Recommended land board

Postby StokedNSmoked » Sat Sep 27, 2014 4:34 pm

Thinking of getting a land board. Weigh 145lbs/66kg. Primarily for use on grass for short runs and simple tricks. Interested in something durable and fun. Suggestions anyone?

I ride the MBS colt 90 this is the bottom of the MBS line costs about $150 it's fine for what I do. I have looked at the higher end MBS line like the MBS comp and other high end MBS boards they list for about $400, and what you get for that are better bindings and some shock absorption in your trucks if you think you might be landing hard you might want to go for the comp or pro models. These MBS boards are basically longboards with longboard trucks except they have inflated tires and some footstraps that's it. They seem durable enough for me. Never ridden the trampa so I can't compare how it is to the MBS stuff. I only mountain board on light wind days otherwise I'm on the water.

Thanks!
Which Trampa?
The folks at Powerkiteshop recommended MBS Core 90 or Scrub Psycho.
Thoughts?

Haven't rode a scrub in a long long time.

I sure hope they make them better now then before. If they have springs for trucks run away. They were very very unstable and made landboarding with a kite almost impossible. Also check the weight on them the older boards were heavier then concrete.

I still have two GI's and am heart broken they are out of business. Their truck design was by far the best i've ever ridden. I'm not a fan of regular skate trucks for kiting. Especially at high speeds

The trampa looks like a advanced GI board looks almost like they started where GI left off. If we could get em in the US i would defintely look at those.

MBS is pretty common and affordable parts and bearings are easily found. Other then that I don't know much about them they seem to be popular, but they look like a regular skate board and run regular skate trucks (not a fan) I like the longer boards for kiting but thats just my opinion.

I have the MBS Core 95 and the board is extremely durable. If I had to buy a board again I would go with something as durable but the lightest out there.

Any Trampa they are all good.

Go short, light with skate trucks if you have a hard smooth beach and want to twisty dangly stuff.

The rougher your beach and the faster you want to go. Go long, channel truck, big wheels.
