoxy and Tri-axial fiberglass sandwich a vert-lam bamboo core pressed into concave and convex cambers for liveliness, responsiveness and high energy potential. The DropThru cutouts are CNC milled for precision.
Dervish Sama Flex 1 (170-250+ lbs) - The stiffest flex has the most energy potential and more stability at higher speeds but will not be as forgiving and lively when cruising. The Flex 1 is considerably stiffer and is appropriate for heavier riders and hard-pounding thrashers alike.
Dervish Sama Flex 2 (100-185+ lbs) - A medium flex pattern to give you more control and tighter turns at slower speeds and make it easier to slide, but still tends to lose stability slightly at higher speeds.
Dervish Sama Flex 3 (75-150+ lbs) - Keep in mind that a softer flex pattern will give you more control and tighter turns at slower speeds and make it easier to slide, but tends to lose stability slightly at higher speeds.
Stiffer flex means more energy potential, more stability at higher speeds, and makes air moves easier, but will not be as forgiving and lively when cruising.
Custom Pre-Grip - This board comes pre-gripped from Loaded with an aggressive black griptape designed to provide maximum coverage while allowing the board to flex naturally, providing enhanced traction and control for sliding and pumping, as well as creating a serious "lock-in" on the nose and tail.
