The Landyachtz Switchblade is one of the most popular and appreciated mid-range longboards. It has a luminous bridge and a bridge design that changes from year to year. If some people think Landyachtz’ design is simple and boring, I think the longboard looks elegant and finished.
The Landyachtz switch is mainly used as an introduction to freeriding for beginners. In the following overview we will see why this is the case and why the switch can be used for much more in Longboards magazine.
Board of Directors
Land Yacht Switch 40.5 inch long and 10 inch wide. Like a bag, a shelf with a truck and wheels, the very long shelf weighs 12 pounds, which seemed relatively heavy when I carried it.
Landyachtz used Canadian maple wood for the deck of the longboard, which gives the weight and provides a stable construction for the other parts. There’s not enough on this board not to bend.
As described above, each year has its own calendar. As you can see on the left-hand side, Landyachtz had published a chart called Chimera until 2016, which shows a crown on a lion-like creature with an eagle’s head, wings and tail.

Instead of a fully foldable design like Arbor Walnut (another large plank very similar to the Landyachtz Switchblade), the Landyachtz Switchblade has a more W-shaped design. This means that the ends of the plank are slightly bent down instead of falling off sharply, as is the case with other planks that fall off.
It shows an overview of the Land Yacht Switch 2015 page. As you can see, there are clearly defined positions for the feet of the rider.
It may not offer such a large cradle for the feet due to the gradual fall of trucks on the main deck of the longboard, but it provides a structure in which the legs can be pushed while sliding and turning.
The game board is symmetrical at the side, top and bottom. This results in two slightly flat and hollow positions where the rider can place his legs directly on the edges of the bridge.
Corrugated board parts (trucks, wheels and bearings)
The trucks are installed via the apron of the Switchblade Landyachtz, creating a stable fall configuration. Landyachtz Switchblade uses the royal Paris V2 pilot for its trucks with a tilt angle of 50 degrees of .
The rotation angle of the trucks allows them to offer a long side with a good balance between manoeuvrability and stability. In addition, one of the advantages of the Parisian trucks is that every truck is guaranteed for life. Is there a problem? Send it and buy a new one!

The wheels of this longboard are called Divine Street Slayers , which is perhaps one of the coolest names for longboard wheels I have ever seen. Mr. Landyachtz praised it as the ideal size and material formula for all aspects of longboarding.
The wheels of the Divine Street Slayer have a diameter of 72 mm, which is ideally situated between the proposed lowering diameter and the freewheels. They are also semi-soft with a hardness of 78A, which, according to Landiachtz, indicates that they can be as cheerful as they are cut in the bottom and sides as they are on the local market.
The bearings are mini Bones bearings with the , which should not be confused with the bearings of our always popular Red Bones brand. But that doesn’t mean these camps are worse! Bearings with the Mini-Skate logo are designed to be machined with high precision so that your wheels rotate continuously.
Moreover, these bearings come with Speed Cream grease, so you can take the Landyachtz switch right out of the box and start your journey.
Switch for land yachts
Landscape switch Now let’s go to the part most readers are interested in: Longboarding. And I loved getting on that plate. After spending a week with Landyachtz Switchblade, I got almost everywhere good grades for riding this longboard.
One of the most important aspects of this longboard is the choice for a combination of deadly trucks (Paris V2 RKP 50 degrees) and a drop-down platform. This combination gives the Board of Directors an incredible sense of security and at the same time allows it to exercise considerable control.
For the ease of cutting I always kept my trucks very clear, most of them came out of the box. The symmetrical design of the recess of the Landyachtz didn’t allow me to bite the wheels, which surprised me because my trucks were very free and I tried to push this image to the limit.
Another advantage of the symmetrical design is that the main controller is probably the lightest I’ve ever seen. There is absolutely no difference between the front and the back of this board, which is perfect if you come out of a 180 degree slide and the back of the longboard is turned forward!

One of the biggest comments I got when comparing my experiences with Switchblade was about the stability of the board. I really enjoyed it.
You can always climb on a dagger, balancing a case of beer from the front without breaking it.
Can you imagine sitting on a longboard with a case of beer in the front? What real stability!
With all the good things that come with longboarding, I (in my opinion) really have to go through some weaknesses. One of the aspects where I felt this board was missing was the long pumping, because the hollow and lowered board makes the legs in different positions, not very comfortable in the middle of the board.
Another aspect that comes to mind as a compromise with the stability of this longboard is careless dancing. Although the Landslide Switch has strung well, I wouldn’t call it a dance floor because the movements aren’t fluent enough. If you want a plate that can easily dance on the hills, I recommend Loaded Tan Ten, because she’s in the same price range and is an excellent longboard dancer.
Also, although I haven’t had any problems with it, it seems that there are cases where people try to check this board with less weight because of its weight and width.
Again, I haven’t had any problems managing that body, so I can’t tell you exactly what the problem is. It is possible that the riders have the wrong size board for their size. The figure above shows the size chart of 3 different lengths of the switch blade of a land yacht.
I would say you should always be on the side of caution and get a smaller sign for your growth. It is better to have a small, easy to use longboard than a bulky sample.
Who should buy a boat shore switch?
In general I saw this longboard as an incredible freeride, cruising and abseiling longboard in that order. It fell for a while, grew long distances and danced on the hills. In my opinion, however, it has more than made up for its weaknesses with unparalleled stability at high speeds and its ability to handle both freeride and downhill well. The very long board is really well designed and built to meet the needs of motorcyclists.
Riders looking for the ideal board for free riding, which is also suitable for many other purposes, such as cruising and descending, should buy this board. I also recommend this board to beginners who want to freeride, because the stability and symmetrical design makes this longboard feel supported with every step and helps prevent falling.
