So what is a Surf Skate? A Surf Skate Skateboard is basically a larger cruiser or mid sized longboard that has a special truck that allows you to mimic or duplicate the pump and flow you get surfing. Skateboards were originally invented as a way for surfers to do something when the waves were flat. Have you watched Lord’s Of Dogtown? That's when it all started.
On a regular skateboard momentum if mostly gained from pushing. Riding a surf skate, momentum is generated from carving and upper body movement. Carver has always been about surfing, and of capturing that joyous feeling of flow on a skateboard. The original since 1996, Carver has led the modern surfskate movement forward with its innovative truck systems, like the reverse-kingpin CX for a quick and snappy ride, or the lower, lighter C5 for tricks and parks. And with a variety of surf-inspired shapes and concaves, along with our fast and grippy Roundhouse wheels, Carver delivers speed, power and flow so you can truly ‘Surf your Skate’.
