DESCRIPTION

This upgrade kit is designed to fit any skateboard and drastically increase its surf-style performance.

The Surf Adapter™ on your front truck gives your board the tight carving ability that you need for surf training or surfstyle riding. The rear truck Rail Adapter gives a skateboards rear truck, whether it's traditional kingpin or reverse kingpin, more lean. A skateboard with both the Surf and Rail Adapters feels so buttery smooth because you are separated from the ground by vibration dampening urethane bushings. It feels like there are cushions under both feet, lending the board to confidently turn tightly even on rough concrete.

The combination of Surf and Rail Adapter makes a skateboard much more stable at high speed that traditional skateboard trucks alone. They effectively eliminate speed wobbles by making the front wheels trail a leading pivot, just like the suspension on a car. The rear truck becomes much less squirrelly because the Rail Adapter stabilizes it's turning and makes the function of the rear truck all about grip. The board will feel very natural even at speed making drawn out carves.

All hardware necessary for installation is included.

Shred the gnar

Definitely a game changer but on my Meepo mini 2S. Unfortunately I don’t have enough room for the rail adapter but no complaints from the front side 🤙

Love this more than anything except my partner especially walking

Best thing I ever got for my
Board. Took me a day to get used to now I can’t live without it.

There is a temporary fix that works well for the rail adapter rattle—cut small crescent moon shaped chunks of old hard bushings and wedge them between the gaps in the top plate and king kin. You have to unscrew both nuts and remove the washer/bushing to get to it. Mine only lasts for a few weeks before it needs replaced but I spoke with someone and I think they’re working on a more permanent fix.

I will say my normal skateboard feels like a breadstick mixed with a steel girder now and I can barely stay on it now cus it’s so stiff. I never have to push anymore I carve everywhere on some huge OJ wheels

Incredibly fun addition to a longboard!

I added the surf and rail adaptors to my LandYachtz Dipper with Bear trucks and it was a huge value add. The longboard still performs wonderfully, but I now have tighter turns and the ability to pump. It was a huge upgrade!

Style, style, and More style

The Surf Adapter™ gives your board a fluid maneuverability that allows you effortless flow from heel to toe rail to rail. You can link up turns into one endless wave. The system is very intuitive to learn and your own skating style, as well as the characteristics of your own board will be enhanced.

Waterborne vs. the Competition

When it comes to dual pivot surf trucks there are four major systems. Carver C7, YOW Meraki, Smoothstar Thruster and Waterborne Surf Adapter. Waterborne's Surf Adapter is the newest system and the only one that uses a high rebound urethane bushing, just like a skate truck. the Surf Adapter does not rely on a heavy metal mechanical spring and linkages. As a result turns feel fluid and limitless. Furthermore steel springs are susceptible to rust. They need to be maintained and replaced frequently, and there are dozens more moving parts.

Lifetime Guarantee

The Surf Adapter and Rail Adapter have been very well engineered and are guaranteed for the life fo the product. We stress test the Surf and Rail to 1,500 lbs (680Kg) to ensure that they will not break under any circumstance. Each part is made from aircraft grade aluminum for its toughness and lightness, then heat cycled yo ensure stresses are released from within the alloy.

What board is right?

Generally speaking you are going to have the most fun on a board that you are already comfortable with! A board that feels good under your feet is going to feel familiar, yet enhanced with the ability to carve like a surfboard, enter and recover from power slides very naturally, and pump to generate speed. Our riders have tried just about every single setup imaginable, many of which have documented their experiences on specific boards in our review catalogue.
