Skating as you know it will never be the same.
Surf dynamics and cruise control jammed in an affordable, beach washed surf-skateboard they call the ‘show-off’.
“Nothing comes close (even at twice the price)”
Influence nature. Twist gravity. And transform the sidewalk into a reef break. The 3ft9in Huntington Hop surfskate board does something inexplicable every time you hop on it.
The stunning deck wears a vintage beach look and offers head-to-toe surf-skate fundamentals and surf-dynamics. The 16mm 9-ply-birch deck allows the skater superior glide with extreme carving and an untamed rail-to-rail thrash experience.
Cooler Features. Better Thrash.
The original version of Huntington Hop was stripped down recently, repurposed and saw a complete overhaul with new design features primed to negotiate paves by eliminating slightest wobble.
Step on pure nostalgia with H-Hop’s timeless 60s surf-look inspired by Birdwell Beach Britches.
Mounted on 14 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 66mm cast polyurethane wheels are buttery smooth and super grippy.
All the thrash, freestyling and rips jammed in an all-round surfskate board at an astonishingly low price.
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 .
