Logical solutions

Handles adversity well

The sage of the Waterborne fleet, the Scorpio, is the board you can tell all your secrets to.

The Scorpio is the most receptive and immersive riding board on the planet, and it’s the only shortboard with an integrated Rail Adapter suspending the rear truck.  This rear rail adapter compliments the Surf Adapter by keeping all four wheels on the ground during deep carves and letting you carry more speed through turns

Fast and Fun

I’m really enjoying this thing. For comparison, I have experience riding a Carver with a C7 truck as well as a Yow complete. I put a Waterborne adapter on one of my other boards and really loved it. Next I ordered the Scorpio. My only complaints are the stock bushings (they were popping out of the bushing cups on a hard lean and making quite a bit of noise) and the fact that the surf adapter is VERY sensitive to impact damage. On the Scorpio the adapter juts out past the nose of the board, so you have to avoid letting it roll into any curbs. I threw a couple pieces of black duct tape on mine to prevent further damage. It’s a super fun setup though. It’s very fast rolling. I almost lost the board out from under myself the first few times I put weight on the kicktail. The deck isn’t as flexible as I expected, but I’m very happy with it. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys surf skating.

The Ultimate Beast!

I have Waterborne Adapters on 4 of my 5 board set ups, but this thing still managed to kill my quiver!

What's not to say about this ride!? The Carbon Scorpio is, what I imagine to be, the physical creation of the vision Waterborne had for their SurfSkates. The Carbon flexes in all the right places, giving your feet and pumping a solid, locked in feeling you'll never feel with any board, EVER! The set up with RKP trucks allows incredible flow, carve and dive, really giving that surfy feel! The wheels have tons of grip when pumping, while still being able to slide and snap around, though personally I prefer offset wheels!

The deadliest looking SurfSkate ever!

Happy so far

I'm a beginner to skating & surfing - bought the scorpio after getting some surf lessons back in the summer and enjoying the waves I managed to catch.

Progress was pretty rapid despite a slow and uncertain start. After a few days' practice I'm able to pump up mild gradients and do some full loops without pushing in my local skatepark.

The board is a lot more capable than me, it can do very tight turns and it feels more stable than I thought it would when pumping or drifting down a gradient. It's mechanically smooth with no squeaks. The big wheels roll over small debris easily without stalling.

Overall really happy so far, looking forward to getting more confident.

Attention To every detail

Aries

This board is like a feather-light spring under your feet. It can turn on a dime, but doubles great as a cruiser. You'll find that our Aries enjoys transitions and flat ground alike!

Scorpio

To say this board is agile is an understatement...our Scorpio can perform such tight carves you'll forget you're on a skateboard. Thanks to a prominent kicktail and wider deck, controlling this board is easy- yet it's ready to snap into high-performance mode at any second!

Gemini

This board is the ultimate cruiser. Most boards with a wheel-base this long would be comparable to trying to turn a sailboat. Not our Gemini! Rather, it truly feels like surfing on a longboard. It's fast, has a drastically increased turning radius with the Surf Adapter, and achieves maximum rail-to-rail perfomance with the Rail Adapter. Oh, and it's impossible to ride without smiling!

Designed for Flex

Carbon fiber is a material with unique properties. Depending on its' layer thickness, resin system, and formed shape, it can be stiffer than titanium, or more flexible than bamboo. Carbon fiber strikes a balance between durability, lightness, and flexibility that other materials cannot match. The shapes that we cut from the deck are a form that follows function. For example: the tail of the Scorpio Carbon Complete will deform, loading up like a spring in turns, and then release in a slide and drive you out with more speed.
