High Performance Pack - Riptide - Waterborne Skateboards

High Performance Pack - Riptide


This upgrade kit is designed to fit any Riptide Electric Skateboard and drastically increase its maneuverability ...

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 skateboard's rear truck, 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 Riptide hardware necessary for installation is included. Installation time: 10 minutes.

Chasing that feeling

For some reason the feeling of acceleration is one of our primal intoxications. Maybe our ancient ancestors loved cliff jumping, or maybe theres a prehistoric cave loaded with sports cars, but it still remains that we all love to go fast. Its the reason we hit the gas when the light turns yellow, and the reason we put our feet on the bottom rack of the shopping cart when no one's looking. Speed is the reason we bomb hills and the reason we take off on waves. We are all chasing that feeling, and once you give up trying to suppress that deep internal longing for speed you'll thank yourself.  Speed is the reason that Waterborne teamed up with Riptide.

Fun add on to your board - drop through (Tan Tien Deck and Paris Trucks) not recommended

Fun to ride. Really. Despite what follows:
I have a Tan Tien with the standard drop through Paris Trucks. Installation instructions are clear and well to follow, but: the base of the paris trucks is a little too large for the front surf adapter. Solutions: Either turn the trucks 180degrees (king pin looking inward) or using one of the little raising plattforms that were delivered as well. The plattforms work well, but extra screws are required (length). Now the board carves really nicely but it is very very high. Partly because the drop through does not drop through anymore, partly because of the little plattforms that I used as spacer and of course the surf adapter adds height. It is now nearly impossible to stand on the board without movement, once you got going, it carves nicely. I am hoping to get an eBoard soon and get over these issues. I guess for drop through and paris trucks, i could not really recommend this item, but it IS fun...
Shipment to Europe was super fast and easy. Paid my 21% import tax and all was well.

Amazing product

This thing is amazing for my diy eboard, makes turns a breeze and keeps you stable at high speeds, highly recommend for anyone with a regular skateboard, or an esk8
