Like any dedicated surfer, team rider Josh Kerr has different boards for different conditions. As part of his Carver quiver he wanted a longer diamond tail deck for bigger carves and faster lines to compliment his shorter 28” Snapper model. We kept the width slightly pulled in to keep the weight down, and with a little extra length you can widen your stance when pumping for speed and get plenty of leverage over the front truck. Since the longer wheelbase can handle more speed, this can handle those ‘big days’ when you want a board that will hold a fast line downhill, but still snap a turn when you get to the top of those big banks. During our design session with Kerrzy he described the photos he wanted on this board; a hot girl, waves, a thatched hut, … all the elements of a great surf lifestyle. Taken by his friend and filmer Matt Kleiner, they are a true view into the life of a travelling surfer. Recommended with the CX truck set for a more progressive skate performance.

The Carver C7 is our Patented front truck designed to create the same fluid dynamic for a skateboard that a surfboard has in the water. What gives it this ability is the extra axis of movement provided by the truck's rotating arm, giving the nose of the board lateral thrust, in addition to the usual rail-to rail turn. With this extra turning capacity, the back truck becomes a pivot from which to snap turns, the way fins hold in the water while the surfboard's rocker slides on the surface of a wave. This dynamic also creates the much sought after ability to pump the board for speed, and is the feature unique to Carver that finally delivers on the long-promised feel of surfing a skateboard.
