The good folks over at GamePro.com posted their summer vacation gear guide today, leading off with a glowing review of Freebord.
Bob and Sica were also interviewed for the video portion – check them out below or see the full review here.
Some graduate students spend their time working on abstract master thesis projects that probably won’t have much bearing on the world. Others, like Freebord founder Steen Strand, spend their time actually creating stuff that benefits humanity. Conceived during Strand’s time at Stanford University, the Freebord is an awesome product that combines skateboarding with its wintery cousin, snowboarding. Basically, the Freebord is a skateboard with bindings and an innovative truck design that adds a third pivoting wheel to the mix; this allows you to slide your board to the side and experience a snowboard-like ride on asphalt. We put together a little video with two experienced Freeborders who can explain the product way better than we can so have a look and you’ll see why we’re so geeked to recommend it to you. It’s a cool way to spend your summer months and it’ll get your butts off the couch so your parents won’t rag on you for staying inside all day. Best of all, there’s a thriving community that welcomes new riders and organized Freebord rides in cities all around the world, so you probably won’t have any trouble finding someone to help you get started.
