The McKevlin's Team captured first in three separate divisions at the Tides Kickoff Classic on March 24 & 25.  At this first of the season Eastern Surfing Association competition, McHenry Jackson took first in the Menehune division (also second in Menehune Longboard), Evan Tanner won Jr. Men Shortboard, and Glenn Tanner captured the top spot in Legends Shortboard (also second in Legends Longboard).  Congratulations to all the competitors; it was a great show!

Skate Like You Surf - Carver Skateboards

The Carver Skateboard air force has landed!  They're complete with the amazing C7 truck.  This patented invention creates the same fluid dynamic for a skateboard that a surfboard has in the water.  The front truck has a rotating arm that gives the nose of the board lateral thrust in addition to the usual rail-to-rail turn.  With this extra turning capacity, the back truck becomes a pivot point from which to snap turns much like the way fins hold in the water.  This also creates the ability to pump the board for speed  like a surfboard.  Will Roper says, "It feels more like surfing than any other skateboard."
