I'm an older guy (47) getting back on the board after a long hiatus. I was searching for a quality longboard to cruise parking lots with to help ease back into skating and to build up my confidence/balance on a board. I knew next to nothing about Landyachtz as a company or if their products were legit. To be 100% honest, the Black Pinecone graphic was what originally drew me to this complete. I read a few reviews and skimmed over the About Us page and I felt confident making my purchase.
I have been skating the Drop Hammer Black Pinecone for roughly a month now. Doing my best to squeeze in three sessions a week. I'm completely happy with my purchase and I feel very fortunate to have blindly lucked up and guessed correctly on a quality build.
The deck is light and springy. The concave is very mellow. Because of this, I have been able to quickly pick up carving with ease. The wide deck promotes confidence and balance on the board and I have even started pushing switch with amazing results. The trucks and wheels are top-notch and I have been having a blast bombing the few mild fifty-yard slopes at my regular spot. I haven't graduated up to any cool slides or drifts just yet, but I'm feeling more confident after every session and I feel a gnarly slide is within my wheelhouse very soon.
