Don't want to pay $400+ for a Carver surfskate? We hear you, and so began the search for a skateboard that would carve like a surfboard without burning a hole in the budget.
We give you the surfing Gopher!
33 inches of skateboard deck, plenty of room even if you have a wide surf stance. Kicktail to make it interesting, styled up griptape job, sensible graphic - do we really need dragons and skulls scaring the sunbathers?
How does it surf? Like a hot knife through butter, amazingly smooth, and makes skating so easy. The front truck does all the work, no need to find soft bushing, wedge trucks, and learn physics. This board just works, you will be carving and cutting back like Jerry Lopez in no time.
The wheels are 65mm to give you plenty of room to get crazy on your carves.
Seriously, it is all about the price. You can't go wrong. Buy it, store it in the boot of your car, next time you need a cool down skate, or the waves are too crowd, time to skate away!
