I started with one adapter and now have 4 custom setups with the adapters. They range broadly like a sleek 31-inch Loaded Coyote, an Earthwing Mini Glider,
a 36-inch Landyachtz Super Chief Pintail and 46-inch Sector 9 pintail. They all offer something unique and have situations for which any one could be the favorable choice, even though one is my favorite ride and one is dedicated to wet pavement from rain.
Very satisfied with the Waterborne adapters. I wouldn't have bought 4 otherwise. For those who have no choice but to ride on wet pavement, Eastside rain wheels work great and don't slip much unless you want them to. Another tip is that you may want to clean the adapter and add fresh grease to the bearings more often is use ride a dedicated board on the wet road.
Got my Surf & Rail Adapter high perforamance pack, fixed it on to my S9 longboard with paris V3/4president wheel - it was magical.
Smooth and very intense/tight carve with no wheel bite. So smooth and agile that no kicks required, just kept surfing on the curb with slight pumps! Absolutely in love with them.
Customer service by Tommy was tip top, missed the promo for waterborne Tee after my combo purchase but Tommy readily obliged, couldn't be any more thankful.
Now I'm happily surfing the neighbourhood in my white Waterborne Tee and gladly helping to promote the surf adapters! Definitely looking forward to more innovation/new products by your team!
I put it on a common budget e-skate. Result: amazing streetsurf with remote control. 100% worth the price.
I'm a beginner to skating & surfing - bought the scorpio after getting some surf lessons back in the summer and enjoying the waves I managed to catch.
Progress was pretty rapid despite a slow and uncertain start. After a few days' practice I'm able to pump up mild gradients and do some full loops without pushing in my local skatepark.
The board is a lot more capable than me, it can do very tight turns and it feels more stable than I thought it would when pumping or drifting down a gradient. It's mechanically smooth with no squeaks. The big wheels roll over small debris easily without stalling.
Overall really happy so far, looking forward to getting more confident.
Installed on my cruiser, detailed and easy to follow instructions.
The product is really fun and I feel like my board got upgraded to the next level! Cruising, carving and pumping is so fun now
I put these adapters on my big cruiser board - a Krooked deck around 10.5" wide and 34" long with 10" wide Independent trucks. Running 70mm/70a wheels right now but waiting on 64mm/77a wheels to show up in the mail.
Learning to pump this setup has drastically helped my actual surfing. Like, it's a revelation. I'm able to start pumping immediately after popping up and make sections I never would have made just waiting for the wave to push me down the line. Running highlines, going faster, and throwing much more spray than ever before in the water. Best of all, no more "pumping" the nose straight up and down to zero effect! It's all in the hips - side to side baby!
At the skatepark, I still kind of feel like the weird old guy among all the kids riding actual skateboards but that's going away as I get more comfortable with speed, maintaining speed, bigger turns, and slides.
It's so addictively fun I'm budgeting skate time during my week.
Already thinking about setting up a second board a little differently with Waterborne Adapters as a dedicated skatepark whip and keeping this first board for the street.
The adapters are very well made, impressive, really, and they totally transform your board. SO WORTH IT if you are considering a surfskate and already have a board and some trucks to use. Super psyched on this purchase. Totally recommend giving it a go if you're curious.
Installed on my pintail longboard easily. Really enjoying it so far!
At 1st I tried it with my drop deck longboard, and although it moved relatively fast, soon I was getting tired because I was doing a lot of leg work to pump it. So, I tried it on a Fish Skate, and it moves like the wind! It's awsome...
This product will elevate your deck an inch or more. So you will need to adjust your step considerably on the push.
The product is extremely sturdy and well made. Carves like a dream and makes surfing on land feel smooth and fun.
Got one and rail adapter on my Loaded Coyote shortboard with 150mm Paris trucks and large core 63mm wheels and responds great. Have another on my dedicated wet pavement board with Eastside rain wheels as I live in the Pacific Northwest. Both are great fun for an old guy like me and keep racking on the miles each week while blasting tunes and grinning ear to ear. Great 'no impact' workout and great cross-strainer. Gotta run and take out that shortboard before it rains.
This is my 4th Waterborne Surf Adapter I added to the quiver. Put this on a 36" Downhill board this time for distance along with a push pole. It rocks even up hill!
The other 3 have been on so many combinations of my 55 decks it's just wild how fun the Waterborne is on every board imaginable...from pool decks, longboards, a crappy Dept store deck(one of the best), one with Sky Hooks, to a monster Kuhuna Creations as big as a surf board! Well done Waterborne!!!
I have been foil surfing alot and my regular surfing pumping got bad. I started pumping with waterBorne and went surfing after. I was surfing better 1st wave after using this product! It feels well built. Safe at the speeds ive attempted. But mainly super fun! Thank ypu for an amazing produt that ships quickly in an awesome little package. I cant wait till some freinds get them too!
The Surf and Rail Adapter kit is the best money I spent on my new skateboard set up. The quality and design is excellent and the fact that it uses a bushing instead of a spring is wonderful. I have a 43" pintail with 50 degree gullwing trucks and the board is the closest skateboard to surfing I have ever tried... all thanks to this awesome awesome product. The ride height is definitely the one drawback, but it is by far worth the tradeoff. I have yet to try the adapters on a shorter wheelbase but look forward to some fun sessions when I do. Buy Waterborne's product, I highly doubt you will regret it. I love mine, absolutely love it.
Attached it to my landyatchz surfskate board. Best decision so far. Gave me more angle and pumping rhythm.
The waterborne truck adapter is revolutionary! Love using it on the sidewalks and plan to master it on the local pump track! Norrin Radd would approve!
