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.
You guys need to add specific instructions on installation if you're gonna charge someone over $100 for a product that's all I'm gonna say
So i bought this for the boosted mini X things i learned
- if you're getting this for the boosted board get the boosted board kit, the front surf adapter has extra holes drilled in so they actually do fit on de deck directly. this conversion kit is lacking the extra holes which you can drill yourself or you attach it to the carbon fiber attachment which is fine for my mini x since it give it a slightly longer wheel base. Get this if you do want to have the carbon fiber attachment on your board and want a slighly longer wheelbase.
-the carving game has changed, if you want more carvability? This is a damn good investment, maneuverability has been enhanced so much its ridiculous. Please if you know someone with the kit try it out the turning radius is insane.
- it shines to most on low-medium speeds
Thats where you can lean super hard to the point you can slide comfortably on orange kegels. Its super zippy and lets you zigzag with a safe feeling.
-very comfortable at high speeds,
I don't understand how but going top speed at the boosted mini X is somehow more stable, you don't wobble and carving is still comfortable a lot less than at slower speeds but still quite maneuverable.
-somehow sitting on your board is also a lot better than without the surf adapter its more stable and wobbles less(yes i know sitting on your board is weird but give it a try its fun imo)
P.S you might want to get extra bolts because i the ones that came with it either were too long and could scrape the rear adapter i just bought sizes were M5 X 35MM bolts and that gives it enough clearance
I saw many reviews as well as fellow DIY eboarders use the adaptor in their kits so I finally pulled the trigger. It was well worth the money. I use it on my daily commuter the Boosted V2 Dual+ XR and it is simply amazing. I can make sharper turns with adaptor and rail guard equipped then ever before. I can also make u turns and go around corners in hallways. A perfect upgrade to use around campus. Don't hesitate BUY IT THIS INSTANT!!!
The customer service is amazing and Patrick answered all my questions quickly. Will definitely buy this again for my other boards
