What are Surf-skates and why everybody loves them

 

A Surfskate, is a skateboard with specific trucks that allow a dynamic push (aka "pump") that simulates the movement performed by surfers to gain speed while surfing waves. The front truck acts like a fulcrum and allows very sharp and tight turns.

If you want to know why this kind of boards are appreciated by both surfers and beginners, and read some tips about how to choose your surfskate gear click on the link or scroll to the bottom of the page!

For Training

Surfskates are particularly appreciated by surfers: if you think about it, on an average surfing session, you actually spend few seconds riding waves; most of the time you are paddling and waiting and paddling for the right wave.
This kind of skateboards finally give you the chance to improve your surf manouvers (and muscle memory) practicing on the dryland.

On a surf-skate you can work on your stance, lern how to “pump” to generate speed (one of the most difficult surfing skills to acquire), and train moves like: rail-to-rail, bottom & top turns, cut backs and re-entry, both backside and frontside.

For Cruising

Even if youre not a surfer or interestd in learning surf moves, Skatesurfs are also a super fun mean of transport for cruising around your city in stylish and eco-friendly way.
