Despite its name, the construction and materials are what makes a longboard, not its length. Longboards come in many shapes and sizes and all are best when used for a specific purpose. Some boards are for dancing, some for flip-tricks, some for downhill, and some for traveling/cruising. Read more for our Landyachtz Switchblade from GlobeLongboards.com.
The Landyachtz Switchblade Review
The Landyachtz Switchblade is one of the best boards I have ever ridden. After testing it out I made it my new #1 ride replacing my old Sector 9. This is by far one of the best all-around boards available. It is awesome for cruising, sliding and tricks. And with the right setup it can be a wicked downhill board. For anyone looking for a board they can use for anything, pick the Switchblade. It has an awesome cut through setup that lets you bottom mount or top mount your trucks depending on your preference. The board has no flex at all like most Landyachtz downhill boards and it has some concave foot pockets to tuck in for slides and sharp turns.
You would think it from a cut through board, but the switchblade can actually have some bad wheel bite if you use the wrong trucks. It is specifically designed for grizzley trucks so make sure that is what you are getting. other than that, this board is flawless.
