DESCRIPTION

This upgrade kit is designed to fit any skateboard and drastically increase its surf-style performance.

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 skateboards rear truck, whether it's traditional kingpin or reverse kingpin, 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 hardware necessary for installation is included.

I hate what this has done to me.

I like cant even with this, I thought it was gonna be fun not life changing. Litterally everytime I step onto my normal boards the bushings just feel so tight and hard, I normally rock soft and loose bushings. My only problem is that you don't really go fast and there's nothing I love more than carving at speed.

awesome

I'm glad I opted for this instead of spending +$300 on an actual surfskate. From my understanding this is supposed to imitate an actual surfskate. It's fun to ride but boy do i need to practice. it's a great addition and will likely buy another one soon for my Pilsner board. No regrets.

One issue: installing this was a pain. It's almost as if removal would be a nightmare. I doubt i could remove it within 30 mins. Perhaps i was doing it wrong?

Fun and valuable

I enjoy this product but make sure you put it on a board that suits your wheel base. I tried it on a Landyachtz Tugboat and it was too unstable for my wheelbase. Then I put it on a 41” drop down and while it’s fun, it’s just a novelty. Someday I’m going to buy a better fitting cruiser for it. Still worth the money and a great introduction to surf skating. Also friendly customer service

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.
