The simple, classic design of a skateboard has been a worthy muse for both beginner and more experienced engineers for decades. Although you’ll find many variations of the iconic design, most board provide a similar riding experience. But not the SoulArc skateboard.
The SoulArc was created with Creo Parametric for anyone who’s land-locked but itching to carve up a wave. The skateboard uses a composite spring that gives it a unique, fluid-like feel that emulates surfing and snowboarding in a way wheeled longboards are supposed to do and don’t.
