On June 19, 2017, Carver Israel hosted the Carver Pro Netanya. As expected, it was blistering hot in the summer sun but that did not deter Israeli surfskaters one bit – water and hats were welcomed. The city was out in full force, with hundreds of spectators checking out the action. The contest was comprised of three divisions – a U14 and U18 on the Mens’ side, and this was the first event with a dedicated Open Womens’ division. Everyone was hyped to watch the girls rip and push their limits. The format was broken up into heats, with each rider having a 45 second Run to tear it up on the course, presented with an averaged score from the judging panel. The Netanya Skatepark is a transition-rich park almost meant for riding Carver, perfect for surfskate flow, but also has some gnarlier sections for riders to really put on a show.
Carver Israel’s Team represented, gracing viewers with an Expression Session with riders Omer Shoval, Amir Refaeli, Roni Galili, and Roni Garusi. Thanks to the local legends and team riders who sat on the judges panel, Michael Galansky for hosting, and Mickey Kook / Kook International for throwing an epic event.
