....this warrants one. I've tried a number of skateboard related designs that were supposed to recreate surfing/snowboarding over the years, from the painfully slow Flowlab single curved axle boards in the 90s to full on short turny slalom boards with khiro whites up front. They all had some strengths but none of them really delivered. I mean I still like running slalom cones once in a while but most of those experiments are either collecting dust or are long gone. So I ordered the surf adapter/rail adapter because I just can't help myself, and stuck it on an old 35" Sector 9 with indys and soft wheels, just to see what it's about. Meh. It was impressively turny but there was still something missing when it comes to recreating THAT feeling. It could easily have petered out there, but one last roll of the dice....I got the Taurus wide deck (19" wheelbase), swapped the indys out for Randall II 150s and stuck a set of old school red Kryptonics on it. Wow. Now I'm addicted. The level of predictable and functional edge angle is pretty astounding. The board pumps effortlessly, picking up speed uphill just through turning, no more pushing. And when you're a lazy tosser like me that's important! Most of all though.....it's smooth....it flows. And that's what drew me to surfing in the first place and then to snowboarding....flow. Grab a rail, get inside the turn and feel the flow. This thing is definitely worth it.
