The Board

The Freebyrd is a symmetrical cutaway drop through longboard with a cambered profile and a nice responsive flex.

Drop-Through Trucks

The Freebyrd features drop-through truck mounting. This means that the trucks are mounted through the deck via the top of the truck baseplate, rather than on the bottom of the baseplate like a regular skateboard or longboard.

This results in:

  • lower deck height = easier to push and footbrake
  • lower center of gravity = more stable at speed
  • lower ride height in relation to the wheels = slides become easier to initiate and control

All these characteristics make the Freebyrd a perfect beginner board. It’s great for learning longboarding basics and learning to slide.

An Ideal Cruiser Board

The Freebyrd is our entry level all-rounder, perfect for nipping to the shops, learning to slide or just cruising around. It has a flexy ride thanks to the cambered maple construction, giving great energy return from carving turns and a smooth ride over rougher road surfaces.

Built complete with wide-track 63mm Lush Acid Drop wheels, and turning on custom-specced double barrel bushings in a 180mm wide RKP truck, this gives the first time longboarder all you need at a decent price.

Pick your style from the “Woodgrain,” Surf or “Green Room” graphics.

Bonus info – the photo on the “Green Room” graphic was taken at a famous UK surf break. If you can guess which one, email us and we’ll send you a special prize!

The Freebyrd is a really nice cruiser, perfect for both a causal skate along the coast and for a quick dart through town. Its really nice and flexy making it very responsive with some good pump. Although I am not a beginner, it would definitely be great for one, especially for the price!

Bought this deck as my son had his xmas present snapped by a car running over it. we visited the shop and Adam fitted the new deck. i cant praise the service highly enough, deck fitted, bearings adjusted, lots of good tips. These guys know their subject, ask them for advice and let them carve the right path for you. Remember, you aren't just buying a board, you are getting advice and support in the deal.

Bourght the board as a replacement deck. Put my own 76mm 78a wheels one with bones red bearings and swapped out the bushing for sabre's. It rides beautifully and changing the bushings has really made a difference to turning capability. The quality of the deck is exellent and shape is simple but great. I was really please with the postage time and the free bits in there. I think I will deffinetly be coming back to Lush if I need any parts or boards in the future!

I've just taking up longboarding, so this is my 1st board. But that said I'm gaining confidence quickly seems a stable board at most speeds. I did get speed wobbles at one point but I think that's because of my low skill level, not the board. Overall I'm very happy with the board and the service from the guys at lush longboards. Cheers dudes

I bought my board a year ago and he's (I named him Sanchez) been a faithful companion so far. Light, stable down a hill and really fun to push around town. Don't let the camber scare you off (I originally wanted to learn on a rocker), once you get used to it you'll appreciate the extra flex! One thing I will say is those 63mm Acid Drop wheels are a bit on the small side for the quality of pavement where I live, but I picked up some dirt cheap 76mm offset wheels in Barcelona for pennies, and now Sanchez is a monster truck!

Just beautiful. Bought two for my nephews to start their journey down the hill. Everything I expected and more. The lads at Lushlongboards couldn't have done a better job. (Cheers Adam)

Lush Longboards Freebyrd FAQ's

  • Question: Is this board good for learning to slide?

    - Yes! This is a great first place to start learning to slide. Once you;ve got it down you might want something with a bit more concave and a stiffer deck - so if you can stretch to it, a Symbian 3D is worth looking into.

  • Question: Can this deck be topmounted?

    - Yes, of course. This is a great option if you want to put some bigger wheels on like Orangatang Kegels or Cult Raptures for a smoother ride. We haven't really tested this out with that many setups, so watch out for wheelbite!

  • Question: Can you use the Freebyrd for dancing and tricks?

    - Yes, there is enough of a nose/tail to flip the board if you want to. But if you're really stoked on this kind of longboarding, we recommend that you check out that the Symbian 3D, which features a much stronger construction and more aggressive kicktails.

  • Question: I am considering the Lush Freebyrd as a complete beginner for cruising and carving and attempting to improve my surfing. The Samba is out of my budget, and I'm not interested in learning to slide. How turny is the Freebyrd as standard and what upgrades can I buy to improve it's carving performance?

    - The Freebyrd is a great longboard for beginners - it's designed to skate as well as it can for those looking to buy a cheap longboard setup.

    We've found over the years that the most important thing on a cheap longboard complete is the trucks. It's the trucks that give you that carving feeling - more expensive trucks tend to come with higher-specced bushings, closer tolerances on the pivots, and a refined geometry. In our opinion, if you're really looking for the best bang for you buck, trucks should be the last thing you skimp on.

    With this in mind, it's really worth checking out the Pro and Elite setups, which come with come with Sabre trucks as standard. Whilst this isn't going to compete with the Samba in terms of out-and-out carving performance, you would not believe the difference that this will make compared to other cheap longboards out there!
