We have serious envy of Hawaiian residents who work at small shops to make just enough money for a place and spend the rest of their days surfing. However, even those who live on the beach can’t be riding waves all day, there’s that in-between time when… you know… you’re on land. For this little dilemma the guys at Hamboards spent the last eight years dedicating themselves to replicating the surfing experience on land. Hopping on a Hamboard is like carving through the ocean only instead of ocean you’ve got pavement or blacktop. Through lots of trial and error they found the perfect combo of trucks, wheels, bolts and bearings to put the feeling of surfing at your feet regardless of what piece of Earth you’re on. Also great for guys who can’t swim. $435-695. More info HERE.
