Awesome retrofit option

I had started skating transition and riding in a straight line wasn't doing much for me any more. I retrofitted a cherished old cruiser with the surf adapter and it's a whole new experience. It's fun and a great way to get some exercise. I think if you can tick-tack, you can hop on and make this go on the first try. I'm still learning, but have found that I can use ankles, legs, arms and/or core to propel myself forward. You can develop technique or exercise different muscles by consciously changing it up.

I would recommend soft wheels with cores. I'm running Globe 78As with cores. They're MUCH faster than my plain cruiser wheels and allow me to get moving more quickly and easily. (I'm sure there are other good wheels--this is just what I have).

The looseness of the board under my feet was a bit disconcerting at first. But I got used to it and learned to trust it. I'm not using the rail adapter.

I have been able to transfer some of what I learned over into bowl skating. I'm becoming more comfortable with looser trucks and can carve better to keep up my speed.

Staying fit at 50

Been surfing and skating for over 40 years now, picked up paddle skating to stay in shape on the flat days and when I just can't paddle out. The waterborne attachments have really added a funness to my skating and a great easy flow amd a smoother ride. Really worth the money and are of excellent quality 🤙 Still a kid at heart 🤙

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.
