Landyachtz Longboards from Vancouver, British Columbia has been around since 1997 and is widely known as one of the best brands for longboard decks, complete longboards and products such as wheels, griptape and gloves. The quality of the Landyachtz longboards can be explained by the fact that almost all of their employees are skaters themselves and always provide new input for the further development of the brand. What began as a project for two skateboard-enthusiastic Canadians became an international sensation for high-quality longboards. You can utilise this concentrated know-how in the skatedeluxe Online Shop and put together your very own Landyachtz board.
One Board One Tree - Environmentally-conscious mentality and longboarding
Landyachtz proves that a company in the skateboard business can step up and take on further responsibility with its very own environmental protection program. The goal of the "One Board One Tree" project is to plant a tree for every board sold in order to demonstrate the connectedness of skateboarding & longboarding with the environment. To this end, the Canadians have teamed up with three other organisations, which not only plant trees worldwide but also manage projects that enable entire communities to provide training for sustainable forestry and agriculture.
So with your purchase, you’re not only backing a very nice company, but also supporting environmental protection and self-help. With a single tree, Landyachtz produces about sixty skateboards for which a new tree is planted. Thus, with the use of one tree, sixty new trees are produced.
From Evo to today - Landyachtz technology
For many years, the Landyachtz brand was mainly associated with downhill longboarding and still is today. The Landyachtz Evo was one of the first boards especially made and optimised for this purpose and was way ahead of its time. Internationally, no other board has been used in winning as many championships and races as the Evo. Since Landyachtz does not simply sit on its throne of victory, the development of new technologies, shapes and materials continues to grow.
Trial and error is the method of product development that produces great results. Of course, this only works if you have a truly ambitious team. Nowadays Landyachtz not only produces the classic downhill boards that can be used to conquer the extreme mountains of British Columbia but also longboards for all the disciplines of the sport with innovative materials and features. Innovations such as gas pedals, various forms of concave or even boards, in which the rear axle doesn’t turn at all for optimum speed control, are Landyachtz's main pillars. These developments are just the beginning.
All Longboard Parts Under One Roof
The longboard wheels brand Hawgs and truck brand Bear Trucks are also part of Landyachtz and have been inspiring skateboarders around the world since their release. The reason is simple: these Canadians don’t mess around when it comes to wheels and trucks and they rely on only the highest quality.
The lineup ranges from RKP cast trucks like the Bear 852 for cruising, carving and freeriding to Polar Bear trucks for street and bowl or the Bear Kodiak trucks for higher demands and race-oriented riding. The same goes for wheels: you can get Hawgs Wheels at skatedeluxe in various shapes, degrees of hardness and urethane blends for every discipline.
Landyachtz Accessories for the highest demands
In addition to the decks with which Landyachtz became famous, you can also equip yourself with various other products from the brand and be sure that you’re getting the highest quality. In times when slide gloves were almost exclusively made by Landyachtz themselves, these handguards were the dream of every longboarder and even today, the progress doesn’t stop. New materials, better adapted to freeriding, tech sliding and downhill, and the unusual designs make each collection a new highlight. You can always look forward to new Landyachtz products from skatedeluxe, as we’re just as excited to present them to you. Whether you're looking for a pure-bred racing board or a compact cruiser for campus, you'll be sure to find what you're looking for in the Landyachtz Brand Shop here at skatedeluxe.
