The hobo tradition is one of freedom and travel, and of working just enough to get by while you explore the world around you, an itinerant lifestyle that is echoed in the surfer’s peripatetic exploration of far away breaks. With folk art ingenuity the hobo carved unique portraits onto common nickels, transforming a mere five cents into something of great value for trade.
We celebrate the hobo and their counterculture spirit with this amber maple veneer deck featuring a classic hobo nickel design and clear sugar coat grip. With a longer wheelbase for more drawn out carves and easy pushing, this board will take you anywhere you want to go.

This is the signature truck that started it all. Still the smoothest turning, fastest pumping surf truck ever, it’s at the leading edge of true surfskate performance. The patented second axis of this front truck not only increases the turning radius of your carve, but lets you snap the nose and pivot your turns off the tail. This dynamic creates thrust and drives you forward with increasing speed. The striking similarity to surfing performance has made the C7 the choice for surf training by Pros and Ams alike.
