    A thousand recommendations for the Barfoot skates... super surfy with the rocker and the Revenge trucks. They've helped my surfing exponentially....

    I know they are expensive...but has anyone ever tried the hamboards?

    6'6 Model is FUN!

    Skip the land paddle though, if you can't get this thing going you shouldn't be skating.

    I have to agree. I have a Hamboard and it is the greatest thing I have ever bought! It carves better than any other board I have, and is endless fun when the waves go flat.

    I have two Hamboards. A Bamboo Classic and a Pescadito. The Classic is great for working on your cross stepping and as questioned before, the wheels are big enough that you won't eat it if you hit a pebble. I normally ride mine barefoot unless I'm in a rough parking lot. I didn't like the Pescadito the first time I rode it, but I love it now. It's great for pumping. They are very expensive, but watch craigslist. I bought the classic for $250 brand new off of Craigslist and got my Pescadito from a guy I surfed a contest with for $100. I love them. At retail, I would not have bought them though. I think the ones from this site look pretty nice and a good deal.
