Popped in today for some advice and guidance, and a few bits and pieces, and I stand by everything I wrote below.
Irrespective of selling skate kit, this shop's level of service stands head and shoulders above so many others, from outdoors shops and even car dealerships I have visited.
Long may you stay in business, and keep doing what you do so dam well 👊🏻

Hackbrett Longboards Wasser

The longest longboard we have in the shop is now available as a complete!

These beautiful boards are handmade by skaters in Germany's Black Forest from local materials. Utilising nearly two decades of longboard and downhill deck manufacturing experience, finish on this deck needs to be seen in the flesh to be fully appreciated. The boys at Hackbrett know their stuff!!

The Hackbrett Wasser is a giant swallowtail pin - but there's a lot more to it than most other pintail longboards out there. For starters, it's over 50" long - this thing turns heads wherever it goes! But the real magic is in the construction and concave.

Most pintails are flat or with a simple concave. The Wasser takes things a step further with a complex "moustache" rocker profile with a small "kicktail," and subtle variations in the concave down the length of the board. The resulting deck gives your feet some awesome pockets to drop into and unparalleled board feel. You can skate this deck without ever really looking down at your feet - just feel your way around it.

The Wasser is built around a core of Black Forest Pine, with layers of glass to control the flex, and a top and bottom sheet of Bamboo for a minimal and sleek finish. The logo is burned on with a branding iron.

Carving, cruising around, dancing, downhill, freeride and sliding - this board will do it all, and it'll turn a lot of heads doing it!

  • Features: Wheel Wells, Pockets, gas pedals, axle pockets + 3 ° / -3 °, KL core
  • Weight Class: 50-110kg
  • Flex 1

*We only stock the Flex 1 currently we can get hold of the more flexy Flex 2 and Hotzi versions on request*

We're building these up as three options but we can also do custom completes with whatever wheels and trucks you want - get in touch if you want something special!

We have a longstanding relationship with Hack - click here to read more about what exactly makes these boards so special.

Hackbrett Longboards Wasser: Precision Complete Spec

Well well... I see you are one with fine taste. The Hackbrett Wasser Precision complete is a longboard like few others. This level of design, rider input, engineering and love put into each and every single component, you just don't see that. This isn't a factory build by any stretch of the imagination. This is the creme de la creme, the real deal. You can cruise it through the neighbourhood, bouncing back and forth to your hearts content and a gentle jogging pace, wind in your hair. Or you can take it to a world cup race and get on the podium. Or at least, you could if you were Dr Hackenstein, the mastermind behind the board. He rides the Sabres too.

Hackbrett Longboards Wasser: Elite Complete Spec

The Wasser Elite is one of the absolute juiciest completes in the shop right now. I dare anyone to find a complete with more thought and more years of development put into each component! It's a special feeling riding this one. The carvey trucks, the lively flex, and long wheelbase and the grippy wheels work together in a harmonic synergy of good vibes that will leave you grinning from ear to ear. Guaranteed.

Hackbrett Longboards Wasser: Pro Complete Spec

The Wasser Pro complete is the best value way that you can get yourself running on one of these beauties. Still carvey, still lively, still a long wheelbase and good synergy! The Emperor wheels on here will allow that back end to gently lose traction without fear or strife. Just a deep powder turn feeling, you won't want to stop carving for anything once you've started on this. I got to carve this almost exact setup down a closed 4 laner once and I still dream of it now and then… mmmmmm…

Is the Elite setup worth the extra £15?

For only an extra £15, you can upgrade the "Pro" setup to the "Elite" Level build.

The Elite setup is a pretty heavy wheel and bearing upgrade over the Pro.

You get Sabre Built-In Labyrinth Bearings - fully shielded, easy to clean, with built in bearing spacers. They roll faster and last longer than the Pro level metal shielded ABEC5 bearings.

The Elite complete also includes Cult Cultron 74mm Longboard Wheels White, poured from a higher grade urethane. Premium urethane rolls fater, lasts longer, and generally injects a whole new level of life into the board - once you've skated decent wheels, you won't want anything else!

Less obvious is the wheel upgrade. Your extra £15 gets you a set of Cult Cultron over the Pro build's Cult Emperor. Apart from the obvious size difference, the Cult Cultron are poured from a higher grade of urethane - an invisible difference that you will immediately notice as soon as you push the board off.

Just like the bearings, the wheel upgrade makes your board roll faster and last longer - what's not to like??

If you look at the SRP difference of these components and add them together you'll see that the upgrade from Pro to Elite represents serious value - trust us, it's well worth it.

Coupled with this, we've noticed that almost everyone who makes it into our shop ends up with an Elite setup - the value is clear once you have the board in your hands!

How about the Precision build?

If you're ready to skate the best setup out there the best of the best, step it up to the Precison Build!

For an extra £115, you get the same wheels and bearings as the Elite build, but with a set of Sabre Trucks Forged Precisions.

Given that a set of these trucks would normally set you back £180, that's a serious value for a serious setup!

Useful Extra Info

Customise your ride!

We can change the truck bushings on this board to suit your weight and riding style!

This way your board will come set up perfectly for you, straight out of the box.

Just refer to the table below and make your choice as you add to cart!

Rider weightBushing Hardness

Skateboard Bushings

Some other things to consider...

  • If in doubt - go softer! Turnier boards are easier to balance on, and a lot more fun to skate.
  • If you are "between hardnesses," we would recommend the softer option. So for example, for a 73kg rider, "Soft" rather than "Stock Setup" might be a better choice. Get in touch if you're not sure!
  • if you want a very turny board - say for a dancing longboard - then it's worth going one stop softer than you otherwise would do. Watch out for wheelbite though!
  • Likewise, if you want a board for downhill speed, then go up a step harder than the weight table suggests.
  • You do have a bit of adjustment in the truck's kingpin nut, but we would suggest that if you have more than two threads showing then it's time to go to a harder bushing.
  • If you already have a board (or some trucks!) and you would like to change your bushings to suit your weight, check out our truck/bushing compatability chart!

Superb Service - Before and after sales!

The guys are passionate about boarding. If what you are looking for isn't in stock, sign up for a back in stock alert. The system works perfectly. I knew what I wanted was prepared to wait for my board so it was the perfect way to know when it was back in stock. If you're looking for advice just drop them an email. If you are looking for the ultimate loooong board the Wasser is perfect. Smoothest of rides soaks up the rough surfaces and super fast with low roll resistance.
