Sector 9 sidewinder replacement deck

Postby bigad » Fri Sep 30, 2016 6:52 pm

Purchased a fantastic sidewinder with gullwing trucks.
Like a duck to water, it's real easy to pump.
The only problem is at 36inches it's a bit short for me.
Unfortunately sector 9 don't bring any longer bamboo decks into the U.K. so I'm thinking about getting something that will go with these trucks.
Loaded Dervish Flex 1 looks good, I think.
Looking for something that carve and pump with these trucks.

Loaded are good quality but the Dervish is getting on a bit and is quite narrow. If you need more foot space and are looking at bamboo how about a Holesom Street Sweeper? Top mount so still very pumpable and although not too much longer than your S9 at 39.75", with a decent width (9.25") and many wheelbase options (34.5"/33"/31.5"/29.75"/28.25") it would have a much bigger efp. And they look very cool imo :lol:

Thanks Bleary.
The Holesom is a crazy looking deck. Unfortunately I can't see any in the UK.

Bite the Bullet and import something, then you have freedom of choice and can get exactly what you want.

British Longboard Company - Lush Longboards. Haven't looked at their range of boards in a long time but its a local option.

The longer your deck the harder it is to pump and don't forget that wheelbase comes in to play here. You could get a 36" deck with a longer wheelbase if stability is the issue.

I've been rolling around the streets on this for a couple of years now. Not really a pump board as such but the way I set it up its like surfing or a snowboard. Turns quick and its a flexible deck to add to that surfy feeling.

I grabbed a Lush Freebyrd complete recently to see how I would be on a board. Got hooked, now ended up with Lush Symbian 3D (Sabre Hollowlite trucks, and Cult emperor wheels).

As you say regarding the wheelbase, the Symbian is a longer board, but wheelbase is about 0.5" shorter (that is in standard position, you have about 0.25" adjustment front and rear).

But I will give a thumbs up to their quality, and service.
