"Sometimes you want to dial in your wheelbase just so, and full-inch sizes are not specific enough. With the 30.25” Firefly we’ve shaved ¾” off our popular 31 Resin to make this board even snappier while still retaining the same progressive shape of an archetypal squash tail. The narrower nose keeps the front of the board light and nimble, while the proper kick tail is a wedged deckpad that locks in your back foot where it counts, giving you leverage into any tail-driven trick. From boneless air grabs and ollies to bank and ditch surfing, this little board is a true surfskate. Practice the same tricks you want to perfect in the water, plus work on flow, trim and power carves. With a 16 ½” wheelbase you get a little more stability than other shorties, but not so much that you lose the super easy pump and the driveway-tight carving. Recommended with the CX truck set for a more progressive skate performance." - Carver

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.
