Truly made for carving and maneuvering. The learning curve is a bit steep for casual once-in-a-while skaters, but it's a blast once you get past it! Don't forget your helmet and pads and to pay attention, falling can be pretty rough with the instability and added height of the board.
I've ridden other surf skates, but the Waterborne has a unique ride that for me is the best. Added to existing set-ups - just as described - keeps most of the ride characteristics of the original, but adds a whole other dimension of turn, flow, pump and deep carve. A great innovation!
Replacement Surf Adapter Bushing
I love these things. I installed this amazing invention onto my Sector 9 downhill board (Surf Adapter and Rail Adapter). I am in disbelief at how much deeper I can carve, and how I can generate generate momentum on flat stretches. This has transformed my whole neighborhood into my own playground. An easy to install must-have item.
I tried another brand surfskate truck in the past and really didn't like the rough mechanical feeling of the pumping action. I was skeptical but after seeing they use a urethane bushing in the adapter I gave surfskating a second chance and totally loved it. I just purchased 2 more sets for a few other unloved longboards so they might get more action now. You may not see it on the videos, but using these on really long longboards is crazy fun. I'm using them on a 4 foot long board and plan to try it on an 8 foot longboard soon.
Very satisfied, perfect service, fast delivery and GREAT product
I started enjoy the carving - it works perfectly. Never I stop riding around the town.
Works great. Easy to use
This surf adapter is everything I was hoping for. I wished for tighter turns and a better carve and that's what I got. Out of the box I tried this on my 44" PIN TAIL that I "land paddle" for exercises and fun on the downhill....same day I went straight into my local skate shop to get a shorter 32" cruiser deck and drove home to install the set up on that one.... rock and roll --what fun!! carving beasts !! I am back on the website to order another high performance pack. I will be on the pavement whenever the road is dry... So Now I will have both long board and surf skate set up with waterborne trucks ! stoked. I actually thought that the system might make my longboard too twitchy but it's awesome with the 180mm bear trucks and 90mm wheels. Power speed and the carve is sweet. This is inspiring me to get into the surf after many many years away. I recommend giving them a try ...and after all who just owns one board?
Surf and Rail Adapter High Performance Pack
It's pretty awesome, I can stay on my board when going through really tight turns now. I'd suggest getting the rear ones too, it completes the package and the board feels much more stable during high speed (at least for my experience).
Surf skate add on complete changes the way the skateboard feels and rides. We can do insane turns and can actually propel forward with continuous carvings. The guys at waterborne ship my order the same day and it got here within 3 days or so. They a really good product and includes all parts and instructions. Clever packaging too. Get both front and back adapters.
Took 20 minutes to install. Awesome upgrade. Makes my longboard so much more fun
