The basis of our Freestyle series, and one of the most influential shapes to come out of our workshop. James Kelly paid his respects to the Tripper with his Vugenhausen, the Landyachtz Topspeed is affectionately named the Landyachtz Tripper here, and small and large companies alike have a Tripper shape now in their lineup. There was a vaccuum in the existing shape field, a new category of board, and the Tripper filled that vaccuum. We’re happy about it, and so is the Allgäuer dude who showed up quite independently of us with the same shape many years ago at Altusride.
And what exactly did Hackenstein and Alfred mix into the Tripper? A freeride board, well qualified for sliding, with an affinity for speed, without any distractions for your daily cruise or travels. A transport platform, a switch toeside machine, that admittedly can become interesting above 80kmh. The ingredients? Rocker, mini drop, pockets, toewrapper concave. Topmount, you already knew.
Trick possibilities are the only thing missing to make the Tripper a true allrounder, due to the lack of nose and tail kicks. Alfred has a street deck for that. Otherwise, the Tripper is a fine tool for the ambitious longboarder that loves to ride and never misses a session.
