The KING of all skateboards!
This board is made of natural bamboo board and is 6ft 2in long and 15in wide so it truly gives you space for surfing footwork.
Are you looking for a true longboard surf simulator to unleash the beach or hone your surfing skills?
If YES, then negotiate the pave with this extra large beauty for an untamed surf ecstasy.
What’s in it?
The Classic features a stunning hand-crafted deck with surfboard dynamics. The patented 200mm HST Carving trucks with our strongest gold springs and massive 97mm cast polyurethane wheels offer a ride that is shockingly familiar to longboard surfers and longboard SUP Surfers alike. This truly the world’s finest longboard surf style board on wheels.
This board will transport you straight back to the surfline and help you master pop ups, drop knee turns, toes over nose, cut backs, bottom turns and hanging heels (if you’re daring).
For land paddling, this extra long and wide deck allows you to paddle prone, so you can switch arms without the need to switch feet.
This board harkens back to the early days of surfing, while the renewable and sustainable bamboo plywood is perfectly weighed, flexible and designed to sustain stable cruise propulsion.
Mounted on massive 24 mm riser blocks are a pair of patented HST carving trucks with 40° pivot axis angle baseplates and 200mm axle hangers which give 30° degrees of board lean and allows the ultimate rail-to-rail flow, board lean and extreme carving angles.
On the road, the Hamboards signature chocolate brown 97mm cast polyurethane wheels are buttery smooth and literally kick-out small rocks before you can ride over them.
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 .
