We’ve brought in single-deck WOOD CORE snow skates from Ambition, in Team Series and Pro Series.
Don’t confuse these with all-plastic toys; just like your skateboard deck, these rides have a 7-ply Canadian Maple core for ‘pop’ – and add a 7-channel UHMW P-Tex base layer, and soft and grippy EVA foam topsheets. Handmade in Quebec, Ambition Snowskates are the class of single-decks.
If you don’t know about snowskates yet, check out the action on YouTube – just search for “ambition ten”.
Note that these boards are NOT bi-deckers, a different form of snowskate with a bottom ski that is more like a snowboard, most commonly used at ski hills, and that require sharpening, waxing, etc.
These are single-decks, made for the street, the backyard, the snowed-over local skatepark. They are a little larger than a typical skateboard deck; typically around 32.5″ and 8.5″ wide. No special boots required; no sharpening, and waxing is optional but not really required. They’ve been around for a decade or more, but haven’t matured until the last few years, and are just now starting to gain a following in MN.
So if you’re not ready to stop skating for the winter, stop in the shop and check them out…
