SLIDE is the new collection of surf skateboards designed and developed in an exclusive collaboration between SLIDE Surf Skate, Hot Buttered (Australia) and Sancheski at the Sancheski Factory in Irun (Northern Spain).
Sancheski is one of the first European skateboard manufacturers and has been manufacturing sporting goods for more than 80 years. Since 1934, starting with textile and leather goods, production evolved into the manufacture of skis, mountain gear and finally the adaption of exclusive Sancheski technology and know-how to skateboards commencing in 1966. Sancheski has 50 years of experience in skateboard manufacturing, all of which has been applied to re-engineering SLIDE trucks to organically generate sales worldwide.
Hot Buttered, based in Australia, specialises in premium surfing equipment and has been at the forefront of surf and bodyboards development since 1971. HB's first skateboard production commenced in 1987 with the patented HB vertical pin truck and 'OZE' deck boards. HB contributes deck design and templates underlining the true surfing roots of SLIDE.
SLIDE Surf Skate is the passion of Taiwanese founder June Lui. Working with young surfer skaters, June's creative vision oversaw the development of the 'spring loaded multi-directional truck' which was the genesis of the SLIDE truck that powers SLIDE today. Testing and engineering research and development using the best tempered steel and moulding methods ensure the very best production techniques for SLIDE boards.
In 2016, Sancheski SL and Hot Buttered International are focused on distribution where innovation is key, and only the best quality provides the core of SLIDE's ‘fun & function’.
SLIDE brings the spirit of surfing to the city. Practice turns and trim, skate and surf maneouvres on concrete, either flat or in a bowl. The 2016 version of the SLIDE truck is fully adjustable allowing rigidity to be set simply by tightening or loosening the spring nut, allowing 'fun & function’ to suit all riders skill levels, beginner, average or professional. Experience the same feelings as riding waves, making Slide a perfect tool to practice and improve surfing skills.
Beware, SLIDE is addictive!
