Landyachtz boards are made in Canada, which is one of the best reasons you should buy a Landyachtz longboard. Landyachtz started in the fall of 1997 on the Northshore of Vancouver and used racing as a way to test and develop products that improve longboarding for every discipline; downhill, freeride, carving, cruising and commuting. All this being said, the best thing that we're doing to have the smallest environmental impact possible, is build quality products. Even though our boards are slightly more expensive than some of the other brands, the quality is far superior. Better quality boards equals less broken gear being thrown out, which lessens our overall impact. Quality over quantity.
