Extra Long Skateboard - Hamboard

An invention by seven surfers from Huntington Beach, California, the Hamboard is a result of combining a skateboard and a surfboard. Not many sports 'mergers' have been successful, but this may be one of the fortunate ones. Here's from the inventors ...
"So, I know we make a really big skateboard. Ok, a HUGE skateboard...basically an uber longboard of longboards. And that is what people notice first about our boards - how big they are. And being logical creatures they think that since they are so big they will handle worse than a living room couch on wheels. It is interesting to see folks laugh at how big and clumsy (they think) our Hamboards are. Then they see someone ride one. Crack off a turn. Blow the tail. Walk the nose. Pull a Manual. They see the flow and carve, the grace and power. I love to watch the astonishment wash over people's faces as their perspectives are immediately and drastically shifted. Basically going from "how lame" to "how COOL - how do I get one?" I must admit, if I saw an enormous skateboard - like a Hamboard - sitting there, I would assume it would ride like crap. So, I guess I do understand where people are coming from. Hamboards - not just bigger ... better."
