Wide tailed boards are so much fun because you can still rip on small sections and get lots of speed on the flats too. And they’re especially good for airs because you have all that room in the tail to push off of when you leave the ground, and a full nose to land on. The Amber Flag is that kind of surfskate, wide nose and tail for full foot support and increased leverage in carves, but short in length so you can snap tight turns and get height. This short-and-wide template is the magic formula for that deck that seems equally adept at fast and tight carving and easy cruising, with everything in between. Recommended with the CX truck set for a more progressive skate performance.

What’s the difference between the C7 and the CX?
The C7 is Carver's signature surfskate front truck, and it has an incredible amount of pump and turning radius. It has a spring loaded swing arm that allows the nose of the board to sway slightly from side to side, essentially allowing you to snap your turns from the tail and pump effortlessly for speed. It is as close to surfing on land you will get!
The CX is Carver's reverse-kingpin longboard truck. It is like a standard longboard truck but given the Carver treatment, has more pump and is tighter turning. It has a similar feel to the C7 but is less extreme, so if you want a more longboard skate than surf skate but want to pump and surf, then the CX is the truck you want.
