FAQ

Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions....

 

What's the weight limit?
We have riders riding the Classic, Pinger and Fish models that are tipping the scales over 170 kg. Hamboards can carry the weight.  Plus if you upgrade the truck springs to the "Red" springs, they have a firm but responsive feel.

What size board is right for me?
Check out this page for more info: Which Hamboard is right for me?

Do you build custom boards?
If you have enough patience for the craftsmanship and time it takes to adjust or change the cosmetics of the various models AND have the significant amount of cash it also takes to make this process happen...then we should talk.  It's not easy and it's not cheap.

Can I have a Hamboards sticker?
Send us a self address stamped envelope.

How do I get replacement parts?
For trucks parts on the Classic, Pinger or Fish models — contact Originalskateboards.com.  For everything else contact Hamboards at.... info@hamboards.se

How long will my Hamboard last?
Hamboards last a long time.  A really long time.  Any piece of high quality oft used equipment requires some maintenance and care, as does a Hamboard.  We have seen regularly ridden Hamboards made in 2005 back in our shop for refurbishment (new bearings, bushings, cleaning and new deck coating) and they leave looking great and ready for another 8 to 10 years.

Is there any kind of maintenance required for my Hamboard?
As mentioned above "Any piece of high quality regularly used equipment requires some maintenance and care, as does a Hamboard".  So, we recommend you wipe it down with windex or any household cleaner after every use (if you really get it dirty, you can actually clean it with a powdered kitchen cleanser like COMET, a green scrubby sponge, and a hose).  Replace the Cam Bushings inside the front and rear trucks every 6 to 9 months, depending on use.  Clean and lube or replace the bearings once a year if necessary.

Why are Hamboards so expensive?
We hand make them out of the best quality materials, put the best hand applied paints and finishes, and install only the highest quality components including the wheels, trucks and bearings...not mention the bolts and nuts.

How do Hamboards handle Hills?
Hamboards were designed to be ridden and enjoyed on the flats and gentle slopes.  If you want to ride your Hamboard on steep hills you need to talk to us about upgrading your trucks and still be aware that bombing hills on a Hamboard is not what we recommend.  So don't do this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtkbKQRHqjs

We will update this information shortly based on the size and weight of each board.

Why are Hamboards different than a longboard?
A Hamboard just has a very different feel than regular longboard.  A Hamboard feels a lot like surfing even though you are riding on the land.  Riding a Hamboard takes Longboarding to a new level.

Are those real surfboards on wheels?
Nope. We paint and finish them like the surfboards we ride and love, and strive to give each Hamboard the craftsmanship and vibe that a handmade surfboard has...a Hamboard has wheels, looks very much like a surfboard, but is different.
