The Gordito is the over-sized street shape that you didn't know you needed. You might recognize the artwork by Dirk Hays, we have used it on several occasions, and we thought the Gordito would be the perfect canvas for The Creature. Whether you're a bigger rider tired of feeling cramped on smaller boards or just looking for a bigger platform to make riding on hectic terrain a little easier, give the Gordito a shot.

100% Canadian Maple

Canadian Maple is a strong and proven material used in the world’s best skateboards. We source only the finest veneers found in Eastern Canada.

DEEP CAVE

Concave designed to really lock your feet in while adding responsiveness and control.

Kicktail

Take your skating into the third dimension with a kicktail. We design our kicktails to work perfectly with each deck shape as well as with the truck and wheel setup on each complete.

SANDED WHEEL WELLS

Wheel wells reduce the risk of wheel-bite by increasing the gap between wheels and deck. Sanded or CNC’d wheel wells both allow for larger wheels or looser trucks, if desired.

Here we have a fine example of a big ol’ skateboard. This beast is 35 inches long by 10 inches wide. Whether you have big feet or just want the stability of a big board, this board will be right for you. We set the Gordito up with 180mm Polar Bear trucks, which match the width of the board nicely and provide tons of stability. The trucks have loads of real estate for coping, flat bars, ledges, and anything else you can get your grind on. It is a perfectly functional skateboard with a bit of extra meat on it, great for a surfy feel. The Gordito, is a great all-round setup with 63mm 78a EZ Hawgs for roll speed and slide-ability.

Flex Rating

So, what’s flex and why is it important to a skateboard? In skate-nerd terms, flex is the amount of displacement a deck sees when a specific amount of force is applied to it. Check out our formula to the left! There are a few factors that affect flex, like deck thickness, wheelbase, and the amount of force on a deck. We built a machine and put our entire lineup to the test by applying the exact same amount of force to all our boards and measured the displacement we saw in each. This gives a totally scientific and accurate flex range across our entire line! It’s important to understand flex when choosing a board. Here are some basics: Downhill/freeride skateboards will have less flex because you need a stiff platform to stand on when you’re bombing or gripping a corner at speed. Carving skateboards will have more flex, giving you the ability to sink into your turns and pump or carve with ease. Most cruisers, dance and ATV boards will have less flex for control when doing tricks but just enough to be forgiving when pushing around town. We’ve engineered our boards with the best flex for each style of riding but remember, flex is subjective so get out a see what you like the most!

Good times

I’m a first-timer but I’m loving all the time I get to spend on my board. Since I’m 195cm and 105kilo I was worried about how it would hold up, but it’s really high quality

Most fun board I have.

I've been riding for about a year and a half, so I am arguably still a beginner. Despite this, I can say this is easily the most fun board I have ridden. As fun as longboards are, the freedom this board gives you is unreal. It's fast, easy to control, and you can (try) to do tricks on it. I'm bad at them, but other than being heavier than a trick board, it's fully doable. Even carving, though obviously better on longboards, feels nice on it. It's also small enough to carry with you to ride around campus, while being big enough to be comfortable going relatively fast.

TL;DR, this is a perfect jack-of-all-trades board. 5 stars, fun in every situation. May want hard wheels for the skatepark though.

I love this board

This is my very first board, and I am an absolute beginner. I chose this specific board because the area where I will ride most of the time its quite rough pavement, and I also like the extra space the larger board has, as I am older and not as agile as a younger rider. The board is fun so far, but I am just learning the very basics. I'm sure as I gain experience I will enjoy it even more. A significant part of my wanting to learn to skateboard is to improve my balance for martial arts in a fun way, and to spend time outside doing it. Win - win!

Awesome Board!

This board is Awesome! I bought this as a birthday gift for my best friend and he loves it. I've skated it a bunch of times myself and really had a blast.

Landyachtz are the best.
