    Default Best Long Distance Pushing Board??

    Well I ordered my 2nd board 2 weeks ago (a Humu) and my other board is a Tan Tien. Niether of them are the best pushers, so I was looking for one that I'd be able to comfortably do like 5-10 miles on, eventually more.

    My criteria are pretty simple. I need it to be as low to the ground as possible. It NEEDS to have a dropped deck, and I'd like it to also have a drop-thru (Double drop), unless the dropped deck has a HUGE drop, like on the Pusher or Rolls Rolls. As of right now, I'm looking at:

    Longboard Larry Pusher v2 (in development)
    Rolls Rolls Woody (Although it's really expensive...)
    Subsonic Raven
    Rayne Demonseed
    Landyachtz Evo

    I'm looking for comfortability and ease of pushing, as well as overall performance of the board.

    Also, is it better to have a big wheel (like flywheels) on a pusher, or is it better to stay with "smaller" ones, let's say 80mm or under.

    Thanks!

    Clutch double tap with indies. 81mm center set red race forms. Remember that the bigger your wheels, the higher off the ground the board is going to be.

    I actually just got off the phone with Longboard Larry, and he said the Pusher 2.0 is a double drop, and is only 2" off the ground, with 93mm flywheels, and is going to be released soon. That's so freaking low... I think I'm sold.

    I got the standard demonseed, so have more room for tucking on bombs. Running 42 Prandal 195's on 85mm Speedvents. It is so low that it nearly has rail bite, even with 85mm wheels, prolly due to 42 baseplates.

    This deck is extremely heavy, but will put hair on your chest, and all other boards become feathers (so its a good training tool). But, honestly, I am probably just as sore (or moreso) pushing that beast on my 12mile route as I am pushing my lightweight NS Smoke drop-thru. You pay going up hills, due to the weight, but it is 'easier' to maintain glide on flat areas.

    If you have big hills, consider the trade-offs of weight vs how low, I betcha the new NS Soldier (rockered now instead of cambered, so lower than the Smoke) on RII 42's on InHeats would be a great long distance pusher. InHeats really have an excellent roll, and when they came out, lots of long distance guys started using them. And, that set-up would be ready for slides, carving, and DH all in the same package.

    Check out MuirSkate, they have the NS Soldier deck right now for $169 shipped (that's a good price!).

    But, if you are flatland, then the demonseed is a good choice, it glides forever, and it is so low you can do a toe dip push without even bending the board knee.

    i own a landy switch, i think its too heavy to long distance pushing, and has absolutely no flex.
    Fabulous at higher speeds though

    Can't you get it drop or double dropped? Usually he'll do whatever customizations you want.

    93mm Flywheels?


    P.S. If you're looking at the Subsonic Raven also check out the Century. 2.25" drop, wedged nose, and wide platform. Can be set up as pure pusher, doesn't have to be a hybrid LDP. I've seen a a couple set up this way, super nice board.

    A buddy of mine uses a demonseed with 40 degree grizzlies and risers to lower the deck further with 70mm zigzags for long distance pushing. You don't get hardly any turning out of this set up but pushing is the nicest thing ever on it.

    Here in South Florida, you get the occasional hill, but nothing that would warrant me NEEDING a DH board for commuting. Also, the weight is somewhat of a turnoff, as I would like to be able to carry it without breaking my back.

    I think I could get the same "lowness" to the ground with the 2.0 Pusher, plus it would be lighter.

    G-Bomb now has an extra-deep dropped bracket. I'm running 97mm's and the platform's still just 2" off the ground.

    That looks so cool, and I've been wondering what those things are called for a while... haha. But why should I get that over the dropped deck, like with a Pusher?

    I haven't learned to pump yet, and I'd like to have a good board to push anyway.

    If you do end up going for the deemon seed, get the dee lite, because that is a really heavy board, and a pain in the ass to push around.

    I can't spend $450 on a deck and feel good about it... Plus, why would I want it if it's a "pain in the ass to push around".

    On the contrary. I live in Florida, and the only consistent hills are used for parking...

    That's exactly why I don't really want to use a DH for pushing, as it would be unnecessarily heavy, and wouldn't be as carvy as a pusher (I think).

    Pushers won't be carvy because of the drop. You'll have no leverage. Really I suggest you learn how to pump, get an LDP and commute on that. It will be a whole lot more fun. Look at pavedwave for some advice.
