33" Tommii Lim Proteus - CX Complete
Set on a mid-sized Carver Proteus shape, the Tommii model provides lots of front foot area so you can really spread your feet out for a proper surfboard stance.
International painter, designer and muralist Tommii Lim confronts the zeitgeist of today’s instant gratification, digital era by building large-scale works that deconstruct observation and form, seducing them into high contrast, minimalist black-and-white compositions.
Lim seeks to disrupt a viewer’s line of sight by building bold, immersive installations and murals with his Optical Sculpture techniques, employing forced perspective methods to manipulate the human eye into forming 3D objects from 2D surfaces, thus allowing the viewer to fully immerse themselves in his paintings for a brief moment in time.
Lim’s bold use of shape fits perfectly with the Proteus, itself a shape that forces a reevaluation of archetypal templates and encourages an immersive interaction.

This is Carver’s hybrid surf and skate truck. On the one hand it’s a lightweight standard RKP (Reverse King Pin) hanger and base, on the other it has a patented geometry that squeezes every bit of turn and pump from the system. This means that you can pump this truck like a C7, but it lands airs and rides fakie with more stability as well. This opens up aerial maneuvers, and keys in with the latest progression of airs in surfing.
