Landyachtz Status 46 Spectrum: A bright light in the world of Longboard Dancing
Do you ever find yourself awake in the middle of the night, and all of the sudden down the YouTube rabbit hole you go! Well that was me this past weekend. Last thing I remember was watching some freestyle and free ride longboard videos, then all the sudden it’s time to wake up. As I am finishing up the morning routine with my animals, I finally sit back down reach for my phone and there it is… an email confirmation, then it hit me, I now have a Landyachtz Dancer board!
Longboard dancing is 100% brand new to me, however I have been binge watching beginner videos ever since. I am starting to love the idea of a 45-46 inch double kick symmetrical board. I love skating and all the possibilities such a long board brings. I am hoping that my research pays off and I am able to do some basic cross steps and maybe even some Peter Pan steps.
The Landyachtz Stratus 46 Spectrum comes in at 45.5 inches long X 9.25 inches wide. It has wheelbase options from 27.5 - 29.5 inches. The complete comes with Gen 6 Bear 180mm 50° trucks with a 90a bushing. The wheels included are the 63mm Fatty Hawgs. This will be my first experience with these wheels specifically, I think they are going to pair very well this board.
Upon unboxing my Stratus I quickly realized that somehow the decked looked larger out of then it had inside the box! I was mesmerized by the beauty of the deck, the vibrant colors on the graphic and the quality of the build. With that in mind it’s out into the world we go.
As soon as I started pushing for the first time
I was hooked. The combination of a long wheelbase and relatively small wheels made for a “long” board with great acceleration. I also found the board to be very stable while staying very carvy as well. The Fatty Hawgs were extremely smooth and rolled very very well, they paired excellently with the 180mm 50° trucks.
A couple things that surprised me about the deck were how easy it was to pump on this board. I wasn’t really gaining any speed however I was able to maintain my rolling speed and let the good times roll. The other thing that surprised me the most was how much grip I had in the center of deck even though there was no grip tape there.
All in all my biggest takeaway is that longboard dancing is hard but I love it and look forward on my skating journey. Thank you all for taking the time to support my channel, I hope you all have a great day.
