Trade Show Time

Lush Longboards

24Jan

We’re in the middle of a pretty hectic week of travelling here at Lush HQ… showing off all our 2012 boards at Bright Trade Show in Berlin last weekend, and getting ready for ISPO in Munich next weekend. And a weekend of snowboarding after that :-)

If you’re coming to ISPO, all our stuff is on the Vandem-MFG stand, A2/122. See you there for a beer!

We’ll have a full run down of events after the show… in the meantime, you can keep up to date with happenings on the Vandem-MFG Twitter account.

Duder

13Jan

We have another new board in the 2012 lineup to show off… the Duder is our stab at a mid-length cruiser.

Simple, clean, sexy. It’s slightly rockered for super nice board feel, which also has the effect of lifting the tail a little.

It’s not too long – 36.35″ – so you can carry it on the tube or sling it under your desk – but it’s still long enough to be a true “longboard” and way more skateable than these tiny plastic things that are all the rage right now…

If you’re after a longboard for nipping to the pub or down the shops on, here’s one that’s actually had some thought put into it.

While this maybe isn’t what you want for blasting your local hill or chucking giant standies, we think you will be hard pushed to find a cruiser that skates better than this. Don and Giovanni Approved!

Vanstone

We went to darkest Devon last night to see Mr Vanstone in his natural environment… making ATV’s for the RNLI!

This has absolutely nothing to do with skateboarding at all…. but it’s pretty cool.

Accelerator

Happy New Year! 2012 is going to be mental if you’re into this longboarding thing… there’s already loads of trips and events appearing on the horizon. We’re kicking things off with another new board – the Accelerator!

Looking for a rockered, mini freeride deck? Look no further… We took the Elevator and made it a little smaller, producing a super fun freeride and cruise setup. It’s 9ply maple – you could probably even race it if you really wanted.

Rockered, like many of our other decks this year, we love the board feel and we think you will, too…

Concave? Yep… we can do that…

Coming to a skate shop near you in March 2012… available for pre order shortly. More coming soon!
