New Designs for Spring Continue Technology and Style Leadership

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - March 27, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- GhostriderX Skateboards, LLC ( today announced it has won the ISPO Brand New Company Finalist Award from a field of 151 contestants, at the WINTER 2003 ISPO in Munich, Germany. The competition was established by ISPO -- the world's largest sports trade fair -- jointly with DuPont to encourage enterprise and innovation in the sports industry. GhostriderX won for its unique line of products including the GhostBoard(tm), which gives skateboarders the feel of snowboarding or wave riding on the street.

"Our main focus is to develop and create new cutting edge quality products for both the U.S. and international markets," said Cody Boychuk, President and Founder, "and we've succeeded. With this ISPO award, our goal to create the most innovative and exciting new entry in the board sports marketplace has been validated. The GhostBoard is a one-of-a-kind product that brings the thrill of surfing to the street, and the feel of snowboarding to pavement."

The GhostBoard features patented Deep Carve System(tm) technology that incorporates the geometry of physics. The next generation design of DCS allows the skateboard to recreate the sensation of snowboarding or surfing. The 14-wheel truck assembly (seven front, seven back) adds 20-degrees additional pitch over conventional boards. Most skateboards use rubber bushings that add unnatural resistance in a turn -- GhostriderX skateboards have no bushings, which translates to zero-resistance in a turn and no speed-wobbles, letting you carve deeply and smoothly rail-to-rail.

Available in long board, freestyle, and hybrid versions (42-, 32- and 36-inches), the GhostBoard has interchangeable "designer" decks made from 7-ply Canadian hard rock maple, highest quality hardware, and supports super-fast speed wheels or ghost wheels to suit a variety of skating styles. Hot new deck styles for Spring 2003 include "Mind Jet" and "Club Kid." The GhostBoard is available direct from or through skateboard dealers worldwide.

Concludes Boychuk, "We intend to continue pushing the boundaries of street board-sports to provide consumers worldwide with a hip new forward-thinking alternative to wobbly-bushing truck systems found in conventional products."

Leading market research firms have identified board-sports as being the fastest growing market segment of the sports industry, with upwards of 20 million skateboard and snowboard users in the U.S. alone. Construction of new skate parks throughout the world is a growing trend that shows that skateboard sports have grown up and become part of the mainstream, and are no longer a sub-culture activity.

GhostriderX Skateboards LLC is a privately held company located in Los Angeles. Cody Boychuk, who helped pioneer the snowboarding industry in the early 1980s, founded the company in early 2001.

High-resolution product images, technical diagrams of the DCS system, and review units are available to media professionals on request. If used for publication, please send specimen copy.
