Vandal V3 Longboard
The Vandal is a sleek, simple top mount inspired by our favorite NorCal riders and developed by our global team for racing and freeriding. It originally appeared as a special release in our Epic Boxing Day sale as the SharkShark – we laughed ourselves silly releasing such a simple board – but it became an instant success.
Since the SharkShark we’ve kept the Vandal deceptively simple – we have loaded this uncomplicated looking board with tech features like 3D wheelwells and Fatbottom construction for wheel clearance and a 15% reduction in weight! Our latest innovation on the Vandal is simple too – an updated shape and additional inner mounting holes to give you as many set-up options as possible.
With the new shape and featuring original art from Lauren YoungSmith (@lolo_ys), this is the sexiest Vandal to date. Rise up and ride, and paint some roads with thane on the new Vandal.
Length – 35.5″
Width – 9.75″
Wheel Base – 21.5 – 27″
The Three Dimensional Concave on this board works like this:
1: Integrated Wheelwells: subtle, pressed in curves in the front and rear open up the concave to naturally allow for more diverse wheel options, while allowing the rider to find their front foot without looking.
2: Integrated Gas Pedals: extending from the Wheelwells in the rear, the pressed in curve creates a natural ridge to dig your foot into pushing out toeside drifts and slides and a valley to sink your foot into for heelside lock-in.
Sharp Edges – Final touch for locked in feet
Fat Bottom Bamboo Core – Strong and light, thick and juicy, this baby’s got back.
Pre-tensioned Triaxial Fibreglass – Adds long life, durability, strength and energy return.
Directional Shape – This shape is directional, but has full width all the way through the standing platform.
Sublimated Artwork – Scratch-resistant ink is tattooed into the deck.
Leverage Concave – Grips from the ball of the foot to the centre of your heel for outstanding turn control.
Speed-stiff – Don’t get bounced! Stiff boards will make you stable at high speeds.
3D Wheel Wells – Fight against nasty wheelbite and keep your feet in place.
Universal Variable Top Mounting – Lets you pick the wheelbase that works best for you.
Bee Orange Finish – Smells good, tastes great, and seals and protects your board without harmful chemicals.
