Yago Dora is a phenomenal surfer, bringing a deceptively easy style to massive airs and hair raising tube riding. But he’s so much more; a gentle and respectful soul who quietly taps into vast resources of power and skill. He is a naturally talented athlete, able to bring his signature smooth surf style to his skating as well.
Carver made his Skinny Goat pro-model with the same high performance standards he requires, ensuring that when you push yourself hard like he does, your feet stay securely locked in between the double-kick mold, and you get the quick maneuverability needed to deliver on such demanding expectations.
Featuring a 16.75″ wheelbase to match his surf stance and a double-kick deck for progressive surf training and skatepark surfing. The graphic art was created by his longtime surfboard painter Alan Fendrich on an Eco-certified fumed Oak veneer.
The Carver C7 Truck is Carver’s Patented front truck which is 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. As a result, this gives the nose of the board lateral thrust, in addition to the usual rail-to rail turn.
The C7 dual-axis truck set is very fluid, like riding a single fin surfboard and replicating the lateral sway you feel as you pump for speed. The dual axis allows the rider to adjust both axis independently for fine tuning. It’s a bit heavier than the CX truck, but the internal spring system allows for a wide range of adjustment. The trailing arm and wide adjustment range make this truck better for faster speeds and fluid surfing.
The arm rotates smoothly on precision industrial thrust bearings, and is dampened by a fully adjustable, heavy-duty internal die spring. This allows each rider to customize the feel of their board. But at its core, the C7 is still a skateboard truck, with a traditional hanger and standard new-school mounting hole pattern ( 2.1”, or 2 3/32” long). In addition this will fit any new-school skateboard deck, while preserving the original wheelbase. That being said, these are the perfect trucks to accommodate this board, consequently if you are looking for a setup to carve your way through the streets, with the same fluid feel as a surfboard.
