Landyachtz’s newest decks; The Peacemaker and Trooper

The latest Landyachtz decks, the Peacemaker (codename Boomstick) amd it’s little brother the Trooper are finally out

And here’s what the manufacturer has to say about them:

 

The Peacemaker


Not long after the Wolfshark was introduced for 2011, it was planting ideas in our team riders’ minds. Over the summer they shortened the wheelbase, added a tail and turned the board into an urban DH machine. Here at Landyachtz it’s all skateboarding to us and we were stoked to have a tight-handling, ollie-able downhill board. The design process and rider feedback was great and the wheels were set in motion to make this a production model for 2012.

The concept was laid out for a medium wheelbase and a platform similar to that of the Wolfshark’s with a kicktail. However, a tail on a longboard can be hit or miss; to make it fully functional the length and angle have to be spot on. With a few rounds of fine-tuning the exact details were dialed in and it felt perfect.

For a few years Landyachtz has been prototyping boards with fendered wheel wells but the feature had yet to make it into a production model. This was the perfect opportunity to keep the standing platform directly above the wheels while avoiding bite and adding pockets for the rider’s feet to lock into.

 

The Trooper


In support of the Peacemaker is the Trooper. A bamboo cruiser version with the same shape and functionality in mind, it’s slightly scaled back without the fenders. Now, with both models released, the Trooper and Peacemaker provide two different flavors to attack ditches, banks and hills ready to blast ollies and standup slides. Now shipping to retailers everywhere, get your hands on one before they sell out!
