The SwellTech Surfskate Premiere is perhaps one of the most beautiful boards on the market right now, they have kept the size and shape of their first board, but they have made it all black and with white letters.
It reminds us above all of the boards known as "Fish", due to its tail with a double peak. It even has a rear pad so you can have the same sensations of your surfboard if you go barefoot .
The front axle is the V-Truck, with its revolutionary system that rotates 360º , and they optimized a lot in 2017, and improved even more in 2020. They have achieved more surfing sensations, but also much more stability, and more durability. 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.
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 get our posture and body correct, it's a lot of fun, great for practicing surf maneuvers and learning how to generate speed .
They have also increased the wheelbase , so you can place your feet with the same distance you use on your surfboard and you can take more advantage of its 40" length.
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. The sandpaper is transparent, which exposes the black of the table.
