Smoothstar’s thruster uses compression springs, allowing you to adjust the riding tension. They’re solid for slower, surf training. With a small amount of pump, Smoothstar’s thruster will carry your momentum efficiently. They do not sell their adapter separately.

Smoothstar vs YOW

The major difference is that YOW feels more “divey”. YOW dives deeper, whereas Smoothstar pivots more. They’re both great surfskate systems, with a different riding feel.
