Triton Black Star Surfskate
With its wider spooned nose and fuller kick tail, this model is ideal for banks and skateparks, and for those looking for that classic old-school feel.
Triton is born of the sea, but rides atop the land. It carves with the same power, speed and flow of the fabled finned watercraft that inspired it. Everything about it is pure surf, from the directional templates and iconic graphics to the quick turning geometry and easy rail-to-rail pump.
Triton’s high performance comes from it’s precision-pivot Carver trucks, fast and grippy Roundhouse wheels and 7 ply hard rock maple Triton deck, each the result of over 20 years of surfskate innovation and experience. Made for the world market, it comes with the commitment to good design and durability that makes Triton the true surfskate of the people so wherever you are, you can MAKE WAVES.

The original Surfskate since 1996.
It all started one quiet summer in Venice, California in 1995. Greg Falk and Neil Carver had been surfing all winter, and were pumped to surf the warmer waters of the Breakwater during the long days of summer, but it was as flat as a puddle. Not even a longboard ripple to justify getting wet. So, like the many generations before them, they took to the streets with skateboards in search of hills to surf. The historic neighborhoods of Venice and Santa Monica are a veritable skatepark of steep alleys and banks, and as they dropped in on those asphalt waves they were struck with how unlike surfing it was.
There needed to be some lateral sway, sort of like dragging the nose sideways while still in full contact with the pavement. In order to achieve this, there needed to be some kind of flexible arm that allowed for this lateral movement, and after numerous sketches, they welded up the first Carver prototype truck in the derelict garage behind Neil’s house.
It’s been over 20 years since that flat summer, and Carver is going strong and still growing. Carver continues to make the most trusted and reliable American-made surfskate equipment available, develop cutting edge innovations, and drive progression forward for all the dedicated riders who rely on our equipment for surf training and just a fun way to surf the streets.
