Surf Skate | If you like skating and surfing then a surf skate is the perfect skateboard for you. Surf skates normally use specially designed truck technology that allows your skateboards front truck to swivel or gyrate back and forth giving you a carving like motion which feels similar to doing a cut back on a wave. We have noticed at our skate shop on Manly Beach that they are always gaining in popularity for full time surfers or surf beginners that want to expand their training methods. Surf Skates are one of the best ways that you can improve your surfing when the surf isn't any good. You can also use these skateboards to self generate speed.
Carver C7 Skate Surf Trucks | The Carver C7 skateboard truck is Carvers most popular and original surf skate truck. It has a spring and pin mechanism that allows the front wheels to swivel back and forth making it feel as though the board is on a wave. The C7 is the loosest model truck out of Carvers skateboard trucks range but is still stiff and solid enough to offer enough traction to generate a good top speed. Here at Henrietta skate the Carver C7 truck is the only swivel truck that we are confident is strong enough too last the constant swivel pressure of surf skating. Our management have sold many other surf skate brands on Sydney's Northern Beaches over the past 10 years and have found the C7 to be the top pick in terms of swivel technology.
Carver CX Skate Surf Trucks | The CX truck is Carver skateboards most versatile and low maintenance truck. It feels slightly less responsive then the C7 truck but offers and range of benefits that make it a good option to consider. Carvers CX truck is muti-directional allowing you to ride forwards and backwards and also has less complicated parts than the C7 making it less likely to need maintenance and easier to repair if needed. Another benefit to the carver CX having less complicated parts means they are generally cheaper than other surf skate trucks.

This type of surf skateboard truck is ideal for anyone who wants to ride with a smaller wheel and is focused more on tricks, bowl are park skating.
