The Hybrid series is the latest addition from the guys at SwellTech, is a hybrid between the Jamie O'Brien Pro model and the already famous Premiere . It has an intermediate measure between the two, 36 inches long; and combines the same width of the Premiere, 9¾ inches, but wider in both the nose and tail, like the JOB Pro Model, hence its name "Hybrid".
The front axle is the V-Truck, with its revolutionary system that rotates 360º , and that they optimized in 2017, and improved in 2020. They have achieved more surfing sensations, but also much more stability. Thanks to the new stronger external springs, you will be able to pivot up to 60º from edge to edge, thus achieving tighter and more radical turns.
The rear axle is still a conventional one , although it has been reduced in size, it is now 155mm, to get closer to the new 135mm front axle. This way you can distribute the weight more evenly on both axles. Also in 2020, they made it more robust.
Thanks to this combination of trucks, this longboard is one of the most faithful surf simulators on the market . It allows no margin for error, the position on the board has to be correct and the movements and weight distribution have to be perfect. But once we correct the posture and the body, it's a lot of fun, excellent to practice surf maneuvers and pumping.
The board has a raised tip that simulates a surfboard with a lot of rocker and above all to avoid direct hits on the tip. Also, it is quite concave, so you can put a lot of pressure on the edges during turns and have more grip sensation.
Perfect to perfect your surf. It even comes with a rear pad to give you the same sensations as your surfboard when you go barefoot.
