Hamboards On Mars

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. 

Almost Something

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. 

 

This is What We Do.

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

 

The North Pole comes to the South Side

When the hamboard fam was growing up we all used to pile into our Dads VW thing that he had converted in to a "one-horse-open-sleigh" and cruise around the neighborhood. This year Santa took over the Thing for his Hamboard Christmas deliveries and pretty much took over downtown. It was a near riot. Don't miss out on the fun. Santa is taking care of all shipping charges this year. One more reason to snag your favorite Hamboard or T-Shirt.  

 

The very first Ham video.

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.

Hamboard Properties

Look at the gem we found in the bottom of the Hamboards video vault!  Scientific discussion with supporting clinical field trials that not only can you have one of the best gluten free times of your life on a Hamboard, but that bikini clad girls will push you down the boardwalk in a Jacruizzi.  

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.
