No one would blame you for calling it the SpringBoard, but the SoulArc Board is a brand new skateboard with a rigid top and below-deck composite spring that provides the action and feel of surfing (and shredding). A result of a class project at Kendall College of Art and Design, the board is the brainchild of Mitch Mulder, who partnered with Salvaore Vilardi to bring the board to market. It'll be introduced in a couple weeks at the Action Sports Retail trade show in San Diego at the Surf Expo in Orlando. (The name comes from the surfing expression "soul arch"--being one with the wave.)
Comments Mulder, "I've been making boards for 8 years and got sick of riding planks. With this board, you can ride in places you typically can't ride." And what does it really feel like? "You've gotta ride it to really understand it," answers Vilardi.
