In redesigning a well-revered longboard, it’s possible to dismiss any and all notions that such a process would be considered “spiritual.” Yet, consider this: “A member of an order noted for devotional exercises involving movements of the body,” known as Dervish, based the foundation towards the initial offering of the Loaded Dervish Longboard. Generation 2 aligns Dervish with Sama ”the ascent – through meditation – beyond the confines of thought to attain a heightened state of maturity and closeness to God,” creating a 42.8 inch second coming of an otherworldly, bamboo perfected deck.The all new Dervish Sama is a longboard prodigy , well in touch with its virtuous roots, and a noble drop-through construction predecessor to the flagship model within the Loaded lineup. A widely defined, concave enhanced, flex-ready bamboo platform encompasses the deck’s core – THE mainstay, providing unparalleled responsiveness, controlled balance & comfort to support your trick & ride arsenal. Newly adapted, subtle yet very influential, nose and tail kicks lift this righteous redesign to the capable forefront of progressive freestyle riding. To retain such stability, both neck and drop-through sections are reinforced with sheeted fiberglass to ensure long-term durability. A strategy of epic proportions, the new Dervish Sama incorporates a seemingly abstract yet symmetrical 6-piece grip tape scheme to further sustain the boards unique flex pattern. Completing the Dervish Sama’s evolution towards a heightened state of pure awesomeness is the deck’s whirling dervish theme, now revealed in a slightly more abstract form with equally simplistic appeal – created by Diana Gracida of Nana Studios. 10 inch (180 mm) trucks with 70mm+ wheels, and are subject to specific rider-tweaked modifications. As a believer in all things reconsidered (within the action sports realm), BC Surf & Sport and BCSurf.com now carries the all new Dervish Sama deck and complete longboard setup for your downhill, carving, freestyle whirling enjoyment. And for all you “ol’skoolers” who wish to possess the original testament no longer in production, BC Surf & Sport still has the first generation Dervish in stock – while they last.
