Alternative Longboards x Zodiac

We are born with a sign. Stars overlooking our lives form maps, guiding us through voyages of lifetime. Each of us has its own emblem, proudly representing position of the Sun throughout the year.Since the ancient times it is believed each zodiac depicts our behaviourand having deep knowledge of the stars could forsee what is yet to come. And to this day they leave a special marking on our characters. But years ago who understood the planets, ruled the civilisations. On a dark night with clear sky we can admire the very same view our ancestors once did, and connect with the same paths our zodiacs travel for us each day.

May your plans and people you meet always be in favour of what you are looking for.
Because everyone is born under a lucky star.

 

 

Aries

A potential to pave the way. Strength, focus and energy – you have it all. Don’t take any steps back, but sometimes slow down, take a deep breath
and think about your next move. People don’t necessarily like to stop you – but don’t use it against them, because we are all a herd which needs
a ram battling through obstacles and adversities. You have the power to carry the ones in need, and make things possible to them.
With your sense of the surroundings you have a perfect set of abilities to uncover what is not visible to most. You are good. Please, do good.
Speed up your mission with one of our six different models. Each one has a unique serial number available only through www.land-mfg.com

 

Iza Dudzik

Iza Dudzik is an illustrator who strongly identifies herself with the potato, which is why she has recently moved to the city of Poznań, where potatoes are treated exceptionally.
However, she dreams of moving closer to the sea one day, even though there is no such gastronomic connection anymore.
Although she graduated graphic design, on a daily basis she deals mainly with illustration and is also happy to work with orders related to design.
She had the opportunity to work with brands such as Wedel, Asus, Nike, Newsweek, Puro Hotels, Danone, BnpParibas and Volvo.
Most often, her works can be seen in the form of press illustrations in magazines.
In her free time, she likes to practice cheeky laziness with her cats, travel, eat and learn new things.

 

 

Inspiration

The inspiration for creating the board was mainly the eyes of a Aries, which is not my zodiac sign, but as an animal I have always been fascinated by the rams.
When I was a child, I was afraid to look into the eyes of these animals. I was concerned about the horizontal placement of their rectangular pupils. I was convinced they could hypnotize.
Today I know that these pupils help herbivorous victims to notice an impending threat, thanks to their wider viewing angles, and they have little to do with hypnosis.
However, childhood imaginations became a good pretext for expanding the image of Aries as the demonic ruler of the mind.
I also opted for a different, horizontal composition of illustrations to complete the whole of this horizontal inspiration.

It’s easy to admit that it is you Iza, who hypnotized us with your work. Let this trance continue!

 

 

Construction

The Egret is handmade in Poland with a well thought out construction consisting of a light and energetic wood core surrounded by hardwood laminates, fiberglass and a layer of carbon fiber to provide excellent damping abilities and dimensional stability. Its proven sandwich construction enables the creation of our unmistakable fat bottom design that extends towards the tip and tail and slightly narrows at the front and back side edges. As a result, the Egret offers a stable platform with a bigger wheel well design that lets you pair it with your favorite trucks and wheels without needing to worry about wheelbite. For improved durability and longevity, the Egret is strategically reinforced with impact protective ABS sidewalls surrounding the nose, tail and wheel wells with an added bottom layer of ABS on the tips. Completed with a top-mount truck mounting system, this board offers a more direct turning response and improved board control when riding.

 

 

Shape & Profile

The Egret presents a symmetrical shape with a total length of 110 cm (43.3 inches), a width of 23 cm (9.05 inches) and variable wheelbase options ranging from 70 cm to 74 cm (27.55 inches – 29.13 inches). Its spacious platform is paired with a mellow concave for comfortable foot placement and a slight rocker for seamless edge-to-edge transitions. To elevate your skating skills to the next level, the Egret offers a more aggressive kicktail design compared to its predecessor with an added layer of ABS impact protection to keep you skating longer. This longboard deck is available in two flex options. For the best experience on your new longboard, choose between Soft Flex (recommended rider weight up to 65 kg) and Medium Flex (recommended rider weight 65 kg or more).
