GHOSTRIDERX SKATEBOARDS SELECTED BY INTERNATIONAL SPORTS TRADE SHOW AS MOST EXCITING AND INNOVATIVE NEW PRODUCT
New Designs for Spring Continue Technology and Style Leadership
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - March 27, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- GhostriderX Skateboards,
LLC (www.ghostriderx.com) 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 www.GhostriderX.com or through skateboard dealers
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
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,
