Carver Skateboards | The Fort Knox - A bridge for the gap between surf and skate

315

The Carver board blurs the line between skateboarding and surfing. Standing by the assumption that most surfers do own a skateboard, I’d argue there’s good reason for it to be one of these.

Carver Skateboards lent us this 31” Fort Knox board, Taylor Knox’s signature model. On it is their patented C7 signature front truck, invented by the company’s founders Greg Falk and Neil Carver. According to the company, the truck is designed to create the same fluid dynamic for a skateboard that a surfboard has in the water. The C7 has the ability to rotate laterally, like the nose of a surfboard, while the rear truck pivots with the rails like the fins.

Don't need it. My 1977 Stacy Peralta G&S model with Tracker Trucks still works just fine. And it has my parents still current phone number woodburned into it. So dont even think of swiping it.

It might work "just fine", but it definitely won't simulate surfing as well as a Carver skateboard will. Next time you're down in Santa Cruz head down to the Rip Curl shop and ask to use one of the demos (I think it was the Rip Curl shop, I could be wrong though). You'll be blown away.

So you're saying my board will only simulate simulated surfing ?
