Landyachtz Drop Carve Review
The Drop Carve lends a ton of technologies into one fun and functional board that is designed to perform and which never lets you down. As far as first impressions go, this board is pretty awesome. In terms of carving, cruising and freestyle, this board is quite fun. The kicks work great and it’s fairly lightweight, plus the mellow “W” feels so comfortable while cruising, and the concave is good enough to keep you from falling off the board on slides and tight turns. Speaking of tight turns, the Drop Carve can make some really tight turns. And it has a 23.9” wheelbase, which is pretty short which makes for very tight carving ability. Drop-through mounting with slight nose and tail kicks make for an excellent everyday ride to tackle any terrain.
The Drop carve is a versatile freeride and freestyle deck that will take your riding skills to the next level. A wonderfully snappy flex, symmetrical kicktails, and a variable concave make this board a no brainer if you are too much into doing tricks and slides. Even if you’re looking for a carving or commuter board, the Drop Carve makes an excellent choice. With fiberglass on the inner and outer layers and bamboo sandwiched in between, this really has a nice pop to it. You’ll definitely appreciate this plentiful pop when landing early grabs, shuvits, pressure flips, all kinds of amazing stuff. The variable concave, sublimated fiberglass bottom sheet, drop-through mounting and slight kicks make the Drop Carve one of the best all-around boards available.
