With a lower center of gravity and a torsionally stiff design, the Loaded Boards Dervish Flex 2 Complete Longboard is built to hold an edge and maximize energy return. A drop-thru carver designed to work with most reverse kingpin geometry trucks and 70mm+ wheels. The dropthru design allows for easier pushing, more stability at speed, and easier sliding. It has a small flat nose and tail for manual and shovit tricks. The Dervish was designed and intended for speeds between 0 and 30 mph (0-50km/hr). You can take the board faster with skill and experience, but it is not intended for higher speeds due to its flex characteristics.
Built from an epoxy and Tri-axle fiberglass sandwich a vert-lam Bamboo core, pressed into concave and convex cambers for liveliness, responsiveness and high energy potential. Great all around board for Down Hill, Hills, Carving, Dancing, Sliding, Commuting, Pumping, and Banks & Bowls. The board is designed for a centered, snowboard style stance. Learn to footbrake and slide. These are the safest ways to slow down at speed and they will allow you to increase your skills immensely as well as keep you safe on the hills. The dropthru design allows for more lateral pressure on the wheels. A lower stance will provide more control for stand up slides.
Inspired by ancient Persian Islamic art, this board was named the "Dervish" as a reference to the Whirling Dervishes. A sub-sect of Sufism (Mystical Islam), the Dervishes are famous for their ritual whirling dances, an aerobic flowing movement designed to produce spiritual ecstasy.
