Carver has always been about surfing, and of capturing that joyous feeling of flow on a skateboard. The original since 1996, Carver has led the modern surfskate movement forward with its innovative truck systems, like the dual-axis C7 for a smooth and flowing ride, the reverse-kingpin CX for a quick and snappy ride, or the lower, lighter C5 for tricks and parks. And with a variety of surf-inspired shapes and concaves, along with their fast and grippy Roundhouse wheels, Carver delivers speed, power and flow so you can truly ‘Surf your Skate’. 

Backdoor are expecting a big shipment of Carver skateboards, which are always a highly anticipated item, and they are continuing to get deliveries across all categories in April, autumn clothing and winter wetsuits being the major ones.  

Backdoor stock the largest range of surfboards in New Zealand, from the best surfboard manufacturers in the world. Both winners from the Rip Curl Pro recently held at Raglan were riding boards that you can order through your local Backdoor store (or via their online store and be served by Taylor himself).  

This year’s Rip Curl Pro Raglan, presented each year by Corona, was a massive milestone for the event, being the twentieth edition. The event has been the focal point of domestic surfing for two decades, with the perfect waves matched by a hefty pay day for the male and female winners. 

The event has played host to some of the biggest domestic showdowns in the history of the sport, as New Zealand’s top surfers all vie for another crack at  victory on the famous left hand point break, and this year was even more important after the  cancellation due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. 

Backdoor are the largest surf, skate, and streetwear clothing store in New Zealand, and are committed to getting you the best skate and surf wear from the best brands, so for more information on Lost surfboards, Haviana jandals and cheap wetsuits NZ please go to .
