ULTRA PUMPABLE Hamboard w/ Super Snappy HST Spring Trucks

DESIGNED FOR TRUE RAIL TO RAIL ENGAGEMENT

26in x 14in  (16in wheel base) Swallow Kick-tail, Concave, Five Ply Birch Deck w/ clear grit.

HST Carving Trucks with 30 degrees of board lean... 

62mm x 45mm 78-80A black cast PU carving wheels.

NOTICE: This board has 30 degrees of board lean on a very short 16 inch wheelbase.  This thing screams TURN!   "If you do not understand what this means, or why it matters, for your own safety, you should NOT ride this board.  


***NOT for BEGINNERS***

This board has insane turning capabilities. You gotta be prepared to ride this board with your shoulders and hips as if engaging your rail on trim. Surf: Don’t Skate.  Even for highly skilled skaters, helmets and pads are recommended.  You know your skill level and you know your own limits.  - We love your style but we also want you to take care of yourself. As the saying goes “Easy does it!” We don’t want you going all out on your first ride. Get to know your board and bond with it before RIPPING it to the MAX.  When you’re ready, practice your blow tails and tail whips all day long, but skate within your limits and wear safety gear to keep you safe.  

These are not swivel trucks, unlike many other "surfskate trucks", but rather our patented HST spring trucks.  Most of the pumping action is driven by your front leg/foot, and so we provide our 25lbf Gold springs.  

The concave and swallow kick-tail allow you to get leverage on the deck for tail washes and 180's.  If you do pull-off a spin, you can ride the HST trucks backwards: we don't recommend ride backwards with swivel truck surfskates and surfskate adapters. 

 

HST Trucks are different

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

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.
