Hold on to your rails because this rad little wave-washed board will push you to the edge of your imagination.
This old school swallow tail fish shortboard is compact and responsive. Pescadito (Esp. Little Fish) The pointed nose and swallow tail reminds you to respect the aggressive nature of this little “Bonita”. i. If you’re not quite ready for the full size Hamboard Fish, this Pescadito brings you the same vibe in a smaller and snappier package.
Natural 3 ply bamboo (or 8 ply Baltic Birch depending on the model) is painstakingly laminated, decorated then topped with a durable UV Resistant Grip Coating that helps skaters stay securely rooted during heavy slides. Grab Rails and Wheel Wells are in just the right places. Barefoot friendly.
But there’s something more that really makes this unique.
HAMBOARDS HST SURFSKATE TRUCKS
A 40° pivot axis angle gives 30° degrees of board lean and allows the ultimate rail-to-rail flow and extreme carving angles. Hamboards chocolate 66mm cast polyurethane wheels are buttery smooth and super grippy.
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.

Same Lean, Different Rotation
With our HST truck system, you can purchase trucks with three different pivot angles. You can see that our three baseplates provide the same amount of lean. You can also see that the 0° truck does not rotate at all. The 20° truck rotates about 10° in each direction and the 40° truck rotates about 20° in each direction .
