Hi Guys,


I'm busy shopping around for my first board and I've narrowed it down to 3 decks. The Landyachtz Chinook, [/size]Landyachtz Evo[/color] or the [/size]Landyachtz Switchblade[/color]. I'll mainly be using the board for downhill and maybe some freeriding.


I'd like to at least stand on all 3 boards before I make a final decision, but I can't find any Landyachtz dealers in Joburg.


Anyone know where I can find somewhere to check these decks?


Shot a lot in advance

I think I might have found a solution to my dilemma.

Apparently x-ware have stock of the Deville boards and the Interstate looks like it may be the board for me. I'll pop in there and give it a feel.

the other thign you could do is to hook up with the guys when they go skating again and try skating a few different boards. longboarders are quite a helpful crowd. ;)

Got my Deville Interstate and I'm loving it!


Now I just need some harder bushings, the standard ones are a bit soft

Got some fat ant and I'm loving them! Shot for the recommendation guys.


Now to get some sliding wheels. My current wheels need a lot of speed and effort to break traction.


Thinking of the RAD release wheels.
