Carver's nickname for this model is the ‘Masters’ model. Why? The bigger guys on the USA Surf Team needed a model too. Like a 6’ 10” surfboard, this is a performance board for the men on the team, a board that holds a fast line with its extended wheelbase, all the while cutting smooth lines across the asphalt with the stability of full sized performance deck.
The longer 18” wheelbase feels best at a wide stance with your feet over the trucks for the most power in those bigger carves. USA Team surfers use this model to train for strength and power, warm up before paddling out and skate the bigger hills with stability.
The classic squash tail template gives you a proper tail to pivot from but removes some of the weight from the nose, easing rail-to-rail transitions.
The artwork is a classic resin surfboard design in the colors of the American flag, representing the essence of the team concept: Surfing America with an emphasis on SURF. This board will work equally well with either the C7 or CX truck sets; the C7 set will give the board a more flowing performance with a great range of adjustability, the CX set will give the board a more snappy performance with a lighter frame.
Ships to you assembled with 70mm 78a Carver Roundhouse wheels, ABEC 7 bearings, riser kit and SHIPS w/ your choice of CX and C7 trucks.

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.
