Danny Way once described Carve Wicked as "a way of life, not a dull blade but a sharp knife." Which is pretty spot on considering the small, close-knit and international group of skaters has often referred to Carve Wicked as "a state of mind" rather than a skate crew. But for the sake of this article and our unwillingness to come up with bunch of words to describe Carve Wicked, we're going to call them a skate crew.
The crew has been terrorizing the European skate scene for years with dudes like Steven Fox, Sam Pulley, Colin Adam, Nicky Howells, Jake Collins, Chav Dan, Beanhead and Tom Bailey as well as Carve brothers from across the pond Sam Beckett, Phil Zwijsen, Josef Scott and Julien Benoliel. Carve Wicked has one simple mission statement: Never forget the emotion that you get when stepping on your board, from your first ever carve to the latest switch 900° you have been trying. Forget ability, forget rules, forget big business, incentives, sponsorship deals, sticker placement and those judging eyes from the platform, just Carve Wicked.
Carve Wicked recently announced a new set of boards which marks Sox, Sam Pulley and Colin Adam's first pro decks, and have now released a debut pro section with Sox. From Marseille to Vietnam, Jack Thompson followed Sox on the global hunt for Chin and came back with four minutes of pure travel hype to celebrate his pro board on the brand spanking new Carve Wicked skateboard empire.
