Waterborne UMA 'Maité' Surfskate
Waterborne UMA 'Maité' Surfskate
UMA Maité Steenhoudt pro model 8.75" Undercurrent Series
These UMA surfskates have been an absolute joy to pump around when paired with Waterborne surf and rail adaptors! Not only do they look stunning, they felt absolutely amazing under our feet during our test runs.
Let's start with the basics; the deck. UMA Landsleds exploded in the skateboarding industry after being founded by ex-Element pro skater Evan Smith together with creative head Thomas Campbell. As such, each UMA Landsleds deck offers unmatched durability and stiffness increasing the efficiency of energy transfer with each pump! Hey you know it's gotta be good if an ex-Element pro skater skates it!
Right beneath the deck hides the secret sauce for the board's surfskating capabilities. The Surf Adaptor increases the articulation of the front truck, allowing the front wheels to turn 4x sharper than it originally could! This paired together with the rail adaptor on the back trucks gives the board the ability to carve deeper and harder than other surfskates while maintaining maximum grip of the rear end. This is made possible via the rail adaptors compressing and flexing in each carve.
Moving down to the trucks, we've paired these surfskates with our very own Skatebruh 5.5" matte black corrosion resistant trucks. We chose a wider hanger construction to give riders additional stability at higher speeds and carving through those super tight turns.
To finish off the set up, we've paired Rebirth Macaron wheels to provide a grippy and snappy ride feel. Size does matter when it comes to wheels... Ahem, anyways at 60mm in diameter and 43mm Contact Patch these wheels are big enough to roll over most obstacles we faced when skating while still being light enough to perform ollie's over those dreaded drain grills and curbs. These Rebirth wheels also offer a rounded lip construction making them really easy to break into slides on command while offering maximum durability since their wheel lips are less prone to chipping and tears.
In a nutshell, we've fallen in love with these surfskates by UMA and Waterborne as they're arguably the most versatile surfskates in the market. Feeling surfy? Sure, just fit on the Waterborne adaptors and you're good to go surfskating. Just wanna chill and cruise around? That's possible with these boards too! Simply dismount the adaptors and just like magic you've got a fully capable cruiser set up!
We've had plenty of fun testing these boards and we hope you do too! Check out these surfskates by UMA Landsleds and Waterborne today :D
