RipTide is based in California, where they develop RipTide bushings and other accessories, like backing frames, for longboards. RipTide delivers pretty much everything in the field of bushings. Their cone bushings are good, allround, responsive bushings, which gives you full board control. Cube bushings can be adjusted symmetrical and asymmetrical for different responses.
RipTide is in constant development and the placement in California makes it possible for the developers to skate and test boards on a continuous basis, which makes the foundation for new ideas and development. In RipTide they see longboarding as more than a weekend sport. They see it as a lifestyle.
