Loaded's first venture in drop-through construction, back in 2007, resulted in the Dervish, a flexy, versatile bamboo composite carver. Five years later the Dervish was updated and the Sama was born.
Now the much loved Loaded Sama has a brand new graphic, this version illustrating the arcing and flowing movements possible on this carving board and honouring the whirling and spiritual experience debuted by the original Dervish...yeah whatever - great graphics though and the usual superb Loaded quality!
The Loaded Dervish Sama deck at 42.8" long and 9" wide has a slightly larger platform than its predecessor, balancing comfort, edge control, and responsiveness. A more pronounced concave profile, combined with the extra width, gives an improved edge feel for turn initiation and extra control while sliding. Subtle nose and tail kicks were added to the Sama to increase pop and lock your feet in for freestyle tricks. An extra layer of fiberglass added to the kicks provides more stiffness and durability when hard riding.
Construction is from Epoxy and Tri-axle fibreglass with a vert-lam Bamboo core which is pressed into concave and convex cambers offering liveliness, responsiveness and high energy potential. Drop through trucks give a lower center of gravity, making the board more stable at speed as well being super easy to slide out.
Loaded introduced a third softer flex option to the Sama, for riders weighing less than 140 lbs, enabling them to enjoy a much more lively and comfortable riding experience.
The Loaded Dervish Sama longboard deck is a great board for cruising, carving, and freeriding, offering a very smooth and stable ride.Specifications:
