Carver is a proud sponsor of the USA Surf Team, the hottest group of groms to ever snap a turn. During a recent training session in Huntington Beach they met up with the team, many of whom already ride Carver, to test new demos and get feedback on board design. You’d think a group of 16 surfers would all have different opinions when it came to designing their favorite board, but Carver were surprised to hear many of the same ideas from the whole team, so they sharpened the pencil and took some notes. They all liked the performance of a 30” board with a 16” wheelbase, but wanted a little more nose kick to really lock the front foot in place for more progressive riding, like blow tails, 180 reverses and big boneless airs. The team now uses this board in training sessions to work on flow, power, stamina and style, and Carver have already witnessed the boost this has given the team. These kids are the future of surfing, and this board is the future of surfskate. Recommended with the CX truck set for most progressive surfskating.

What’s the difference between the C7 and the CX?
The C7 is Carver's signature surfskate front truck, and it has an incredible amount of pump and turning radius. It has a spring loaded swing arm that allows the nose of the board to sway slightly from side to side, essentially allowing you to snap your turns from the tail and pump effortlessly for speed. It is as close to surfing on land you will get!
The CX is Carver's reverse-kingpin longboard truck. It is like a standard longboard truck but given the Carver treatment, has more pump and is tighter turning. It has a similar feel to the C7 but is less extreme, so if you want a more longboard skate than surf skate but want to pump and surf, then the CX is the truck you want.
