The Longbeard is a radically super-sized, collaboratively-designed biggerboard intended for use as a hill shralper, sidewalk surfer, or even as an elegant wall-hanger— should one feel so inclined!
– Team Longbeard
The Longbeard is a collaborative longboard born from the idea that skateboarding thrives when focused on community, creativity, and collaboration. Bustin Boards makes a range of quality skateboards, so of course we were more than happy to help design a radical Bustin deck when the opportunity presented itself. Together with Bustin’s experience in producing all types of quality skateboards, months of extensive prototyping sessions (skating!!!), and alas, an amazing graphic by #WheelbaseFam and skate-artist Kyle Rice, we proudly bring to you a limited edition longboard designed with fun and playfulness in mind. This board is big, it’s long, and it’s designed to shred a wide range of terrain, and of course with unmatched style and a lot of facial hair. Display it, skate it, enjoy The Longbeard!
The Longbeard measures in a 42.5″ long by 9.5″ wide and features a snappy tail, a wide and welcoming nose, generous wheel wells, mild wheel flares, two mounting options (24″ & 25″), and plenty of standing room to take your sidewalk surfing, hill blasting, or footwork wizardry to the #NextLevel. While we’ve found this board to work best (for us anyway) with 169mm Indy trucks, 60mm wheels, and 1/4″ of riser, the multiple mounting options will allow for a comfortable and responsive ride with your favorite reverse kingpin truck!
The Longbeard will be available in limited quantities (100 hand-numbered decks to be exact) starting Monday, November 24th via select retailers, to be announced shortly.
