Loaded Dervish Sama
Loaded Dervish Sama Deck
Deck only. Incl. Grip tape.
Brand new: The Sama. Quasi a mixture of the Tan Tien and the old Dervish. More concave and smoother flex make this deck better than ever. Believe the hype!
The new Sama has a Loaded-typical camber and, in contrast to the classic Dervish from 2011, more concave, so you can put more pressure on the edges and have more control with slides and tricks.
In order to meet the demands of the modern longboarder, the board has nose and tail kicks, which make all flips and freestyle gimmicks easier for you.
In addition, the flex levels have been revised in order to get maximum performance out of the deck and also to offer lighter drivers perfect driving pleasure.
Please choose Flex:
Our personal recommendation:
- Flex 1 is hard, i.e. 75-95kg.
- Flex 2 is medium 45 to approx. 80kg.
- Flex 3 is soft up to a maximum of approx. 60kg
These flex details are our personal recommendation !!!!
Everyone should decide for themselves whether the board should be a little softer or harder ...
Flex classification of Loaded:
Flex 1: 170-250 + lbs / 75-114 + kg
Flex 2: 100-185 + lbs / 45-84 + kg
Flex 3: 75-150 + lbs / 35-68 + kg
Flex 3 is a new flex level that is ideal for all lightweights who weigh less than 60 kg and finally want to ride a flexible board! Fiberglass and newly defined nose and tail kicks make these even more useful for tricking. In addition, the Sama is 1 inch wider and 1.5 inches longer than its predecessor and therefore even more versatile. 180mm axles and rollers up to 75mm are recommended.
Length: 42.8 "/ 109 cm

It all started in 1995. The feeling of snowboarding on asphalt, that's what the Loaded guys wanted to achieve. During the development of the boards, testing every conceivable axis, axis spacing and every available cover material had a significant influence. Everything was beaten down the local downhill mountain and extensively tested.
In the search for an active flex and controlled, precise steering behavior, old snowboards were soon brought into longboard form, axles and rollers were mounted and the first flexible longboards were ready. These boards have been tried and tested for a long time. The owners of Loaded took courses in materials science and were trained in the processing of composites in order to advance the idea of their own boards and their quality.
Between September 2000 and June 2002 Loaded only tested boards and, with the support of the best snowboard and skateboard developers, advanced the shapes and materials of the decks. Testing the materials became a full-time job.
The guys heard from all sides that the processing of wood and fiberglass in one product would be impossible. That made her sick, but it also drove her straight in the direction Loaded is in today. To process the finest materials with fiberglass. Loaded makes the most popular boards these days and is still driving development.
