Bustin Limited Edition Sojourn SV4 Longboard Complete
As you can see, we’ve been burning the midnight oil at our Brooklyn Labs and burning up urethane in the streets of New York City coming up with so many fresh designs and redesigns (and re-re-re-designs). The latest evolution is the 4th Edition of our popular shortboard/longboard hybrid deck, the Sojourn Version 4 (otherwise known as SV4). For this round we’ve made several tweaks to make the board more responsive and more durable. In addition we’re now offering the ultra-durable fiberglass edition along with brand new Limited Edition Quick-Tag graphics done by local Brooklyn graffiti writers. Its a lot of change to take in, we know. But we guarantee that if you’re looking to step up your freestyle game, this board will take you to the next level.
Creating a good hybrid longboard is not an easy task. The truth is that the gap between longboards and shortboards is dificult to bridge. Finding the balance has been our goal with the Sojourn board and the latest version is the closest we’ve come to longboard/shortboard love. We’ve balanced more comfortable foot space over the trucks, with a functional, responsive truck mount geometery. This means the board pushes and glides more like a longboard, but ollies and lands more like a shortboard. We’ve tweaked the contours giving you more forward positioned ‘push camber’ while also steepening the tail, give you more leverage and pop. This means the SV4 cruises and carves better than before while also giving you more tail for bigger, smoother tricks. Here in NYC you won’t find many longboarders who weren’t shortboarder’s first and it has been their relentless vision that has brought the Sojourn to its 4th revision. Enjoy!
For the SV4 graphics we really wanted to do something that represented the style of the gritty, New York City skater. We partnered with a 10 graffiti writers from across Brooklyn and came up with this quick-tag concept. The inspiration were the graffiti covered walls, mailboxes and box trucks that we skate past everyday here in NYC. Being a New York skater your natural environment is artificial; the concrete as your the landscape and the graffiti is your flowers.
The new limited edition graphics are only available on the Limited Edition Red Dip 7ply Maple version AND the Limited Edition 5ply+Fiberglass version. This graphic is not available in the custom graphics portfolio (sorry). Special thanks to each of the artists who contributed to the collaborative quick-tag graphic!
