In 1974 Ben Aipa, the legendary Hawaiian surfer and shaper, made his mark in surfboard history with the development of ‘Da Sting’, a quick-turning shape he first made for Larry Bertleman.
This sick collaboration with the Aipa family to make a Carver surfskate model that also achieves the same quick turning, fast pumping maneuvers we pioneered for skateboards in 1996. The clear sugar coat grip shows off the classic blue flames, one of the most iconic airbrush designs in surfboard history.
The C7 is Carver's signature surfskate front truck, stuff and it has an incredible amount of pump and turning radius. It has a spring-loaded swing arm that allows the nose of the board to sway slightly from side to side, essentially allowing you to snap your turns from the tail and pump effortlessly for speed.
