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

By combining a light, springy core with surrounding hardwood laminates, fiberglass and a layer of carbon fiber, the Fantail offers a lively and vibration damping ride. The specially developed sandwich construction creates a thicker center base that runs through the whole length of the board and slightly narrows on the front and back edges for bigger wheel wells. In order to keep you skating longer, the Fantail’s durable construction was further reinforced with strategically placed protection of ABS sidewalls surrounding the wheel wells and the board’s ends. Not only does this enhance the durability, but also protect the edges in situations when you can’t stop the board from flipping over.

 

 

 

SHAPE & PROFILE

The Fantail is a 90 cm (35.43 inches) directional longboard with a top-mount truck mounting for better maneuverability and board control when riding. With a slightly wider front and tapered tail, it promotes smooth turning entry and exits and improved stability at higher speeds. It’s 24.5 cm (9.65 inches) width provides a big enough platform for a stable and comfortable foot placement no matter your shoe size. Paired with a comfortable concave and rocker, the Fantail enables you to safely carve and effortlessly perform edge-to-edge transitions for quick heelside and toeside slides.

 

 

RIDING STYLE

The Fantail is a downhill and freeride longboard deck with a stiff flex that was designed for all skill levels. You can skate it at your local slide spot, on newly found mountain runs, longboarding events or cruise your streets and take advantage of its high kicktail with a massive pop. Whether you’re a beginner or pro, having the right board under your feet really matters, so have a closer look at the Fantail and get yourself the best gear for your needs.
