The Carver Black Beauty 31.75" borns from a collaboration between Carver and Channel Islands Surfboards from the legendary shaper Al Merrick.
This classic pintail is a narrow board with a long wheelbase, that allows you to draw nice long lines along the way. Channeling from classic surfing, where power, flow, and speed are the most important things to do, this board will let you move with the style you did not know you can achieve. The revolutionary Roundhouse Mag wheels with concave contact patch will allow you to grip and rip!
You can choose to setup your Black Beauty board with either the C7 or CX surfskate trucks bt Carver. The CX will allow you to ride fakie and send aerial moves with stable landings, while the C7 will let you pump with power, and feel like you are surfing.
The Black Beauty package includes the Carver Roundhouse 68mm wheels, perfect for holding traction and fast pumping.
A lightweight TKP truck. It has patented geometry, which makes pumping much more efficient. This means you can get all of your energy straight into pumps, and move forward. Being this truck based on standard skate TKP trucks, it makes landing airs and riding fakie easier than on C7, which would be unstable for that. This will help you with air maneuvers, and even riding switch but still maintaining a surfskate feel.
The signature Carver truck that started it all! This is the one surfskate truck, that made surfing on the streets a real thing. Made to be the fastest pumping, smoothest turning truck ever, it has a patented system that adds a second axis on the front truck, which will let you snap the nose and pivot from the tail. This will drive you to the front with great speed. How alike this movement is to surf, is why a lot of pros and amateur surfers choose these trucks to train their moves, to take them from the streets to the ocean.
These wheels are designed specifically for Carver trucks. They offer tons of grip and traction. The lips on these wheels are made in a way to optimize the pump, and it will feel like a wave is pushing you out of every sharp turn with them.
