Buy Surf Skateboard Online at JTSkate which offers an extensive selection of boards from top manufacturers, as well as a wide variety of accessories. We have everything from beginner boards to professional-level models, so you're sure to find something perfect for your needs.

Surf skateboards are designed with special front trucks which allow the skateboard to tilt, the front trucks to pivot and the wheels to change direction, much more than a normal skateboard. This allows the rider to generate their own speed by pumping the pump forwards and backwards, similar to the feeling of surfing or carving a wave.
These skateboards are very popular with surfers (particularly as a substitute for when the surf is flat!) as they blur the boundaries between surf and skate; you can mimic your surfing stance and slide out the tail for a realistic surfing simulator.

Great for:

  • Generating your own speed
  • Practising your surfing/snowboarding (carving) skills
  • A mode of transport and cruising around
  • Carrying/transporting around
  • Tight and deep carves
  • Effortless pumping

Not so great for:

  • Going fast
  • Stability for beginners
  • Manoeuvrability for beginners
  • Tricks & flips
