Le Point Break mesure 33,75" de long, 9"7/8 de large et possède un empattement de 19".
L'axe C7 de Carver est conçu pour recréer le même mouvement dynamique et fluide d'une planche de surf sur l'eau.
Il fourni un mouvement de rotation supplémentaire ajoutant au nez de la planche un mouvement latéral en plus du mouvement traditionnel de l'axe.
Avec cette capacité de virage accrue, le derrière devient un point de pivot permettant de tourner comme une planche de surf tourne par rapport à son aileron.
Vient complète avec axes C7 et roues de 70mm.
When the director of the new Point Break approached us, he told us he wanted to work with a performance-oriented company to make the board that would not only be featured in the story of the film, but also ridden by the stunt riders for the skateboarding action scenes. We were stoked to be a part of the project so we worked directly with the stunt crew as they began rehearsing the scenes, which involved surfskating down a spiraling parking garage ramp, dodging cars and going fast.
They needed a combination of control at higher speeds while maintaining tight maneuverability and quick response. We sent them various sizes and configurations until we arrived at the best proportions. At 33 ¾” this board is not very long, but the 19” wheelbase smoothes out the ride for higher speeds, while the chopped off nose gives you a nice wide platform for your front foot for extra carving control. It was a combination that worked perfectly for the demanding requirements of a professional stunt crew, and we thought it would be something our riders would appreciate, too.
Grip Style: Double Stringer
The Carver C7 is our Patented front truck designed to create the same fluid dynamic for a skateboard that a surfboard has in the water.
What gives it this ability is the extra axis of movement provided by the truck's rotating arm, giving the nose of the board lateral thrust, in addition to the usual rail-to rail turn.
With this extra turning capacity, the back truck becomes a pivot from which to snap turns, the way fins hold in the water while the surfboard's rocker slides on the surface of a wave.
