I have been riding the Fish for about a year now and I just had the opportunity to spend a weekend testing and riding every single board that Hamboards has to offer. As soon as I walked into the garage and my eyes met the Hamboards quiver I felt like a kid in a candy shop. The formerly organized selection of boards had created a feeding frenzy as my friend Hannah and I pulled every board off the rack to cruise, trade and try again. Oh, and there’s one more thing- we were riding boards with the brand new Hamboards Spring Torsion Carving Trucks (HST’s).
These brand new HST’s change the riding experience in every board from the tiny Biscuit to the 6’6” Classic. The HST’s make the Hamboards super responsive while adding stability. Simply put, the HST’s set you up for success if you like to challenge your board and riding ability.
While riding the Biscuit the new HST’s were instantly apparent with quick, snappy turns and carving. The Classic became a breeze to cross step on with less sway when you walk. And all the boards in between became the most wonderful hybrid of snap and security. HST’s connect you to the board in a way that lets you become part of the pavement- from the push off the ground to the bend in your knees the board becomes a ride that is working with you and for you, not against you.
When you surf it’s hard to end a session- you want to end on a good wave and then when you get one you are too stoked to call it quits. These new HST’s will create an experience that will have you hamming until you wear through the soles of your shoes and feet- you won’t want to stop.

Often times we find ourselves asking probing questions like,
Why does my face hurt?
Does this make me look fat?
Is it possible that I could be an aardvark in disguise?
Anders Hamborg answers all these questions and more as we dig deeper into what it means to be someone who will one day ride Hamboards on Mars.

It's not everyday you get to flash back 50 years. The Hamborg crew got to experience just such a time warp riding our classic longboards around and thru the Huntington Beach Classic Car Show, and it felt like the boards we were riding belonged right there. Hamboards may not have 50 years of existence under its belt but we somehow are throwbacks to that same era. All our boards have a unique blend of modern performance with a retro look and feel, made for classic surf-style skateboard riding.

Just a normal day of wave sliding and pavement riding with the Hamboard crew, using the longboards that make the transition between skate and surf seamless.

Time warp back to the early days. Back before any of the smaller boards, before we used bamboo and before any of us had discovered what a hair cut was, we were riding the Classics and having a great time.

It's been a long time, a REAL longtime coming, but we are happy we and you made it. It's here our new website. We're pretty excited about and hope you are too.
Stay tuned for all the going-ons here at Hamboards. We'll be sure to keep you in the loop on any new boards or events, and expect to see some fun filled photos of us doing what we love, which of course will include surfing the streets on these crazy concrete wave riding machines we call Hamboards.
