Chris Yandall - Samoan Warrior Skate Legend Complete - Fiber-Lam Maple
Honoring the memory of our dear friend and team rider Chris Yandall (1954-2014) - Sk8Kings has reissued this limited edition collector deck/complete.
Order your Chris Yandall Complete ready to roll right out of the box. Fully loaded with select quality components - this complete build is ideal for skogging and cruising boardwalks, bike paths, parking garages and all sorts of terrain. Designed by 70’s World Champion and modern day Father of Skog (switch pushing) and distance skateboarding - Chris Yandall. The deck is perfectly sized at 35" x 9 ¾” and made from Canadian hard rock maple with Fibre Lam composites. The deck features wheel wells all around and a super comfortable wide flat platform to traverse the miles on. The flat design promotes stability when alternating pushing foot and occassionally pumping switch stance. This also allows the long distance rider to build more symmetry in both left and right side leg and back muscles for an all around balanced workout. With the flat design - the Yandall is a great choice for long distance pushing - with plenty of forgiving real estate for your foot to land back on. At the very least it can be one of the most fun longboards you will ever ride. Not only will this board take you everywhere - but you can take it everywhere too - sized at 35" -- it will fit in most standard size skate bags.

BUILT FOR YOU: Please
specify rider weight when placing your order so we can dial the setup
accordingly. Setup notes from Chris Yandall: I like a lot of turn up front and stability in the back which is what my board off the sales shelf does. Any board that can at least do that rocks in my skogging world. I need room to place both feet on the board. Any more than that is extraneous!
