The hobo tradition is one of freedom and travel, and of working just enough to get by while you explore the world around you, an itinerant lifestyle that is echoed in the surfer’s peripatetic exploration of far away breaks. With folk art ingenuity the hobo carved unique portraits onto common nickels, transforming a mere five cents into something of great value for trade. We celebrate the hobo and their counterculture spirit with this amber maple veneer deck featuring a classic hobo nickel design and clear sugar coat grip. With a longer wheelbase for more drawn out carves and easy pushing, this board will take you anywhere you want to go.

What’s the difference between the C7 and the CX?
The C7 is Carver’s signature surfskate front truck. It has an incredible amount of pump and turning radius, with a spring loaded swing arm that allows the nose of the board to sway slightly from side to side, with slightly wider and more stable turns than a CX truck. Basically, it feels more like a twin fin to ride, but has an adjustable spring you can tension or loosen to vary your ride.
The CX is Carver’s reverse-kingpin surfskate front truck. This truck has more pump and tighter turning than any other reverse kingpin truck on the market, but without any extra parts. It has a similar feel to the C7, allowing you to snap your turns from the tail and pump effortlessly for speed. It is more responsive than a C7 truck, with a lot more play in the tail, similar to a quad fin!
