You can really feel the difference once you put it on.
Was unsure at first about the screws because the instructions mentioned a blue bag but all of them were clear.
I was having a hard time finding a sustainable surfskate board. For normal skateboarding, I've moved to bamboo skateboards but traditional boards have wheelbases that are too short and long boards are too long. It's very hard to find a bamboo surfskate board. This carbon board is ideal because it has has cutouts in just the right places to maximize banking angle and it should last for a very long time. One thing I might add is a tail protector because carbon will get messed up quickly when dragged on concrete.
I ordered the surf and rail adapter to use on a Loaded Omakase with Paris V3 trucks. It has opened me up to an entirely new longboarding discipline. I was honestly hesitant to try it because it seemed almost gimmicky, and I wasn't sure I'd find it fun enough to do more than once through a parking lot. It was a blast! I find myself using it almost as much as my commuter board because I can take it out to a local park, parking lot, or even my driveway. It's a surprisingly good workout too. My only frustration came with how it's sort of tough to put on because I can't use my skate tool to tighten it down. Other than that, it's been amazing. P.S. Tommy at Waterborne was awesome. Great customer service, from answering initial inquiries to even helping with setup and tips for use. Very helpful!
I cannot overstate how much I LOVE the Waterborne Surf Adapter and Rail Adapter. 3 months ago, I bought my first Waterborne Adapter, and I was instantly hooked! I have surf-skated 6 days a week since then as these adapters created a feeling of arching fat turns that reminds me of both surfing and skiing. Waterborne's system has brought sport back into my life that I LOVE! I now have 3 complete boards with Waterborne's Surf and Rail Adapters, and I have also given 4 of the adapters to friends and family. I'll admit it: I'm obsessed with surf skating now because of Waterborne's products. One more nugget of information: I hadn't skated consistently in 35 years until I got my Waterborne's. I'm 54 years old.
Definitely a good adapter
Very fast shipping, very good product.......best surf skate adapter in the market
Love carving on my longboard with this adapter. Whole new experience. Thanks for such an amazing project!
Nothing else to say that’s has not been already said about this! Title says it all. Love the versatility and being able to turn a fav board of mine to a surfskate board is pretty cool.
Surf skating have been hitting Thailand hard since the pandemic last year, so I had many chances to try out many boards from different brands including famous brands like Carver (C7), Smoothstar and Yow, by far Waterborne is my personal favorite. The feeling is so smooth and buttery. Thanks to Braille Skateboarding for introducing Waterborne to me! I'm also a big supporter of cool, innovative startup companies and Waterborne will surely be another one on my list. Way to go Patrick and his team!
For a few years I was searching for the perfect way to surfskate and I found it. The Waterborne performance pack is freaking awesome! I saw the YouTube reviews and I was discussing it with a friend who's from the U.S. cause over here in The Netherlands they don't sell it (yet). He brought it for me and I put it under my Globe Big Blazer cruiser. Tested it out and I have to say it's just perfect! You can put as much lean to it as you want and have no wheel-bite. Very deep carves and snappy surf maneuvers feel very natural without losing stability. I went (mellow) downhill with it and absolutely no speed wobbles. With my Globe stubby with Revenge Alpha II trucks I don't have to try this. I love the Waterborne adapter and surf rail because it gains as much speed while pumping just like my Carver Yago Dora with CX trucks but now I'm able to do deeper carves, ride even more smooth. Today I am going to test if it also takes a ramp or obstacle as easy as my Carver CX. Until so far I am very happy. Great job Waterborne!
Fluid Carving, like crazy fluid. Def fun for me. I was questioning getting it, very happy i chose to get it.
super fun addition to skateboarding
I got this board with the rail adapter custom mounted and I highly recommend. The board is super smooth compared to a traditional wood deck. Overall the product is great and the customer service is amazing!
Purchased for my husband for Christmas and he is in love with it! He’s so impressed as how it feels to being out in the water surfing & he looks great doing it!
