About the WaveCam
The WaveCam is the cornerstone that Original Trucks were developed around. Acting somewhat like an incline plane, the WaveCam translates the side to side force of longboard carving into up and down motion which can work with a single spring. Since the WaveCam eliminates the need for multiple resistance mechanisms (ie. two springs or two bushing halves) Original trucks can be made lower, lighter and maintained with fewer parts than many traditional longboard truck designs.

WaveCam Breakage
Original longboard trucks will come out of the box ready to turn (pun intened) your carving world upside down. That being said with continued wear and tear you will eventually go through your first set of WaveCams. A set of Original trucks with a broken pair of WaveCams will lack the crisp, clean, smooth action of an intact WaveCam set. Replacing your WaveCams will have you back on the road and good as new in no time.

95% of all WaveCam breakage is due to over-tightening. Original longboard trucks should not be tightened past the point at which the top of the WaveCams are even with the top edge of the aluminum casing tube which they fit in. Prolonged use of over-tightened trucks will result in broken WaveCams 9 times out of 10.

Extra WaveCams for Original Longboard Trucks

We have developed three longboard truck sizes, each to hit a specific rider / riding type. Similarly we have also developed three different tension springs to expand our riding possibilities. Each truck size and spring tension has a completely different feel.

We recommend that heavier riders (160 Lbs and over) as well as riders who have a lot of longboarding experience on traditional longboard trucks (randal, paris etc) go for the wider sizes of Originals (S8 200mm or S10 250mm) and for the heavier tension spring options.

Lighter riders (less than 160Lbs), beginners (who will enjoy the ease of turning) and riders who surf, and want a more surfy ride, may want to lean towards the mid or small sized hangers and the lighter tension springs.
