The “Legend” was the name of the first ever Lush longboard, shaped all those years ago in a Yorkshire cellar… it’s latest incarnation is a “dancer” surf-style shape, refined over the years to be slightly shorter, lighter and stronger than previous versions.
It’s perfect for some mellow cruising, and it’s ideally suited as a longboard dancer too.
Shape and Profile
The Legend is fully symmetrical in shape and profile to makes flips and shuvits easier.
Using a custom rocker with kicks, we’ve shaped a long standing platform with plenty of room for your footwork and dancing moves.
Rounded, steep nose and tail makes this deck much easier to pop into the air than a lot of similar-shaped longboard decks.
This deck uses our signature “X-Flex” construction, a composite sandwich of hardrock maple and two layers of bi-axial fibreglass, laminated together with waterproof Epoxy Glue. Lighter, stronger, with a springy flex.
X-Flex gives a better energy return, giving an awesome carving, pumping feeling through turns that will be familiar to wave and powder addicts.
Dancers will find it takes more abuse than a regular maple deck, holding its pop for longer, surviving rail impacts better, being more resistant to snapping under heavy impact.
Choose your setup
We’ve put a lot of effort into making the deck as good as we can make it – so putting no-name or substandard branded trucks and wheels on it would be silly.
You can choose your setup depending on your budget. If you’re planning on doing a lot of dancing, the Elite setup with Sabre Forged Precision Trucks is worth checking out – it turns on a sixpence and those trucks are bombproof.
With a super-comfy Rocker Profile with solid kicks and both ends, a simple but functional shape, wheel wells to keep things low, this is the perfect deck for all those tigerflips and Peter Pans.
This year we have shortened things up a little, making the decks slightly easier to get off the ground and more maneuverable for flips, turns and spins.
The strong X-Flex construction allows us to loose a ply, making the deck thinner and lighter than before, so it’s even easier to chuck around.
New for this year is a fresh die-cut grip job, with grip on the nose and tail where you need it for kickturns, shuvs, flips and ollies, and down the rails for grip whilst cranking the board over through a turn.
We’ve left the centerline free of grip entirely to make spinners and pivot tricks easier.
Ideal for Cruising
The Legend makes a perfect cruiser board if you’re looking to stand out from the rest with a longer deck. All the ingredients for a mellow ride are there – plenty of flex, light deck weight, long wheelbase, turny trucks and softer wheels – it’s spot on. Get one under your feet today!
