Carver Skateboard - 27" Bureo Ahi - C5 Complete

'The Ahi', a performance skateboard made from recycled fishing nets. Based on a best-selling Carver template, this model features a double kick and nose flip design, with a fully functional tail kick. Unlike any other plastic skateboard, The Ahi is wider and has concave providing true performance and the feeling of being locked-in when riding. Built for a lifetime of riding, the durable and rigid deck maintains stability and stiffness in all riding conditions.

By coupling Carver's patented surfskate technology with Bureo’s philanthropic sustainable manufacturing process, this little ripper will not only improve your surfing but also empower you to help save the ocean that we depend on and love so much.

This board comes with a fish scale grip pattern with custom grip tape and a unique fisheye locking hole.

C5 TRUCKS

Skateboarders have invented many great tricks since the early days, and a truly modern surfskate needs to incorporate this history of progression. And so the C5 System (C5 front, C4 rear) is shorter and narrower, lowering the center of gravity and giving the tail more pop. You get higher ollies, and better control.

And the narrower hanger and deck keep it light and maneuverable. This is the next generation of surfskate, blending tricks and flow into a complex, creative expression across the urban landscape. We’ve made two completes with an equally versatile street board mold made to give you the best of both worlds.

About the brand

B U R E O = (BOO - RAY - 0)

On a mission to protect our ocean by scaling a radically transparent model to eliminate fishing net pollution; using disruptive innovation to inspire change and create tangible positive impacts.

At Bureo we work to keep the most harmful form of plastic pollution, fishing nets, from entering our oceans. We understand that, in many cases, the problem is not the fishermen but rather the lack of infrastructure available for when the nets meet their end of life. We work together with fisheries and local communities to provide an incentivized program to collect, clean, sort and recycle fishing nets into our NetPlus™ material, creating positive solutions for end-of-use fishing nets, employment opportunities for local workers, and funding for community programs. Though our focus is narrow, it’s a major piece in the puzzle to solve the plastic pollution crisis: the need for a circular economy to prevent waste from entering our oceans in the first place. We hope to extend our impact through educating communities and companies about ways to collectively work together to turn off the plastic tap.
