The Board

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

The Legend is fully symetrical 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.

Construction

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.

Longboard Dancer

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.

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!

This is a great board for dancing crosstepping, longboard tricks and also has enough spring to get you down the bike track on the pump alone. I sometimes feel it could do with some reverse camber on it just to give it that extra spring and boost but the flex is good even if your a big 15 stone man like myself. It's nice and light and great to throw around which is essential. It has started chipping around the side. I think maybe they could fully wrap the rails to help with this issue.

When I buy a dancing longboard I'm looking for some specifics: -1st the Flex: I need to have a board with flex in order to pump, to feel the flex in a curve... and to dance. For me the flex, it s like a drug (like the noise of spring)... :P. May be it will be interesting to have this board with diferent flex...my weight is 93kg ;) -2nd The size and the width: I'm 1m92 tall and the size of my foot is 46/47cm so it's for me important to have enough space to walk on it easily and not on the other foot or wheel or the ladybird taking the sun... :P (this board gives stability close to trucks in order to freeride, downhill or get stuck :P...) -3rd The use of the board: The board I buy has to be "multipurpose boards" Freeride, pumping, dancing, cruising, slide....and also to be able to look at it thinking What a beaufitull, charming, sexy .... :D -4th The design of the board: if it's thine, with some round, fishy, long, sharp, flashy... I know what you're thinking I not talking about a girafe :D -5th To have a tail, a nose tail or not: in order to tricks a lit bit with my foot or feets, to pump up the volume of the "Tac"... :P

Baught this board 3 months ago and I love it. It's everything you can wish for and more! I chose it mainly for its design but the performance is awesome as well. I use it almost daily to commute to work or get into town at the weekend.

Omen est nomen, the name says it all. The limits are only in the mind, this board has everything and even more. If you want, you can do backflips on it, because the flex is so awesome. I just heard that one guy in our team uses it for downhill, so what I said in the second sentence is confirmed. I use it for freestyle and street, and for me its the most amazing longboard I've ever tried in this style, because it feels so unique to ride, besides, if you want to improve your skills and strength in street skating, then this board is the gravity chamber what Son Goku used in Dragon Ball. All you have to do is to grow up for this board. Good luck with it!

Hi, I'm a french guy who's using it every single day since 1 year in Paris, for both dancing/freestyle and cruising. I'm just in love with it, and I'm proud to say that thanks to it I reached an honorable level. Kicks are perfect, flex is perfect, pop is perfect... It's a demanding board, but when you tamed it, it's pure fun. As a dancing rider, I'll just have two things to wish on your next version : longer, less concave. If you do that, it will be the perfect dancing board (IMO). It's probably not in your plans, but please let me dream.

To add on to what Gábor said... I'm the one on the team using it for downhill... yah, it's awesome I love this board because I can do anything I want with it. I ride it with very soft and responsive Sabre trucks (I ride barrel bushings with flat washers) I don't even know how to describe it. I get a much more surfy feeling on this board than other boards I've tried, which is fun when cruising or riding fast. It's also got pretty huge kicks for shovits, using it as a pogo stick (I've done that a lot, still holds up), and lots of room for dancing. I don't think there's nothing I don't like with this board. Only modification I've made is put on rough grip tape where my feet are in big standies/freeriding. Other than that, you're pretty much good to go and do anything you want with it. It rocks, boom! I'll be happy to answer any further questions from anyone aswell, so yah!

I was lucky enough to win one of the original Legends in a competition back in 1999 which is still used to this day! If the current one is as good as the original, it'll be tops!

Lush Longboards Legend X-Flex FAQ's

  • Question: Can you kickflip the Legend?

    - Yes, you can! The steeper tails make it surprisingly easy. Give it a go!

  • Question: How flexy is the Legend? What's the weight limit?

    - It's pretty flexy. We'd put 16 stone/ 100kgs / 225lbs as a max weight, although you could get away with heavier if you didn't leave the ground too much.

  • Question: Can I put my Blood Orange wheels on the Legend?

    - Yes, of course! We build these up with 66mm Cult Classics or 65mm Cult Chronicles, any wheels around the 60-65mm mark will be perfect on the Legend. A nice centerset wheel with a stoneground finish in 65mm will be spot on. Something cheap like a Mindless Longboards Haraka 66mm would be enough to get you rolling, but a branded wheel like Cults, Orangatang Keunus or Landyachtz Fatty Hawgs will be much faster and smoother.

  • Question: Can I use my Paris Trucks on the Legend?

    - Yes, they will work well! Any high-angle (47-50 degree) truck will be good. The Legend has quite a long wheelbase, so you want something that turns a lot at lower speeds. We build them up with Sabre Standard or Hollowlite Trucks, but Paris, Bear or Caliber trucks will definitely get the job done.

  • Question: How does the Legend compare to the Loaded Bhangra?

    - Although they're both "dancing" boards, there's quite a few differences:

    The Loaded Bhanga is longer, heavier, has a flatter concave and much mellower kicks. So if you prefer a flatter concave, the Bhangra will feel nicer underfoot - however, if you want to slide or do more technical dancing tricks that involve ollies or flipping the board around, then the Legend's steeper kicks, shorter length and lighter weight will help. More concave also makes the Legend easier to slide.

    The Loaded Bhangra uses a combination of cork, epoxy and resin, while we're using a more traditional Epoxy, Maple and Fibeglass. This makes the Legend a bit "springier" - wether this is a good or a bad thing is up to you!

    The Legend has a healthy dose of rocker along it's length, the Bhangra is much flatter overall

    The Loaded Bhangra is a directional shape (with a definite "front" and "back", while the Legend is totally symmetrical.

    We'd recommend 65-70mm wheels and high angle 180mm trucks on either deck.
