The Retro Carve was first released to the outside world in 2004. It’s a crossover between a longboard and shortboard and designed for surfsk8 carving style. It’s very responsive and very low for maximum connection with the tarmac. We tested this board throughout 2003 on Llangennith’s lovely new tarmac with longboard and shortboard surfers of all ages and abilities. It’s very popular, very smooth and a fantastic ride. Donny’s favourite board for the best part of a decade reckons the Retro Carve is bsolute perfection for the back pack rider!!
Please note that only the 15mm TB60, 18mm 5ft Cruiser and 18mm Sidewalk Surfer of our boards are suitable to withstand the latest tricks involving jumping onto or off skateboards. If you wish to do such tricks then please find a board designed for that. Our boards are designed for surfing moves, cruising, carving, hanging 10, switchstance and spinners. The Retro Carve was ridden by Guts Griffiths, the powerful surfer in 2003. However we do not recommend the Retro Carve for heavier riders.We can not refund or replace any board which has been mis used.
All our Retro Carves are now made to order to your specific needs and requirements. Please contact us for details. Prices start from £135 plus carriage.
