Surfboards are flat with fins in the rear; a very simplistic design. The design of the board allows a surfer to rotate their upper body, pivoting off of the fins to make turns. A surfer can slide the board from left to right to pump and create speed. Normal skate or longboards have fixed trucks, and in combination with the hard pavement it does not exactly mimic the free-flowing, natural experience that surfers feel.
For years, skateboard shapers and designers have tried to develop a more natural board that feels similar to a surf or snowboard – and they succeeded! We now use these boards to improve our surf techniques in the water, let’s start shredding those pavements together!
