Surfing the streets

Finally the sun is shining in our little cold European country.
That means we’re heading to the beach again.
If there are waves… that’s always the question here…

As in California, Huntington Beach, you would imagine there would be great,
or at least fine, waves every day. It’s not… sometimes it’s flat and what do you do then?

That’s what the Hamborg family must have thought.
A family of seven (mum, dad and 5 brothers)
living near the ocean at Huntington Beach California…
Besides surfing wanted to work on their athleticism and balance when there were no waves…
They finally created this beautiful design, unintentionally,
which made a real connection to their lifestyle and later on to many others.
It took them years to refine and shape it. Riding it during the day…
Brainstorming about it at the dinner table at night.
They never had a clue they were onto someting new… that’s the cool detail about this story behind it.
They were just stoked about this and made a few extra to share…

The cool hamboards. Available for everybody. A 6 foot board on wheels.
Great fusion between surfing and skateboarding.
There’s even a FISH and SUP version.
Nowadays  a new sport and lifestyle for a big group of cool people.
An effective surfing emulator, convenient transportation
and just a way to have some cool and great fun!

There’s even an official hamboards tumblr page,  showing the coolest styles
and the lifestyle around this cool board,
beautifully photographed.

How someone’s lifestyle can create something unexpectedly cool for others.
Like a fairytale. We love it!
