“Landyachtz has always been about making products to improve quality of life. From longboards designed to create an adventure out of getting to a university class, to race boards designed to win the world championships, Landyachtz has a proud history in design and manufacturing.” – https://landyachtzbikes.com
“Landyachtz Bikes are similar to Landyachtz boards as the bikes are developed with the same desire to design and build excellent products for the activities we believe in.”

“Landyachtz was started in the basement of the Blackcomb Ski Club cabin by two friends, Michael Perreten and Thomas Edstrand. Their mission was to make skateboards that would turn better and ride faster. Twenty years later, Landyachtz has over 60 employees, with spaces in East Vancouver and LA county, a manufacturing facility in Kimberly BC, and our recently opened flagship store in the Strathcona neighbourhood of Vancouver.”
“Landyachtz is a leader in a global community that pushes the boundaries of what is possible on a skateboard. Our desire to evolve the sport of skateboarding has led us to other exciting forms of transportation. Bicycles help us travel further, experience new terrain, and broaden our ability to discover. We believe that self-propelled transportation is not only good for ourselves, but good for the world. It requires no fuel and releases no pollutants into the air. The only by-products are a healthier life and a happier day.”
