Carver wanted to make a bigger board for JOB that could rise to the challenge of his wild exploits, a full nose kick for that locked in feeling and wider stance.
Jamie O’Brien’s idea of fun would be terrifying for most of us, but growing up in front of Pipeline must have conditioned him from an early age, because he joyously puts himself in some of the burliest conditions imaginable.
His wave riding skills have earned him an impressive collection of titles and recognition as an elite pro, but it’s his fun-loving antics that have endeared him to fans around the world. His embrace of alternative surf craft is legend, an innovator of fun on everything from soft tops to inflatables. And in his garage, propped handily by the door, you will find his Carver.
So as with everything Jamie does, joining the Carver team came from an authentic connection to our boards and how they ride. It’s an alliance that shares the mission to spread the stoke,to go big and to have fun. His pro model boards, like his personality, are full of color and energy, and geared for performance.

This is the signature truck that started it all. Still the smoothest turning, fastest pumping surf truck ever, it’s at the leading edge of true surfskate performance. The patented second axis of this front truck not only increases the turning radius of your carve, but lets you snap the nose and pivot your turns off the tail. This dynamic creates thrust and drives you forward with increasing speed. The striking similarity to surfing performance has made the C7 the choice for surf training by Pros and Ams alike.
