Growing up, Ryan Martz was surrounded by a steady stream of the most skilled glassers on the coast, so it’s no wonder that he is now one of the most sought after resin artists in the world. Ryan’s dad Greg Martz started the Waterman’s Guild in 1983 to create the best glass shop in Southern California, where Ryan learned his trade. “Growing up under my dad, he was a perfectionist, so he drove that quality is always the bottom line here, and that’s been present since day one.” Paying his dues and working up the ranks, Ryan has developed his own signature style of resin work, each a one-of-a-kind painting made in flowing pigments that recall the movement of water or fire, frozen in time. Returning for his third resin series for Carver, Ryan made these custom designs the old school way, with pigmented resin on fiberglass for a true surf/skate graphic.
30.25” FIREFLY: A slightly shorter version of our classic Resin, this nimble model is a little snappier and easier to pump for smaller riders looking for their go-to surfskate. A proven favorite that’s just the right length so you can pump it with ease and still drop in on any hill with confidence, this is the standard by which all others are measured.
*Compatible with Carver 68mm Mag, 69mm Concave, and 70mm Mag wheels*
