Drift Skate USA provides one of the most unique experiences on a board to-date.

Drift skates were derived from extreme sports such as snowboarding, surfing, and skateboarding, but with a little twist. Comprised of two drift skates, one for each foot, they are ridden sideways, giving the rider a snowboard-like feeling.
They are unique in the fact that you move your feet in an s-like motion to propel yourself across the ground, so you never have to push. With your feet separated, you get more freedom in your ride than you do with other boards, allowing for sharper turns, innovative tricks, and an overall more versatile skating experience.

But what puts drift skates over the top is the fact that they are extremely portable. At 6" wide and weighing a little over 4 lbs., you can carry them in the palm of your hand, or easily fit them in a backpack, allowing you to take them with you just about anywhere. They do all this without sacrificing durability, having an almost unlimited lifespan for the average rider. Stats for Snowboard-Inspired Skates Trending: Older & Average
