Classic Boards and Cars

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. 

Bundled Up and Barefoot

Looking back I definitely would have worn some shoes (and a helmet) for the whole Lombard street thing. Those bricks were sharp. At this time in my life I had only made it up to The City maybe once before. So while everyone was staring at a giant surfboard on wheels, I was taking in the beauty of the place and trying not to kill myself going around blind corners. It's time to get back up here. I'm pretty sure they have repaved that whole area around Fort Point.

Bridge Ditching... It's a new thing.

Strange things happen when you are landlocked. When deprived of oceans and waves sometimes we can resort to extreme measures. I found myself in one such situation while attending a school up in Northern California. Turns out the Sacramento River is pretty cold. -Gus Hamborg

 

Hamboards Girls | Shades of Summer

Being a family business run by 5 sons, over the years the female aspect of Hamboards may have been slightly lacking. It only took Gus getting married for us to finally pull together a video entirely devoted to the celebration of Hamboarding Girls. We hope you like it.
