The hobo tradition is one of freedom and travel, and of working just enough to get by while you explore the world around you, an itinerant lifestyle that is echoed in the surfer’s peripatetic exploration of far away breaks. With folk art ingenuity the hobo carved unique portraits onto common nickels, transforming a mere five cents into something of great value for trade.
We celebrate the hobo and their counterculture spirit with this amber maple veneer deck featuring a classic hobo nickel design and clear sugar coat grip. With a longer wheelbase for more drawn out carves and easy pushing, this board will take you anywhere you want to go.

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.
