At Streetboardz we are committed to developing the best surf simulation and training devices we can and are proud to announce the release of our best board for kids and big kids yet The "Switch".
It is a little larger that a penny style board but light and with a kick tail, it has 3 benefits in the one board - it can be ridden as a traditional skateboard and rides great like this, then with the click of a button it transforms into a surf trainer with the swivelling front truck.
I have strong opinions around the really loose styles of this truck that develop a habit of going to the front to develop speed and then a wiggling movement and the effect that has had on a lot of kids I coach, so this board still maintains a carve and doesn't dive as much in the turns and we have had amazing feedback from the coaches we have shared it with so far.
It also comes with a detachable break that can be used by beginners to accelerate the curve of learning to skateboard or to ride hills with security. Or it can be ridden without the break. It is a sick board and kids and older kids are loving it.
The other great thing is the price, we have launched via the KickStarter platform http://kck.st/2Hs3tC8 and for the moment the board can be purchased for $115 and with most other surf simulators around $300 it is a great deal, it is a pre order that means you will be amongst the first people in the world to have the board when they are delivered and be supporting a small team of people dedicated to helping people surf better and getting kids into board riding easily and earlier.
I'll be stoked if you can check it out and share with anyone you think might be interested, thanks guys. Here is the link - http://kck.st/2Hs3tC8
