So worth it!

I put these adapters on my big cruiser board - a Krooked deck around 10.5" wide and 34" long with 10" wide Independent trucks. Running 70mm/70a wheels right now but waiting on 64mm/77a wheels to show up in the mail.

Learning to pump this setup has drastically helped my actual surfing. Like, it's a revelation. I'm able to start pumping immediately after popping up and make sections I never would have made just waiting for the wave to push me down the line. Running highlines, going faster, and throwing much more spray than ever before in the water. Best of all, no more "pumping" the nose straight up and down to zero effect! It's all in the hips - side to side baby!

At the skatepark, I still kind of feel like the weird old guy among all the kids riding actual skateboards but that's going away as I get more comfortable with speed, maintaining speed, bigger turns, and slides.
It's so addictively fun I'm budgeting skate time during my week.
Already thinking about setting up a second board a little differently with Waterborne Adapters as a dedicated skatepark whip and keeping this first board for the street.
The adapters are very well made, impressive, really, and they totally transform your board. SO WORTH IT if you are considering a surfskate and already have a board and some trucks to use. Super psyched on this purchase. Totally recommend giving it a go if you're curious.

Watch you step

This product will elevate your deck an inch or more. So you will need to adjust your step considerably on the push.

The product is extremely sturdy and well made. Carves like a dream and makes surfing on land feel smooth and fun.

Can't get enough!

This is my 4th Waterborne Surf Adapter I added to the quiver. Put this on a 36" Downhill board this time for distance along with a push pole. It rocks even up hill!
The other 3 have been on so many combinations of my 55 decks it's just wild how fun the Waterborne is on every board imaginable...from pool decks, longboards, a crappy Dept store deck(one of the best), one with Sky Hooks, to a monster Kuhuna Creations as big as a surf board! Well done Waterborne!!!

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.
