Carver Skateboards - 27.5" Mini Simms C7 Complete
The 27.5” Mini Simms was inspired by the super short blunt-nosed boards shaped by Bob Simmons in the late 1940’s, considered to be the father of the modern shortboard surfboard. For our skateboard version this means you get a shorter, lighter board with a wider nose right over the truck so you can place your foot as far forward as you want with full support all the way to the tip.
Without any extra weight past that, the deck is lighter and easier to throw around, making pumping this mini fast and easy. And unlike most short decks, this one is plenty wide throughout with a proper kick tail so you get the full leverage and support under your feet. Just like the surfboard version, this little board rides like a much larger board, which is why this progressive/retro model has quickly become a staff favorite, finding it’s way into all of our backpacks and car trunks.
Because of the short wheelbase it’s at its best when pumped in small, tight spaces, easily generating speed from a standstill and maintaining continuous carving. It rules in driveways and curb cuts, where you can make your own mini wave machine, like having a micro-skatepark on every sidewalk.

This is the signature truck that started it all. Still the smoothest turning, fastest pumping surf truck ever, it's at the leading edge of true surfskate performance. The patented second axis of this front truck not only increases the turning radius of your carve, but lets you snap the nose and pivot your turns off the tail. This dynamic creates thrust and drives you forward with increasing speed. The striking similarity to surfing performance has made the C7 the choice for surf training by Pros and Ams alike.
