The team at 321 Kiteboarding has been riding Dervish boards for a while now and have fallen in love with the construction, flex, and comfort. This seems to be our go to board for riding down and checking the surf or running to the local coffee shop. Long, wide and smooth. It's Bamboo! With 3 flex options, you will find one that works for you. We promise.
Flex 1: 170-270+ lbs / 75-122+ kg
Flex 2: 100-185+ lbs / 45-84+ kg
Flex 3: 75-150+ lbs / 35-68+ kg
Length: 42.8" / 109 cm
Width: 9" / 22.9 cm
Wheelbase: 31.5" / 80 cm
Deck: 3.0 - 3.6 lbs / 1.4 - 1.6 kg
Complete: 7.0 - 7.6 lbs / 3.2 - 3.4 kg
Quality boards mean quality parts, and Loaded mounts Orangatang wheels...what a difference.
In 2007, the Dervish was our first venture into drop through construction and an opportunity to create a flexy, bamboo composite carver with the versatility to handle a variety of riding styles. Five years later, we’ve revisited this flagship board with new performance aspirations in mind.
With a slightly wider platform than its predecessor, the Dervish Sama balances comfort, edge control, and responsiveness. Combined with a more pronounced concave profile, the extra width enhances turn initiation and slide control. We added subtle nose and tail kicks to increase pop and lock your feet in for freestyle tricks. The neck and drop through cutout were also updated for increased durability under hard riding. A six-piece grip tape pattern provides enhanced control at the kicks and facilitates comfortable footwork maneuvers on the standing platform without interfering with the board’s flex pattern.
