The Loaded Bhangra Longboard

Today I’m going to feature a guest post from the authors of the popular longboard blog, Review Longboards, who are writing about the Loaded Bhangra longboard.

The Loaded Bhangra longboard is the successor to the Loaded Dancer, a very popular board that certainly lives up to its name with its wild success at “dancing” down a hill. Loaded took a slightly different direction with this board aiming for excellence in all areas of longboarding rather than just focusing on one aspect.

First the board itself. The total length of the board is 48.5’’ which sounds ridiculous but it actually suits this board very well. When you also take into account, that this is actually shorter than the Loaded Dancer, the length seems more reasonable. This length though, combined with a weight of 10 lbs with all the components, means that this board is not the best for rides where you’ll have to carry your board a lot. Another aspect that this board does excel in though is included components. When buying it complete from Amazon or from Loaded, the board comes with very good Paris trucks and Orangatang wheels.

Now how does it feel when you ride it? Amazing. The board is slightly concave and covered in grip tape which ensures that when riding, you won’t slip. I have heard some complaints about the slickness of the grip tape but by and large the grip tape is effective for its intended use. Compared to regular Loaded boards, the board has less flex but it definitely makes up for it in agility and turns. It has an amazing turning radius for its long length and can easily make a 90 degree sidewalk turn at moderate speeds. In fact, that might be one of the most amazing things about this board: it rides with a smaller board’s agility combined with the speed and stability of a longer board. Ultimately, it is one of the best all around boards I’ve seen and is especially great for carving, tricks, and freeskating.

THE 9 FOOT & SINGLE 2014 from Deus ex Machina on Vimeo.
It was only a few years ago that everyone told us the Canggu river mouth was strictly a shortboard wave. They said it was too fast and too powerful for heavy longboards… haven’t we proved them wrong? Over the past three years the 9 Foot & Single has seen logging at its absolute best. It helps that we’ve had some the best in the world do the waves justice (think Knost, Chojnaki, Roach and more), but seeing the heavy logs lumber along in those kinds of conditions has been somewhat ground breaking. It has changed the way we think about longboarding; it has changed our perceptions about where and when a longboard should be ridden. On any given day, we recognize that the Canggu river mouth is a shortboard spot, but during the weekend of the event, when the water is cleared, our competitors 60’s inspired single fins have their time to shine. And shine they do!

The technique becomes more and more obvious as the years go by… it’s becoming an art form: take-off, noseride, tube, cutback, another noseride, end it off the lip… Each year the level of surfing jumps leaps and bounds. It’s ‘sky’s the limit’ surfing and it’s damn exciting for the spectators. Imagine watching dudes noseride their 9 footers at that speed! This year saw Devon Howard (one of California’s greats) take down guys half his age for the winner’s trophy. You know what he scored? A custom Thomas X Deus 9’6. But honestly, every surfer who competed in the 9 Foot & Single was a winner. The waves were pumping, the beer was pouring and the vibes were... pleasant? Please excuse me, but it’s hard to find a word that starts with P that will do the 9 Foot & Single justice. You’ll just have to come along and see for yourself next year. I can tell you now it’ll be a whole lot more than pleasant.
