The reason why the Surf Adapter is so special is because it enhances everything that made you love your skateboard in the first place. The skateboard deck, trucks, and wheels that you picked out will still feel familiar with the Surf Adapter, and you will still recognize the characteristics that make your skateboard unique.
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
