TAURUS Widebody Black Bamboo

$242.00

Taurus promises to bring focused surfskating ergonomics to the deck shape. The 10.5" wide concave deck has a kicktail for tight maneuvers. Its 32" length and 16.7" or 19" wheelbase means that it will generate speed quickly from a stand still, and hold a fast pace while pumping.

I don't usually bother writing reviews but.....

....this warrants one. I've tried a number of skateboard related designs that were supposed to recreate surfing/snowboarding over the years, from the painfully slow Flowlab single curved axle boards in the 90s to full on short turny slalom boards with khiro whites up front. They all had some strengths but none of them really delivered. I mean I still like running slalom cones once in a while but most of those experiments are either collecting dust or are long gone. So I ordered the surf adapter/rail adapter because I just can't help myself, and stuck it on an old 35" Sector 9 with indys and soft wheels, just to see what it's about. Meh. It was impressively turny but there was still something missing when it comes to recreating THAT feeling. It could easily have petered out there, but one last roll of the dice....I got the Taurus wide deck (19" wheelbase), swapped the indys out for Randall II 150s and stuck a set of old school red Kryptonics on it. Wow. Now I'm addicted. The level of predictable and functional edge angle is pretty astounding. The board pumps effortlessly, picking up speed uphill just through turning, no more pushing. And when you're a lazy tosser like me that's important! Most of all though.....it's smooth....it flows. And that's what drew me to surfing in the first place and then to snowboarding....flow. Grab a rail, get inside the turn and feel the flow. This thing is definitely worth it.

Great Carving Ability

This board makes surfskating waaaaaay easier for me! It has the perfect width for throwing out slides(which I have gotten significantly better at with this board). I have had the most fun on this board compared to my other boards.

Libra & Taurus

Narrative

There are days where nothing goes your way- days that make you feel like a total loser. Maybe you knock over a trashcan backing out of your driveway and run over your dog pulling back in. Whatever it may be, just know that there's always a way to put a positive spin on things. So pick up that trash, sort the recycling, and dig a nice grave for your dog... And if your life is headed downhill, you might as well be riding a skateboard.

 





LIBRA

This is by far the most responsive surfskate you'll ever ride. With concave from nose to tail, and the shortest wheelbase of any Waterborne surfskate. You're guaranteed insane amounts of manueverability. The pointed nose and tail resemble a surfboard, and give the LIBRA additional style points.


TAURUS

This board sports a wide deck with Medium concave from the trar truck to the wide tail. It is capable of anything from cruising to shredding steep transitions. The rear Rail Adapter allows for more rail-to-rail lean, meaning maximum performance and forward pumping drive.  

Performance oriented

Ergonomics

TAURUS & LIBRA feature thoughtfully designed concaves and treatments to create surfskates that are ideal for performance manuvers.
