is a shaped street deck with a kick in the nose and tail. The familiar deck makes this a great cross over board for anybody who has a background in park or street skating, and has taken an interest in Surfstyle. Lean hard onto your toes or heels, drop a hand onto the ground, and let the LEO wrap a tight circle around you.
Very nice product and of good quality. The only improvement that it needs are the bolts that connects the adapter to the board, they need to be a bit longer.
The extender does a fantastic job at getting the wheel base away from your enclosure and reducing the chances of wheel bite by a lot!
Awesome product matched with awesome service! Thanks Waterborne!
I've been surfing for 20 odd years and longboard skating for 15. Where I live the surf is very inconsistent so it's difficult to make progress. I'd avoided surfskates thinking they were a gimick but one session on a waterborne setup and I'm a total convert. It feels very similar to surfing and I can't imagine a better way to cross-train. I'll definitely be buying another kit so I can have multiple setups.
Recently got the Taurus complete. So dope! This thing shreds! I was on a Z-flex longboard with the adapter and risers in the back and love it, however this Taurus with the rail in back blows it out of the water. Two different styles of riding for sure but the Taurus is super carvy and way more exciting to ride.
Recently got these Living Water wheels. Shaweet! In the past couple months I have tried 3 different style wheels and by far these are the best. Grippy and roll over everything like a monster truck!
The black bamboo is lush. The size and shape are lovely. It's so light too. Guess it make sense your guys have gone for light weight material for the deck given the adaptor/truck combo is heavier than most setups. It would even be better if it had a bit more concave.
I use these bearings on a couple of my surf skates and especially on my esk8. Super smooth ride and they’re my favorite bearings on the market
After a good bit of modification and running to my local hardware store 3 times (dremmel and bandsaw were also needed) and about $100 in much stiffer bushings (for the trucks and rail) I do like the way they are designed and the all around "carviness" of the board now, and it finally feels stable ... also for reference I'm about 230 lbs..... my biggest suggestion .... SEND HARDWARE THATS LONG ENOUGH TO GO THROUGH THE SPACERS/ADAPTER YOU SEND IN THE KIT FOR EBOARDS
I ride a dkp exway atlas and my kids were jealous that their rkp flex and rkp x1 max don't make tight turns. They would complain their boards didn't turn as good as mine.
Well now their boards turn even tighter than mine and there are no more complaints!
This surf kit unlocks a whole new level of maneuverability in any boosted or longboard style esk8. The staff even worked with me to adapt for my plug ports by customizing some riser plates to fit!
Grade A service! Above and beyond. Highly recommend!
Great value. Thanks Waterborne, for high quality easy maintenance stuff!
These trucks and wheels are super rad and a total game changer. Smooth ride on all types of surfaces - flat pavement has never been so fun!
I first tried putting it on a sector 9 downhill cruiser board and I think the truck width made it very difficult to create and maintain forward momentum, so they I stuck it on a Santa Cruz old school deck with some indies and creating momentum is a lot easier, right now all I have are really hard skatepark wheels which will cause the tail to slide out while pumping but I plan on buying some softer wheels to prevent that in the future.
There is nothing like this out there waterborne is taking the surfskate world up a level yet again!!!
This made riding my electric board waaaayyyy more fun and turns are more fluid. Thanks waterborne!
Black Bamboo New Mexican Adventure
Black Bamboo surfskates
We decided to make two surfskates with a classic design, quality feel, and modern style.
is a High Performance take on the cruiser board. The deck shape will be familiar to anybody who's ripped a cruiser through a college campus, across a beach town, or flown down a traffic-free mountain road. The twist on the PISCES is the Rail Adapter on the rear, which enables a much higher ceiling for carving speed. 15mph is the money zone on this board.
