Loaded Sama Longboard Deck

Discover the innovative Loaded Sama, a game-changer in longboard design. Since 2006, Loaded has utilized bamboo as the material of choice, allowing them to create a flex drop-through board. As the years went by, the Loaded team made subtle adjustments to the Dervish, but the time came for a significant transformation, giving birth to the Loaded Sama Deck.

The design team faced a unique challenge with the Loaded Sama deck. They aimed to enhance the original Dervish's feel while increasing versatility. The team achieved outstanding results through modifications to the deck's width, concave, and thickness, providing riders with a new overall riding experience.

The Loaded Sama deck features a vertically laminated bamboo core, nestled between layers of triaxial fibreglass and a bamboo bottom veneer. The deck is expertly pressed with concave and cambered curvatures, delivering a lively and responsive ride with exceptional energy return.

Through Width

Many different width and shape options were explored while prototyping the Sama. Using design software and curvature calculations, various different width were extensively tested and subtle changes to the deck shape made when necessary until the deck provided a satisfactory balance of comfort, edge control, and responsiveness.

Concave

TheSamaalso received a more pronounced concave profile, which is further enhanced by the increased deck width. The result is improved edge feel for turn initiation and extra control while sliding.

Camber

The Sama’s versatility lends it to many disciplines, but at its heart lies a deeply rooted passion for carving. The cambered platform and weight-tailored flex pattern work together synergistically to provide a lively, flowing ride.

Nose & Tail Kicks

To keep up with the current calibre of freestyle riding, theSamawas given the most tasteful of nose-jobs. After testing several new shapes and sizes, Loaded added subtle kicks to increase pop and to lock your feet in. The kicks are reinforced with an extra layer of fibreglass for added stiffness and durability.

GripTape

A six-piece symmetrical griptape pattern was designed with performance and elegance in mind. The two sections at the kicks use an aggressive, rougher-grit grip to provide enhanced control and security for manuals and freestyle tricks. The four middle sections use a milder, finer-grit grip (comparable to street skate grip) to facilitate dancing and footwork manoeuvres. The segmented design yields functional coverage without interfering with the board’s flex pattern.
