"Having a really fun skateboard to ride when the surf was flat became a family project.
Designing over dinner (pass the ketchup) trashing the garage, littering the yards with prototypes, searching anywhere and everywhere for the just right combination of wood, wheels, trucks, bolts and bearings that would bring that unique flow and feel.
It only took them 8 years or so to get it right (surfing every chance you get has a tendency to slow down projects)
The result is a HAMBOARD, which has a phenomenal similarity to surfing. "
