Speed, Carving and Pumping
No other surfskate feels like the Burst. You can carve and pump at speeds unimaginable with other boards.
The Burst is built with the HST 2.0 truck system. It has a 40° pivot axis in the front, a 20° pivot axis in the rear, and both trucks have 180mm hangers. It is 32" long and 10" wide with a 19" wheelbase. This setup makes the Burst pump like no other board we have ever made.
The deck is like no other we have ever sold. It has a concave and kicktail with a custom black griptape on top. The bottom of the decks feature original artwork created for us by the renown Florida artist, Ayden Stoefen.
More like a snowboard or surfboard than a surfskate
If you want another board that handles like a swivel truck surfskate, DON'T buy this one. You will be disappointed. The Burst does not ride like other surfskates. When you carve it feels like you are riding on the edge of the board, more like a snowboard or surfboard than a skateboard.
Carve with speed
The Burst is not a board to do a slow tight infinity loop. It is a board you can pump and carve hard and fast while still feeling you are in total control. The Burst has its own personality and wants to prove itself. It is definitely not a stereotypical surfskate.
HST Trucks are different
Most skateboard trucks have flexible bushings which allow them to flex and rotate. Our patented HST Trucks use stiff springs and spherical wave cams that translate axle rotation into spring compression. These massive springs store the energy then give right it back to you. You don't need to lift the front to turn, just turn the board. HST trucks have smooth consistent rotations. The springs give strength and stability that enable the wheels to glide over road imperfections like you wouldn't believe.
Rotation and Lean
Our patented HST Trucks were designed to simulate a surfboard on water. Do not expect them to feel like other skateboard trucks. They are so responsive that some people call them loose.
Our trucks rotate up to 20° in both directions and lean up to 30°. This movement is much greater than most other skateboard trucks.
When you turn on HST Trucks, you feel like you are riding on an airplane wing in a banked turn. You get the sense that you are riding on the edge of your board, much like it feels to ride on a snowboard or a surfboard.
They also give just enough of a snappy return to center and truly feel like surfing.
