Cali nomad. You’ll think it’s a surfboard...
The world’s finest Fish surfskate. This board is no joke and screams carve the second you pop-up… Used by aspiring professional surf groms to practice pop ups, smacking the lip and backside rail grabs. The “sports car” of the Hamboards lineup. Some call it ‘The Shark’
Discover a tailor-made surfer’s dream board for those who relish heritage, class, speed and innovation.
Smaller, tighter with an hydrodynamic fish-tail, the board gives the rider flawless carving angles, extreme maneuverability, and a rich cruise experience. Snap the tail, hit the lip and drop knee diving turns that will cause instant permagrin.
Mounted on massive 24 mm riser blocks are a pair of patented 200mm HST carving trucks cast from virgin aluminum and heat treated for relentless thrash. A 40° pivot axis angle gives 30° degrees of board lean and allows the ultimate rail-to-rail flow, board lean and extreme carving angles. The narrower boards are more stable and the wider boards are more responsive, so this ultra wide deck is the most responsive in our line-up.
On the road, the Hamboards signature chocolate brown 90mm 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 .
