The Carver concept is simple: It’s a shortboard built into a wave-catching body. A powerful engine zone between the riders feet (flat rocker, double concave) with front fins and a template hip right under the back foot, mean speed and acceleration are grouped where you can best manage it. From the front fins back the power generation cuts back, leaving a sweet rockered tail that allows vertical drops and easy entry. The forward lines are classic for running speed and feed onto the engine. Added bevels in the forward bottom shape make re-entries safe and easy with no outside rail catch. The nose concave removes foam and wood, lightening the front end for fast pivot reaction. The Carver has been a super-reliable mid-length that always handles juicy waves all around the World, from Indo to France, from San Diego to Tahiti. There are literally thousands of happy Carver riders around the globe, so we happily continue to produce it as demanded.
