What makes the Smoothstar skateboard completely different from other skateboards and longboards is the fact that they are made for surfers. The longboards can be used by all surfers who wish to improve their technique, balance and strength. Smoothstar skateboards has a special turning mechanism, placed in front of the truck. The benefits of the mechanism are that the board is able to turn really fast and that you can create speed while on the board, there is no need for pushing. Smoothstar is designed to make the flow and movements of the board mimic the movements of riding a wave.
Smoothstar is an Australian brand, based in New South Wales and founded back in 2003. Smoothstar longboards are used by many professional surfers, because it gives the opportunity to train technique and tricks again and again without having to wait for the perfect wave.
