The Machine

Lush Longboards

13Feb

Introducing our latest creation… the Lush Machine.

Yep… another all-chrome, all hand-drawn Tom Moore graphic… a nightmare to photograph, trust us it looks even more crazy in the flesh!

The Machine is a short, topmount speedboard, with a twist – it’s got a fully functional tail. As you can see from the side profile pic, it’s got a front-loaded rocker too, creating one of the nicest feeling decks in our quiver. The possibilities with this board are literally endless…

Double wheel wheels and an adjustable wheelbase, no matter what trucks you’re running, you should be able to get your ride low enough without wheelbite.

For freeride, sliding, bombing, parks, ramps, street even… the Machine flat out rules… and they will be available in shops at the end of March, and preorder on Vandem shortly.

ISPO

Lush Longboards

09Feb

We just got back from ISPO Munich – which turned out to be one of the biggest gatherings of longboard industry heads ever…

Ad’s showing off a Shocker in a rare moment of quiet on the Vandem stand… we had a fridge full of beer going, so things were very busy!

We also checked out Munich’s favourite longboard shop… Boneless

…and skated the Stuttgart Skate Museum, which has the smallest ramps ever, 2 floors underground in a sub basement!

Pete Fowler Interview

Lush Longboards

02Feb

There’s a cool interview with Pete Fowler featuring some of our graphics on wearelookingsideways.com right now.

“The longboards are fun to do as you have a huge canvas and the Lush guys I know from skating with them so they get my work. I really like working on skateboards, the iconic lozenge shape I see almost as CD or album covers where you’ve got this classic, defined space within which to work – longboards are a bit different, so fun and a bit of a challenge.”
