Description:

Longwave – is a combination of surf & longboard providing a truly unique experience like no other. As the name suggests, longboard imitates the surfing experience by allowing its user to steer and gain momentum on the asphalt through the surf like movements, which in turn allows for great manoeuvrability in the urban environment. This combination wouldn’t be possible without a custom-engineered truck that reduced the wobble during riding and allows for much greater speed.

The truck itself comes in a very compact solution that introduces spring embedded in its design. The spring ensures greater stability and allows for two different styles of riding with an easy to use the system for switching from land surfing style to a more static experience.
