  • Where did surfskate originate from?
    Surfskate History (Dogtowns & Z-boys) In the mid 70s in Santa Monica, skateboarding had evolved with a group of surfers which started to do tricks with surf style hands on the ground and later this group Z-boys founded vertical skating which became known as vert and bowl skating today. In this same town Venice, surfskate was born with a new invention of trucks which allow skaters to carve more to feel more like surfing on water. They created dual axis trucks which allows you to increase the turn radius with a spring load mechanism that centers off. A Surfskate is a skateboard born to surf the street so basically is a surf skateboard. Surfskate has different system trucks that allows very tight turns and some would have a spring system to help generate kinetic energy and by carving (turn) the board which allows skaters to go on forever without having to take a foot off and push the board like skateboard. Because of how the truck is designed to turn, it allows very tight turns and typical surfing maneuvers.
  • Why DWT surfskate do not sell online direct?
    Product knowledge - At a local shop, they know the products, they know how the difference and they know the industry. If you buy it online they might sell you the wrong size board or a board is above your experience and ability. They might even have the setup totally wrong for the start. Local Events & Community - We all are doing a sport and definitely all are looking to progress in their own pace and some might be more competitive. Local surfskate shop will be able to tell you where events will be happening and connect you the group that have the same interest as you or even coaches. Giving Back - Our local shops gives back to community in some way or another by sponsoring competitions and events. They impact lives of the future generation to stay focus in sports than other bad influences. Some of these shops sponsors athletes and all this do count to help local bali talents to progress alone the way in their sporting life. Servicing - Our local bali surfskate shops will have the knowledge to fix your equipment issues if any or help order parts for your problem. If you were to buy from some unknown online stalls that do not have any retail shops, very likely it is going to be hard to reach them when there is an issue in their product. DWT surfskate is a strong believer in giving back to the local business and community hence we work with local retailers all across Bali.
