Anyone heard about Dirtsurfer?
One of my mates in za has one. We only rode it on the roads in cape town. It is very relaxed on asfalt. The warning sticker is hilarious.
Its big, Its really big. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to tell that this is highly exposed, way out of the the box, you know... out there, kinda stuff...
I've laughed of it .
Which type of brake it had?
You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
I have a dirtsurfer, but haven't ridden it much for several years. It's one of the first generation ones, I think. It has a bicycle V-brake activated by leaning back (this works very well), and a dead-man brake that stops the board if you fall off (unnecessary in my opinion).
Pretty fun to ride, and due to the brake, it's much easier/less painful to pick up than longboarding, I just ran out of time to play with it. Having said that, I did ride it on the beach last weekend, and I want to go back with my toy kite to see if it's big enough to tow me (the winds on the coast here are consistently around 15-20 mph, but the kite is only about 1 square meter, maybe a bit less). I might also get it up to some of the local ski area access roads this summer - should be easy to get up to 30 mph or so on those roads, and there's very little traffic in the summer.
My wife learned to ride it on the beach last weekend, so hoping to get her to spend some more time on it too.
