Carver 26" Shark Shredder C5 Surfskate

The kids are alright... and thus deserve a surfskate that suits them. Step in the new Carver Mini Series with the 26" Shark Shredder!

 26" is small. Carver themselves recommend this size for little shredders-to-be aged 5-9. But what makes it so suitable for the young guns?

The bushings: Small but mighty, these little urethane doughnuts make more difference to a skateboard than one would expect. Normally, it's the little ones that suffer most when a standard skateboard (or cruiser, surfskate or longboard) is purchased - they won't be able to turn at all with a bushing set up designed for adults. And turning is the fun part - especially with a surfskate!

Carver have come up with the goods on these Mini Series boards though, and swapped the bushings out for something much softer than standard. Softer bushings mean less resistance when leaning, for lower effort smoother carves for those who are yet to have a growth spurt.

Carver C5 trucks: The C5 feels very similar to the CX - the most popular surfskate truck system out there - but has a lower ride height. Always a good thing for stability and ease of pushing, it's makes even more difference for people with little legs. The C5 truck will be much more manageable for kids, and the lower ride height also makes it much easier for those wanting to learn some skate tricks along the way, be it the basics, ollies or kickflips and beyond.

Hollow kingpins and axles further lower the weight of the trucks to make it a pleasure for kids to skate around.

6-ply construction: This 26" board is pressed with only 6 plies of Canadian maple - one less than your usual skateboard or surfskate. This lowers the weight of the thing still further and introduces a gentle flex for kids - super comfortable and means you don't rattle your feet off on rougher stretches of tarmac!

60mm wheels: Slightly smaller than you'd find on most adult surfskates which tend to feature wheels between 65mm and 75mm. It's a small difference but reinforces all of the good bits above - the ride height and the weight are both reduced to make it as easy as possible for kids to get carving.

Bright graphics: Ok, I'm (technically) an adult and I really like the graphics too... I mean, a pale teal background with a shark in a hawaiin shirt getting spit out of a barrel while his anglerfish friend trawls the reef below... I love it when that happens.

This is the smallest surfskate (and actually smallest skateboard!) in our whole shop, but thanks to the nice width (9.125") still has years of life in it as the kids grow older.

All in all it's an awesome product, thoroughly designed with small humans in mind. You can't really go wrong.

Awesome surfskate!

After waiting ages for the rain to stop, I have finally managed to get out and skate! I am a beginner surfskater and have a Yow meraki system with the S5 spring, but as I am a small adult (5 foot 0) I have been struggling with learning to pump, but this Carver grom board has made it so much easier, it’s a lovely snappy little board for small people. Also, not forgetting to thank Vandem for the speedy delivery!
