Surfing Recreates You
Explore Your Greatest Self
As a boy, I was led to the surfboard by my father - Doc” Paskowitz”. He would say, “Abe, this is where you’ll discover your TRUE SELF.
He was right. I found Life’s deepest truths unfolding on the surfboard.
“There was a relationship there. A Thirst.”
Flat days and landlocked van trips were unbearable. I just NEEDED some waves, a zen high and a “Í’m fine” buzz.
Skateboards provided a much-needed relief on these dull days.
Sidewalk Surfing was Born Crude
Skateboarding was born out of the urge to surf the sidewalks. But for a long time, it fell short.
“The trucks always seemed too tight, and the boards were way too narrow and short.
Longboard skateboards evolved, but still had the same limitations, too narrow and too tight.”
Someone’s Always Making Waves in this World
Decades later. I presented for the first time, an independent genre - ‘Surf-Skating.
The idea was an instant phenomenon.
But the application came with limitations.
Something was missing …. Engaging the rail.
Hamboards. Surf-Skate Revelation.
Pete Hamborg, a fireman and surfer. And his family.
Years of trial and error. Frustrations. A driveway mishap. A land-board crushed by an SUV.
AND THE FIRST SURF-SKATEBOARD PROTOTYPE IS BORN THAT ACTUALLY SIMULATES WAVE SURFING.
For the first time ever, the world had a long skateboard that actually cruised rail-to-rail like a surfboard.
From Garage to SHARK TANK
Demand for Hamboards got serious, first with the locals in Huntington Beach and then the word spread like fire within the surf community.
There was a business.
But Pete was an innovator, not a businessman. Things went haywire with a lot of excitement but no proper planning.
Enter Donnie, Pete’s cousin, a NASA engineer, entrepreneur and a self-made millionaire.
What happened next was beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
Here’s what happened. Watch video.
Donnie, Me (Abraham Paskowitz) and a Hamboards Re-Launch
When Donnie reached out to me for marketing ideas, I had never actually stepped on a Hamboard, but the very first time I rode a Hammy, I instantly saw a game-changer. It was the first time I got a floater on asphalt.
