If you're lucky enough to catch a glimpse of cardboard's enemy list, you'll probably find water up near the top alongside cats and fire. The two just don't mix, which is why it's incredibly impressive that the folks at Signal Snowboards were able to make a surfboard out of cardboard that didn't disintegrate as soon as it touched the ocean.
Fixed skateboard trucks, no matter how loose, just can't flex enough to match the carving ability and dynamic movement of a surfboard. The SurfSkate's specially-designed front truck, however, lets you carve tarmac like swells in the Pacific.
The chances of me getting eaten by a shark while surfing are slim. The chances of me getting pounded by a wave while surfing, that happens all the time. Fortunately I've never had a wipeout as bad as the guys in this video.
