Carver Skateboards, the pioneering surfskate made in the USA
It is a pleasure and pride for us to notify you that we already have the most influential brand in the world of surfskate, Carver Skateboards , available in our online store.
With more than 20 years in the market, it is the most powerful and best-known brand worldwide. Since its inception they have always put innovation, aesthetics and above all quality first , all their parts and components are made in the United States.
Carver, as a good American brand, has always opted to support local stores in those cities where they start selling their products , and they have a very strong policy of not selling boards to those stores that are only online and do not have a physical store. , like our case.
However, after meeting for hours and several days with Neil Carver and Greg Falk, founders of the brand, and other members of the most important leadership, they understood our great contribution to the surfskate community and have highly valued all the effort. of these 6 years of life of the Carving Social Club .
So we proudly present to you the latest from Carver Skateboards . We have been testing them, and we have made a selection of the tables that we liked the most, all of them you will find both with the classic C7 truck and with the most recent, the CX . And if by any chance you cannot find the table you are looking for on our website, contact us and we will order it for you.
In case you are not so familiar with the Carver brand, we tell you that they have two star axle models: their two most popular axles, the C7 and the CX .
The C7 is the best known, the first to be internationalized; It is a complex axle with an arm that oscillates from the tip on two needle bearings, it has an adjustable spring-pivot that allows you to tighten the axle more or less, and also two bushings to achieve even more inclination and return in turns. Easily tightening the spring, just by turning a nut, you can have a very stable surfskate for long rides, or you can loosen it all the way to have more surfer sensations , practice your turns, maneuvers or simply to warm up before entering the water.
The CX however is a much simpler axle; It is an inverted King pin (RKP) axle with a special geometry adjusted to the millimeter and two bushings also to help have more turning angle . The latter was born out of the challenge of satisfying the needs of all those who came from the world of skateboarding and longboarding and who wanted those surfing sensations, but with a little more stability, (these groups thought the C7 was a bit unstable ).
The CX is a very well done truck, very surfy and with which you can also land an ollie or an aerial with a great sense of stability , and you can even go fakie, something impossible with the C7 .
In our Carver Skateboards collection, you can find different sizes of boards ranging from 27 inches, very fun and above all portable boards, to 35.50 inch boards so you have that longboard feeling of water on asphalt. In between, other sizes and shapes, wider, wider in the tail, wider in the nose. They all come with a kick tail, so you can put your back foot in place, have more control of the board and even dare with Ollies, Aerials or Manuals.
Some even come with a nose kick, so you can position your front foot well and have that feeling of being anchored to the board, almost like on your snowboard. As is the case with the Fraktal or the Yago Dora . The latter is a Pro Model board, designed by and for the Brazilian and great promise of world surfing.
Courtney Conlogue , is another top surfer that Carver wanted to count on to develop her Pro Model , a very nice board that also meets all the needs that Courtney was looking for to train her most competitive surfing.
Another curious collaboration that the guys from Carver have made is with the legendary brand of surfboards, Channel Islands; and they have turned two of their best-selling models into surfskates: the Pod Mod and the Flyer , both of which you can find in our online store with a C7 or CX axle, whichever you prefer. They are exact copies, but in Carver, using your imagination you can feel that you are surfing one of these surfboards on the asphalt.
The guys at Carver even develop and manufacture their wheels themselves , they have different models, and they put on each surfskate the ones that they consider will be best for it and that will allow you to get the most out of the skate.
We invite you to take a look at our Carver Skateboards collection and choose the one that best suits your style, needs and taste. And you know that as always you can call or write us to answer any questions.

Hola Alex, qué tal? Casi todos los surfskates del mercado tienen un poco de wheel bite, es algo normal por el amplio ángulo de giro que proporcionan, sobretodo si te gusta hacer giros muy cerrados y exagerados. Es muy posible que tu surfskate ind. también tenga, el nuestro de test tiene, pero no es algo muy exagerado como para que te llegue a escupir la tabla. En años de experiencia usando todas las marcas del mercado jamás nos ha escupido ninguna, luego ves la tabla por debajo y tiene marcas de que ha tocado, pero eso, jamás nos ha escupido. Hubo un blog en su día que escribió que esto era un gran problema, y causó mucho revuelo, pero no es tan grave como parece. Así que anímate sin miedo, te damos nuestra palabra.

Llevo mucho tiempo pensando en agenciarme un carver con eje cx. Tengo un surfskate ind. que va de lujo para practicar técnica surfera pero quería algo más estable para recorrer la ciudad y al mismo tiempo hacer cosas un poco más de oldschool skate… Pero este eje (el cx) también hace bite wheel o eso solo lo hace el c7? Es qur me da un poco de rabia gastarme el dinero para después tener que andarle instalando risers para que no me toque la rueda en la tabla…
