Powell•Peralta is proud to introduce Andy Anderson's new Baby Heron, Vajra Deck, the culmination of over a decade of evolutionary performance-driven design modifications, making this new all-terrain deck easier to ride, flip, and pop than standard “popsicle” designs, which haven't changed in thirty years. Andy focused on making every aspect of his skateboard functional, easy to ride and designed to wear into every skater’s performance-enhancing personal shape.
Ten prototype evolutions of Andy’s 3rd generation Vajra deck were required to achieve this perfection. Made with the incredible strength of Flight Deck construction, the Vajra is durable and will stand up to the demands of today’s advanced skating.
Andy's set up with this deck is Mini Logo 8.0" trucks and his 52mm 97A Nano Cubic wheels.
FLIGHT™ Decks are:
Thinner - as thin as your phone
Stronger - more than twice as strong in our tail break tests
Longer lasting - The epoxy infused, fiber reinforced structure of the Flight deck is extremely resistant to breaking, and this structure gives them "everlasting pop" that doesn't fade as your deck slowly wears.
Ollies higher because of greater rebound and snap.
Team testing suggests that Flight decks will last several times longer than a 7-ply, making them a great value as well as a superior performing skateboard.
