Carver – Mini Simmons 27.5″

265.00 

The 27.5” Mini Simmons was inspired by the super short blunt-nosed boards shaped by Bob Simmons in the late 1940’s, considered to be the father of the modern shortboard surfboard. For our skateboard version this means you get a shorter, lighter board with a wider nose right over the truck so you can place your foot as far forward as you want with full support all the way to the tip. Without any extra weight past that, the deck is lighter and easier to throw around, making pumping this mini fast and easy. And unlike most short decks, this one is plenty wide throughout with a proper kick tail so you get the full leverage and support under your feet. Just like the surfboard version, this little board rides like a much larger board, which is why this progressive/retro model has quickly become a staff favorite, finding it’s way into all of our backpacks and car trunks. Because of the short wheelbase it’s at its best when pumped in small, tight spaces, easily generating speed from a standstill and maintaining continuous carving. It rules in driveways and curb cuts, where you can make your own mini wave machine, like having a micro-skatepark on every sidewalk. Available with the CX 6.5 truck set only.

Carver Skateboards on rulamaailmas midagi erilist!

Carveri teevad eriliseks spetsiaalsed trukid, mis annavad laua ninaosale suure liikuvuse ning väga elava iseloomu – tohutult lõbus nii rulatajatele kui ka hea treenimisvahend igale surfarile.

Unikaalne laud võimaldab sul pumbata, carvida ja tugevalt asfaldi kütta. See  on tõhus vahend sisemiste lihaste ja jalgade tugevdamiseks, mida kasutad just surfamisel. Carver võimaldab teha järjestikuseid tugevaid, mõnusalt kulgevaid ning ka 180-kannapöördeid. See kõik aitab harjutada ja lihvida maapeal manöövreid, mida vaja mere peal surfates. Carver on ideaalne täiendus surfihingedele, kelle pole võimalik püüda ilusaid laineid 24h nagu Floridas.

Lisaks on Carver ülimalt lõbus linnas kulgemiseks, kuna sellega on võimalik otseses mõttes ülesmäge pumbata.

“I bought and trained with one a few weeks before going on a surf trip and I noticed a dramatic increase in my level of surfing.”

“My neighbors must think I’m crazy. I spend hours in driveway going up and down doing turns and roundhouses.”

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. Riding fakie is also like riding a surfboard, but backwards, where the nose feels squirrelly, and for this reason the C7 is a front truck only. The arm rotates smoothly on precision industrial thrust bearings, and is dampened by a fully adjustable, heavy-duty internal die spring that allows each rider to customize the feel of their board. But at its core, the C7 is still a skateboard truck, with a traditional hanger and standard mounting hole pattern that will fit any skateboard deck, while preserving the original wheelbase.
