Ah…Carve Wicked. A finger in the eye of today’s overly serious skateboard scene.
Since its evolution from a hand signal and/or a chant heard across the valleys into a skateboard company, the Sam Pulley piloted Carve Wicked skateboard brand has been resolute in its commitment to a few principles.
Principle number 1 – all graphics will be based on the premise that ‘taking the piss is better than pretending that the pictures on your skateboard are in anyway profound’. This same maxim is further reinforced by adding, ‘not only take the piss with your graphics’ but ‘actively try to wind people up too‘ – a business model that has succeeded to date with each range of Carve Wicked decks released so far selling out.
Principle number 2 – all Carve Wicked riders will skate however the fuck they want and show complete and utter disregard towards what is considered trendy. This means inverts, early grabs and skating those big curved things that you can usually see in the background of those Instagram clips that people post of themselves doing late flips on the flat bottom.
In tune with the above, Summer 2018 sees the lovable Welsh/Scottish idiots return with a range of pro boards (for Sam Pulley, Sox and Colin Adam), a team board emblazoned with dog poo and a suitably tranny oriented clip of team heads Pulley, Sox, Dannie Carlsen and Colin Adam, alongside some familiar friends of the Carve via Harry Deane.
You can see each of the new boards below – along with info on sizing etc.
Now go early grab into some dog soldiers!
