Any experience with these boards guys? What's your thoughts in these? They look like some pretty cool surf style cruisers.

I like Hammy Bamboo Fish.  They really carve, and have zero chance of Wheel bite. I am forever land locked and have never surfed so I personally  cannot compare it to surfing.

No Sir they are Original brand trucks.  90mm Abec 11 78a  with the risers the deck sits just shy of 6" from the ground.

Way stronger than the Revenge. no tabs to break off.

Aren't those the same as Hammond. Think they even do a 6' long board if I'm not mistaken in green or blue. Have always wanted to try one and did see a distributor in British Columbia, Canada. Sent an E but received no reply at all. I can dig that deck in the photo. for sure.

Thanks for the info. So that is a pretty tall riser then? 6 inches off the ground! Seems like there would be wheelbite with 90mm wheels...

the deck is about 3/4" bamboo. There is a 1/2" bamboo riser and a 1/2" plastic riser under the bamboo one. The trucks dead end, and the wheel wells are DEEP. I have cut in sharp enough that the outside wheels came off the ground and I scraped the inside edge of the board on the ground.  They will not wheel bite unless the trucks would fail. I am 215 and the trucks hold fine. I have snapped revenge tabs, but I have seen guys that weigh a buck ten snap revenge tabs.

Yeah that bamboo fish is awesome. I was gonna look at the new Huntington hop they came out with. It's 3'9" by 10 5/8th. Looks really cool and an awesome cruiser carver

Hamboards makes some cool stuff, I've been wanting to ride one but have not had the chance.
I follow 'em on Facebook and they do rider demos at different beaches and spots pretty regularly so if I ever get back to L.A. I plan on working that in somehow.

The big one is just ridiculous, next size down is still pretty crazy
The Fish and Pescadito look cool, the Biscuit looks like it would be wild.
The Huntington Hop looks pretty classic already. 

Yeah, I want one...

Seems like a cool ride in the parking lot when the waves aren't quite ready when you arrive.....

kind of kooky from a skateboarding point of view, but you can't deny that they look like straight up, good ol' fashion FUN! I'd ride one for sure!


So much style to be had on one, I could see this killin the good bit of a day and all you need is a church parking lot on a saturday morning!
