Street Surfing 101

Street surfing is the hottest new action sport.
Street Surfing

Check out this cool new action sport which has been creating a craze around the world. If you haven't heard of it, we'll catch you up to speed!

The Goods

Street surfing is a lot similar to skateboarding, but combines elements of surfing and snowbording as well. Street surfers ride on a wave board which has a paddle-like shape and with one wheel on each side. Each wheel pivots so that the board can turn freely. Above each wheel is a foot pad that are both linked together. The rider uses their weight, hips and shoulders to maneuver through the pavement. This gives riders a unique movement as well as the ability to do smooth 360 degree turns. The wave board allows riders to ride uphill and has an incredible ability to turn. The wave board has some of the same dynamics of a snakeboard because they work in similar ways.

The Growth

The wave board has only been around for a few years, but has started to gain mainstream popularity across the world. Clips on Youtube have been surfacing around the net of kids using their creativity while street surfing. The uniqueness of board and the potential for new tricks is seemingly endless. Many of the same tricks you can do on a skateboard, snowboard or surfboard, like a 360, kickflip, hang ten, ollie and manual - you can also do on a wave board. When people are street surfing it almost seems like they are riding on a wave rather than on a normal street!

Final Word

If you haven't tried a wave board, we suggest you give it a try. It is easy to learn and it gives you a ride and experience that you have never felt before. It can be quite the workout at first, while you are trying to learn how it works. But once you get the hang of it, its smooth sailing from there. So start saving up your allowance since wave boards retail for around $90 US, but we promise you won't regret it!

Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
