David Carson has been pushing the boundaries of graphic design for decades, and created some of his most iconic work while telling stories of surf and skate in such seminal publications as Transworld Skateboarding and Surfer Magazine. He’s also been a lifelong surfer and skater, so it’s fitting that he would design a model for Carver.
Showcasing his signature style of intuitive collage, Carson tells a story within a single image, here evoking a dreamlike sense of oceanic memory. Set on a mid-sized Carver Proteus shape, it provides lots of front foot area so you can really spread your feet out for a proper surfboard stance.

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.
