Feeline Skates Review
Freelines are insane, is the opening quote that tester Trent gave me after spending a month trying out Freeline Skates. Feeelines are basically small metal plates with grip on the top, and two 72 mm longboard wheels underneath. They don’t strap to your feet, and you can’t stand still while standing on them. One per foot, they sort of create a skateboarding effect, except that it’s nothing like skateboarding at all.
Freebords are alternative skateboard created to simulate the feel of snowboarding on pavement closely as possible. On a Freebord, you can carve as well as slide just like on a snowboard.

Nuclear Pickle Review

The board does have some issues -
Tierney Rides T-Board Review
The T-Board from Tierney Rides is a unique type of board. Basically, the T-Board is a large two wheeled deck with a set of custom torsion one-wheeled trucks.

Loaded Vanguard Carver Review
Loaded makes several innovative carving skateboards, along with snowboards. All of thier boards have the same vertical laminate composite contruction that help give a springy, flexible feel and a bold, natural look. The Loaded Vanguard is designed to be a ballanced all-around carver, good for tackling almost everything you'll want to ride. It's not a trick skateboard, and not so much a longboard as it is a pure carverving machine.
The Wave Review
The Wave is a new, very unique riding system. The board rides on two wheels, each on a pivot so that the board can turn freely - confused? Take a look.
The Stowboard is a wild new innovation - it's something like a skateboard, that folds up into a compact little unit that can be fit easily into a backpack. It's very high tech, solid, and cool. It doesn't ride just like a skateboard, but it's similar. Read the review for more info on this invention.
