Designed to rally big mountain terrain and conquer World Cup podiums, the Switchblade has proven itself equally adept at getting you to the grocery store and ripping down your local hill safely. The mellow drops, long wheelbase and low ride height combine to offer a drifty, confidence-inspiring feel perfect for riders looking to up their freeride game. The Switchblade 40 is the longer version, offering a more stable ride and slightly easier slide initiation, as well as being a bit more comfortable for taller riders.

Setup 1 - 70mm 80a Mini Zombie Hawgs - ideal for freeride and stand-up slides.
Setup 2
 - 70mm 78a Black Supreme Hawgs - all-rounder, great for cruising but are equally great for flying down a mountain.
Setup 3 - 69mm 78a Black 69 Hawgs - best for fast downhill and freeriding.

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.

DROP DOWN

A lowered foot platform provides the most stable ride and gives your feet pockets to lock into while skating. These boards are also easier for pushing and foot-breaking.

DROP THROUGH

Drop through decks are lower to the ground and enjoy increase stability without sacrificing maneuverability.

Made in Canada

Ohhh Canada Eh!

SYMMETRICAL

Go both ways with symmetrical board design. Generally found in freeride and downhill decks, these boards allow the rider to skate both regular and switch without changing up their stance.

Length: 40
Width: 10
Wheelbase: 31

The Switchblade is a double dropped freeride shape that is designed to give you a low, comfortable platform for exploring big hills as well as getting around town as quickly as possible. Deep concave and foot pockets at the drops give you the reference points you need to explore the limits of your freeriding, and the 9 ply maple construction keeps the board stiff and under control. The 40 is the larger of the two sizes we offer, measuring 40" long by 10" wide and offers a driftier and more stable ride. This board comes set up with 180mm Gen 6 Grizzly trucks and 70mm 80a Mini Zombie Hawgs wheels for premium freeride capabilities straight out of the box.

Wheels

We design our trucks and wheels to fit perfectly with each individual deck. We work tirelessly to ensure these elements come together to provide the best control and performance for your board. No slop, all control. Don't accept anything less than the perfect complete.   Learn More >

40" Great board for 6.1' person, air travel not so

Switchblade 40 Chief Night is a bit long (40") to find a travel bag for, though the box that it came into should hopefully hold a couple of times for check-in luggage. Considering its price value, the box could use a slight upgrade, specifically adding some additional layer for nose protection. Other than the box, the board is great, just fun to use, proportions are greatly designed and a joy to look at really. Would also recommend wearing a helmet. Cheers

My son loves it!!!

My son started longboarding over the summer and quickly became hooked. He had a cheaper board that would lock up occasionally(and has the scars to prove it). He loves his Switchblade and how smooth the ride is! Thanks for making such a great product!

Grip Tape Problem (Update)

Canadian cold weather proved too much for grip tape. I had the board in the garage at -25C...

Amazing board, time and time again Landyachtz has proven themselves to be an amazing, trustworthy company. These boards make one feel like they're guiding on land.

Love this board!!!!!

Awesome board for cruising. Love the drop frame and wasn’t sure about the little curve in the center. But I love it for knowing exactly where my foot is.
