Props to Frosty for securing this upcoming Freebord review on mesurf.com.au.
“Keeping the dream alive”
In the real world we don’t get waves every day, and unfortunately during summer these flat spells can last for weeks. This is where the freebord steps in. Designed to offer the same feeling as snowboarding, we think it also has a place in every surfers’ quiver. Here is a quick rundown on what the Freebord offers:
Freebord’s outside wheels act just like the edges on your snowboard. The result: total speed control that allows you to bomb the steepest street you want.
Freebord’s center wheels act like the petex base on your snowboard allowing you to slide your edge and drift into switch. Great way to practice your 180’s for next time out in the surf.
Edge in and slide to a stop, same as you do on snow. So you always have full control.
Freebord’s patented truck design is the only board on the market that combines both carving and sliding (think about it: without both, it’s not snowboarding or surfing).
mesurf has one of these puppies on its way thanks to Frosty at Freebord NZ. We will have a comprehensive review and footage of the mesurf crew putting this bad boy to the test. In the meantime, check out the Freebord site and see what it is all about.
