How to choose the best Carver for you and your surfskate needs

Before we start, we should ask what is a Carver? If we talk about Carver Surfskates we´re talking about surfboards for the asphalt. We describe it like this because it´s really a special type of Surfskate, that is very much like surfing on a wave. These skates that Carver offers give the possibility to improve your positioning and technique out of the water.

At first glance it can look complicated to choose your Carver Surfskate, given the many lines of skates that exist in the market. But the decision is simple. You only need to take three aspects into account:
