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.
From a seat next to Gemini, walking backwards with its mighty claws, it grabs our Star and makes it to stay on the horizon a bit longer. Thanks to the Cancer sign we can bathe in the warm rays like in someone’s arms. Pure love is what this zodiac represents. Compassion to other people and well taught emotional patterns can lead to amazing outcomes. Remember: sharing your journey is a must and only honest feelings can penetrate the shell of doubtness.
Illustrator and graphic artist on a freelance from Poznańska Wilda – that’s our second artist Ada Jarzębowska who interpreted the sign of Cancer. She likes to draw, cut, glue, and claims that in high school she would burst with pride if she’d found out that one day she‘s got to design a skateboard deck. Let us assure you, that we are even more stoked to have her on board.
Featuring a sandwich construction of a lightweight wood core surrounded by hardwood laminates, fiberglass and a layer of carbon fiber, the new Lombardi Pro longboard deck provides you with the appropriate stiffness and damping abilities that will withstand the challenges of fast downhill skateboarding. The specially developed sandwich construction creates a thicker center base that stretches throughout the whole length of the board and slightly thinners at the edges which creates bigger wheel wells. In result, the construction not only lowers the weight of the board but also creates bigger wheel clearance to eliminate wheelbite if paired with big downhill longboard wheels. For added durability, Patrick’s Signature Longboard Deck Model is further reinforced with ABS protective sidewalls on the wheel wells, nose and tail that prolong the board’s life and protects the edges in situations when you can’t stop it from flipping over.
Shape & Profile
The Patrick Lombardi Pro offers a directional shape with a total length of 93.4 cm (36.77 inches) and a variable wheelbase ranging from 62.23 cm – 66.23 cm (24.5 inch – 26.07 inch). As the widest board in our collection, set at 25 cm (9.84 inches), its wide platform caters to various shoe sizes and eliminates toe and heel drag for those with bigger feet. Completed with a top-mount truck mounting system, the Lombardi Pro offers a more direct turning response and better overall control when picking up speeds, railing corners and doing long slides. The versatile design of the Patrick Lombardi Pro Model features a comfortable concave to assure you always have the perfect foot position and full contact between the soles of your shoes and the board when longboarding. This is paired with a slight rocker for fast transitions between heelside and toeside slides and an 8 mm micro-drop that will keep your feet safely locked-in and ready to throw a slide whenever you need to – perfect for when you really plan on sending it.
The Lombardi Pro signature longboard deck was created with fast freeriding and downhill in mind. However, to keep it versatile on the streets or even your favorite DIY park it features a nicely designed high kicktail to elevate your tricks to new heights and make cruising to your favorite spot even more fun!
