Carver 28.25" Spectra Skateboard Surf Skate
The swallow-diamond tail answers the old question (we know you've had to ask yourself a million times!) "what would fish of the future look like?" While the angular nose provides a dee-dish foot pad for sharp cornering and precise control over this short sled. Need a compact board that can shred the concrete off the ground? Here you go.
The Swedish architect Sven Markelius was known for his spare geometric forms, often playing with repeating patterns and asymmetric compositions. So it's no surprise that eh found the inspiration for his Pythagoras textiles in the work of the namesake Greek mathematician known for his equations describing triangular forms.
Tacking fields of multi-hued triangles with areas of open framework reminiscent of windows, these patterns create a prism-like field of colour that simultaneously reveals the material behind it. Featuring templates drawn from the progressive fringes of surfboard design, these models embrace the future while remembering the past, pulling back the curtain on what lies ahead.

This is the signature truck that started it all. Still the smoothest turning, fastest pumping surf truck ever, it's at the leading edge of true surfskate performance. The patented second axis of this front truck not only increases the turning radius of your carve, but lets you snap the nose and pivot your turns off the tail. This dynamic creates thrust and drives you forward with increasing speed. The striking similarity to surfing performance has made the C7 the choice for surf training by Pros and Ams alike.
This is Carver’s hybrid surf and skate truck. On the one hand it’s a lightweight standard RKP (Reverse King Pin) hanger and base, on the other it has a patented geometry that squeezes every bit of turn and pump from the system. This means that you can pump this truck like a C7, but it lands airs and rides fakie with more stability as well. This opens up aerial manoeuvres, and keys in with the latest progression of airs in surfing.
