Last year’s New York Toy Fair turned up this amusing iteration of the alternative skateboard, the Swerver Ultimate Carving Streetboard. I find this amusing if only for the fact that they adapted RipStick or Hurricane wackyboards to make them look more like a skateboard:
The advantages of longboarding and skateboarding combined into one.
Whether you want to go cruising down the street or tackle a new obstacle course, the Swerver is the only board you’ll need. The Swerver Ultimate Carving Streetboard combines the advantages of a longboard with those of a skateboard. The rider propels the Swerver Board forward using a twisting motion, eliminating the need to push off the ground every few feet.
Set up complicated courses, perform tricks off the half-pipe or just fly effortlessly to your next destination. With the Swerver Ultimate Carving Streetboard, the journey is the fun.
Somehow a whole year passed without the Swerver becoming a;ll the rage. I can’t even find an official web site for the product. See it in action after the jump. I can’t wait to perform some tricks “off the half-pipe.”
– Thanks to Concretins for the tip.
