Description

wanderlust-side-large

The Wanderlust is a deck designed to live up to its name. Whatever lies ahead of you in your path, this deck can take it on. The Wanderlust was built after a family trip to Colorado. We were inspired by the local hills and decided we wanted to bring our love of adventure and hill riding to the lineup, as well as our family to Colorado! This was a pretty awesome move for us on all fronts, and it allowed me, personally, to take on the hills in the middle of my long distance pushes, being significantly lighter and smaller than the Nexus, but still just as low as any of the LDP boards. The wheelbase options on the Wanderlust allow for big wheels and loose trucks, or you can run the deck in a more downhill-worthy setup (this is how I do it) to get the trucks and wheels as close to the platform as possible and regain some of the grip that is typically lost from double drop decks. Is this as grippy as a topmount? Not quite, but it’s close enough that it’s very comfortable at speed, in turns, and sliding. It is a fairly small stance board (based out of the Trip mold). This cuts down on overall weight without giving an inch on stiffness, and it will help you grip corners when needed, due to the smaller wheelbase.

You can run this board with trucks down to 160mm without bite, and that will help its gripping abilities as well. Arsenal 165mm are our favorite cast truck on the deck. Stock Arsenal 165mm will bite a little bit due to the soft bushings, but the deep bushing seat allows for bushing versatility to create a nice stopping point to keep a setup nimble but bite free, and the slimmer setup will help with avoiding kicking the wheel when you get tired on your commute.

Overall, this is a great LDP/commuter board for heavier skaters who don’t want to risk a busting a flexy deck, for skaters who encounter hills or just want a touch more control on their daily rides, or for downhillers and freeriders who want easy access to the ground (sliding a double drop is way easier on the knees for us inflexible types) or just want to switch it up and try out a double drop because it’s fun!

We periodically produce small runs of the single and double-kick versions of this deck. They ride how they look. If you’re an urban rider, you may strongly consider one or two tails. A dedicated/talented rider will be able to ollie either deck. This is a fun board in all its forms.

    I have the Doublekick Wanderlust and it’s truly a marvel of a board. A do everything board that doesn’t limit what you can do with it, but instead makes it easier for you to progress your skating to greater heights.

    How does it do that?

    Well first off it’s a double drop, and that means that it’s very low to the ground.
    Since it’s so low, your knee doesn’t need to bend much when pushing.
    This allows you to have a very easy time pushing even for long distances.

    Have you seen those freeride videos of people doing huge standies? are you looking to do your first slides? Well the lowness really helps you to break traction, and it helped me to get my first standup slides down. It’s so much easier to learn slides on a double drop.

    Are you a beginner looking for a board that is easy to ride? The Lowness inspires confidence and is easy to learn on.

    Have you envied those freestylers with their bigspins, no complys, and tiger claws? well the kicks have a lot of pop and leverage and will let you learn those tricks and more.

    So in summary, you can push longer, freeride easily, downhill faster, and even freestyle! It’s a do-everything shred machine that is perfect for beginners and experienced riders alike, and i’m thankful to Jeff for making it.

    What more could you ask for in a board?
