Carver Skateboards


When we met with Josh Kerr to session design ideas for his new models, we were stoked to find that he already had a strong vision for this model. The first thing he said was how much he liked riding the little board we had given his son. We added a little bit of width for better board control, while not adding too much so it stayed small and light. And when it came to graphics he wanted to use a photo by his friend and filmer Matt Kleiner, so we worked with Matt to get the perfect shot of Josh doing what he does best; flying over the lip.

The shorter wheelbase makes pumping on the flats just effortless, but the extra width and concave makes it a good cruiser too. Includes: 6.5 C7 or CX trucks and 70mm/78a Smoke Roundhouse Wheels. L: 293/4” W: 97/8” N: 31/4” T: 61/4” WB: 161/4”

Taylor had a hand in every aspect of the design of his signature model, from the template shape and specs to the graphics. Everything is designed to work with Taylor’s style of power surfing, from the wide tail to the slightly stretched wheelbase, which provides a bit more stability at speed. This is the board he cross trains on for strength and flow, carving it up and down the hills in front of his house like he’s ripping at J-Bay.
W: 9 7/8” T: 6 3/8” N: 3 1/2” WB: 16 3/4”
