ARTISTS:

KANAGAWA by Ai Artist Pedro Mazepah (BRASIL)

This artwork was made by prompting an Artificially Intelligent program to turn a video of Italo Ferreira into a Japanese masterpiece. The resulting video has been seen tens of millions of times over by awed audiences across the world. Key frames fro the video have been composited into this graphic depicting a dreamy Japanese pointbreak at sunrise. 

MY MIND by Jovi Cauwels (Belgium)

Introducing 'My Mind': a skateboard deck illustration that represents a time when I was living carefree in Baleal, Portugal. 
This design was created during the spring and summer months when drawing and longboarding were my main activities. It illustrates the longboard culture mixed with bohemian elements that I draw throughout all my work. 

I believe that I can only become true to myself when I follow my passion and purpose. For years I tried to live the standard expectations of society and it’s just not working for me. I feel there is more to discover in myself and the world. I only want to settle for a life that is fully aligned with how I feel inside.  It's far from the easiest road, but one worth traveling.

FLOW GLIDE by Graffiti Artist Socrate (FRANCE)

In both graffiti and surfskate, it’s all about that street vibe and pure freedom you know. Walls become our canvas, and the streets, our waves. Surfskating is like cruising the asphalt with style, and graffiti, it's our way of leaving our mark in the streets. It's like our boards and paint cans are having a conversation, creating a unique blend of urban creativity. We leave our art on the concrete, and that's how we ride the city : in our own way.

TEAHUPOO QUEEN by Tattoo Artist NK Tattoo (TAHITI)

Niko, aka Nk, founder of the "Nk Tattoo Tahiti"  Shop, based in Tahiti, island of french Polynesia. Creating tattoos is much more than a passion for me. Here in one of the cradles of surfing, the connection with the ocean is natural. It is not uncommon to come across a majestic manta ray when you go surfing, even in the Hava'e pass, at the mythical spot of Teahupoo. I was delighted to be able to create this board for Waterborne. Good ride !

INFINITE ROADS by Mixed Media Artist Raul Casado (MALLORCA) 

Illustrator and graphic designer based in Majorca. I am in love with the sea, the waves and nature, colorful designs, and looking for sunsets and sunrises to be able to immerse ourselves in the Mediterranean. The illustration aims to reflect the experience of good times. Gliding with the skateboard in search of the perfect wave in an idyllic setting. The rainbow on a sunny day, accompanied by your faithful and inseparable friend, each element evokes the feeling of happiness and freedom experienced while riding the Waterborne surfskate. The excitement and joy of those unforgettable moments, where everything it's perfect and time stands still.

Good deck, but watch out for wheel bite

Got the Surfskate Love combo for christmas and it's great. One issue however is when using the waterborne surf adapter i had wheel bite a few times. Also had wheel bite with the rail adapter so i've swapped out the trucks with one of my carver boards (surf adapter on carver deck, cx truck on taurus) and now i love them both.

It was a present for my husband and he loved it!!!

The FIN System™ is a revolutionary Patented new upgrade for the Surf Adapter that allows riders to alter the pivot angle of their Surf Adapter. This kit can be added to any existing skateboard setup! 

The FINs can be added in 2 configurations, in addition to a Standard Surf Adapter configuration. One configuration is Mega Pump and the other is Super Carve. 

THREE Distinct riding modes

Each FIN SETTING will be characterized by different pivot angle and ride height. The FIN System has set a new standard for customization of a Surfskate, by allowing for the adjustment of the angle of the primary pivot itself. This angle is the biggest factor in determining how a Surf truck will feel. 

FIN System

Set your FINs to Super Carve for an increased responsiveness and high performance. Super Carve is a very lively setting that emphasizes how tightly the Surf Adapter can turn within a space, and carve it to pieces!

Remove your FINs to utilize the Standard Surf Adapter Geometry. This geometry was something that we created with the goal of achieving the most universal surf style performane for riders across the world. It's still as fun as ever to ride the Standard setting!

Set your FINs to Mega Pump for a dialed back high performance cruising feel. The Surf Adapter won't lean as deeply into turns, and the flatter deck angle allows you to gently pump this board up to high speeds with minimal exertion, and maximal forward propultion. It can still carve with a distinctly Waterborne fluidity.

What are FINs?

FINs snap into the Surf Adapter's truck holding Pivot arm. They effectively change the angle that the arm rotates on, and in turn change the way that the wheels move as you press on your rails. This is what gives you a totally new feeling.

DESIGN INSIGHT

The Surf Adapter is an extremely robust design that has been mounted onto everything from 12 inch skateboards to 12 foot long skateboards! It has been paired with every truck under the sun, and riden by people on all 7 continets. We believe that the Surf Adapter's design language, aids in it's mission for universal appeal. This rebust design lan guage is why the FIN System works. Had we taken a more common approach, had we coppied an existign design, or had we put any less consideration, we would not have been able to add these clever little wedges to the Surf Adaper without significant further modification. It is only becuase we found the best solution, the bushing, that we can change the pivot angle and still have the same functionality and resilience.

Customize your Surfskate

HOW BUSHINGS AFFECT YOUR PERFORMNCE

You can further customize the feel of your Surfskate by swapping the bushings in your Surf Adapter and Rail Adapter. Bushings can make a board feel more stable for a biginner, or fine tune the performance of a pro setup.

HOW TRUCKS AFFECT YOUR PERFORMNCE

You can further customize the feel of your Surfskate by choosing between which trucks (TKP or RKP) are mounted to your Surf Adapters.
