If the name “hamboard” conjures images of bacon-wrapped skateboards in your mind, you’re not alone. Though, once you see a hamboard out on the roads, you’ll still probably be scratching your head.
Hamboards were developed over eight years by a family of seven California von Trapps surfers and combine the looks of a surfboard with the wheels of a skateboard. They wanted to simulate the feeling of surfing when the tide was flat, so the hamboard bends and swivels just like a surfboard in the ocean.
You can’t always get to the water, so if you’re a hardcore surfer dude who likes to hang ten on the Pipeline and all that other Ninja Turtle stuff, a hamboard might be in your best interest.
