When the skateboarding market was exploding, the company decided to make this product available for sale. It was an attempt to capitalize on the sport’s boom in the region.

It was also mass produced and not manually controlled like they used to do before. It was very similar to Alf Jensen’s Bun Board in terms of visual characteristics.
