When it comes to extreme sports, there’s probably nothing trendier than surf skating at the moment. Just like how skateboards had their share of the spotlight back in the ’90s, surf skating is the new cool kids’ sport of 2021. With surf skating and skateboarding being such a hit right now, here are some luxury skateboards and surf skates for you to ride the trend in style.

While they may look similar to skateboards, surf skates come with a pointed front—similar to how surfboards would usually look. Simply put, they’re like smaller-sized, in-land surfboards designed to simulate the movements of surfing. Unlike skateboards, surf skates are designed for techniques like turning and ‘snapping’ that allow surfers to hone their skills during their time off from the beaches when it’s low season for surfing.

Read on for our picks of the coolest luxury skateboards and surf skates that’ll give your street cred an instant boost.
