Tyler Riddler

On 12 May 2015 By Carver Skateboards

tyler1Carver’s commitment to surfskate began with surfing, so it’s natural we’d partner with shapers who’s vision overlapped with ours. Tyler Hatzikian’s focus on functional tradition dovetailed into our passion for modern surfskate perfectly. We’re stoked to introduce the new Riddler. Designed with Tyler for the local hills and alleys of El Segundo, the Riddler surfskate picks up on the interstitial space between longboard trimming and highly maneuverable carving. At 35.5″ it’s just long enough for a small cross step, while the longer wheelbase pumps faster. The mid-sized deck is also short enough to keep the responsive turning characteristics of the Riddler. A great transitional size that will help longboarders practice cutbacks and strengthen maneuvers on the wave, it features a single concave down the length and a proper kick tail for pivot turns and acid drops. Because that’s what Tyler’s Retro-Modern style is all about: integrating innovative performance with classic longboard flow and style.

SKATEBOARD SPECS:

35 1/2” Long
9 7/8” Wide

Recommended with the C7 truck set for flowing single fin performance.

And as part of the collaboration, Tyler has produced a custom Carver Riddler surfboard. A truly unique take on the evolution of the traditional noserider, the Riddler combines tight, effortless turning with a highly developed noseriding ability. The winged outline and down-rail combined with the blunt-nose design translate directly to enhanced responsiveness from both tail and tip. A classic Tyler Advanced-Traditional design.

SURFBOARD SPECS:

9’-8” to 10’ Long
23 1/2″ Wide
3 1/4” Thick
Single Fin

Carver is introducing this new collab model with Tyler Hatzikian at the Boardroom show May 16 & 17 in Del Mar California, and will be available for sale after the show. Contact us at mail@carverskateboards.com for pre-book orders.
