With its wider spooned nose and fat tail you get full power rail transfer during deep carves and sharp cutbacks, while the concave wheels hold your deepest lines without slipping out.
Renowned as a power surfer for carving big, forceful turns that cover the entire face of the wave, Taylor Knox still surfs with as much energy as athletes half his age. And he knows a thing or two about longevity. Recognized for his grit and determination, he was a key member of the Momentum Generation in the 1990s, and enjoyed one of the longest pro surfing careers in history, racking up 22 years on the World Tour before retiring from competition in 2012.
Carver began its longest running pro athlete sponsorship with Taylor back in 2009 when he was still on tour, and now 14 years later Taylor is still ripping, a living legend who surfs and skates with the kind of power and flow we can all learn from. Custom shaped for him and set up for his style of carving, this model has been refined over the years to a polished gem, and it continues to be one of the best-selling surfskates in the Carver line.

This is Carver’s hybrid surf and skate truck. On the one hand it’s a lightweight standard RKP (Reverse King Pin) hanger and base, on the other it has a patented geometry that squeezes every bit of turn and pump from the system. This means that you can pump this truck like a C7, but it lands airs and rides fakie with more stability as well. This opens up aerial maneuvers, and keys in with the latest progression of airs in surfing.
