The Skateboard Surf Adapter turns your skateboard into the most fun thing you own. 

Rip, shred, cruise, slide, pump, and gnarshralp harder than you ever thought possible.

We made a piece of hardware called a Surf Adapter that lets you turn any ordinary skateboard into a surfskate. Any size or shape of board can be made to pump for speed, carve extremely tightly, and slide with control. All you do is bolt the adapter to your front truck. It basically lets you get the highest possible performance out of YOUR skateboard. It’s still everything you love about your board that gets amplified by the ability to carve sharp, buttery turns. It’s a way more fun way to skate around. It just changes everything!

Standard trucks, reverse kingpin, even dual kingpin trucks, all fail to bring a genuine Surfing Experience to skating. The solution is right under your feet, and its your board! The board that your feet are used to is the right board for you. The board that floats you to class, grinds curbs, or steezzes you down the beach is waiting for our Surf Adapter.  ​

Don't wanna buy a whole new board? No worries.

Watch this bad-ass testimonial from the Pros at Braille on the Adapter!

Here's a few clips of local surfers who love the Surf Adapter!

Pacific Tribe and Waterborne Collab boards the Wing and Bomber in action!

The Adapter is also built for speed and many other types of riding. Watch this clip of a World Champ Downhiller testing the adapter! 

 

Here's some more good ol' fun riding with the Adapter, that's what this is all about: FUN.

It doesn't take a lot of money to have a ton of fun! The giant blue board is my favorite example of that!

 Skate simple or dominate the area, up to you.

Will this be good for my campus? Uh, yea so you might as well double up and save!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge that we've faced (and conquered) in designing the Surf Adapter was making it strong enough to endure the daily beating that we're all able to dish out.

Over 15 Generations of Surf Adapters have been tried, tested, and proven. Each model has taught us more about design strengths and weaknesses. We've drafted some phenomenally talented engineers, die-hard skaters, and totally fried surfers to ensure the mechanics of the Surf Adapter are rock solid yet still let you flow as if there were water under your feet.

On the financial end, we've done our due diligence to ensure that our numbers check out. So, as long as we hit our goal there will be a lot of happy people ripping around on some fresh Surf Adapters.
